Short stay in Cancun and made it out on the water for $20.

Aquaworld in the hotel zone rents all rounders for use in the Laguna.

Couple of other outfits do SUP tours into the mangroves on the north or south end of the Laguna, I’ll try those next time and report back.

SUP General / Recycled water (purple pipes)

Anyone flatwater paddle regularly in a lake with recycled water? 

The kind that used to be marked by purple pipes? 

Just wondering because I’m seeing more and more subdivisions that use it for their lakes, streams, and water features.  They have also moved away from the purple pipes and the “stink” that people associate with poo water by having a sign with all kinds of rules posted: no swimming, catch and release only, no pets allowed in the water, etc.....but no mention that this is because the water is recycled (kinda sneaky if you ask me).

I found this interesting because the use of recycled water is apparently becoming more widespread and some might not be aware that their local spot is using it.

Yes I know all water has flowed through multiple people and animals, and that the use of recycled water for things like golf courses saves the more filtered and treated stuff for our drinking supply.

Also wondering what the standards are for determining when water is “recycled” versus when it’s cleaned enough to be discharged into rivers, lakes, etc.

Spending a short half a day in PR next month and would like to rent a board and try out the surf around Isla Verde beach.

Just wondering if there are any rental places on or near the beach that would make for a quick afternoon surf session?

Oh and any tips on that break or area would be appreciated too.
