Your Weekend to Celebrate

Sobriety, Fellowship & Absolute Fun!

Welcome to SUS!

Sobriety Under The Sun is a 12-Step recovery event organized by the SUS Organizing Committee, who are a group of individual members of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Al-Anon. The environment, speakers and workshops provide an opportunity for sobriety, recovery, fellowship and fun under the sun in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico.

Puerto Vallarta ~ January 18-20, 2019

Our 16th annual SUS Convention was a great success and our 17th annual SUS convention is scheduled January 18-20, 2019 and promises to be another memorable weekend with a great speaker line-up, workshops and AA and Al-Anon meetings in the beautiful, spacious Westin Hotel and Spa in Marina Vallarta (see Hotel page).

We will also have a Pre-Convention Mingle with Dinner on the Beach on Thursday Night, Jan. 17 and a Post-Convention Sober Cruise on Monday, Jan. 22.  Both are very popular,  so you may want to sign up when you register for the Convention itself. You can also make hotel reservations on this website.

Due to high demand, we will no longer be offering on-site registration or ticket purchases to any of the SUS events during the convention. Online registration and ticket event purchases will only be available for sale through the SUS website.

IMPORTANT NOTE: AS OF 12/10/18, Full Registration, Saturday Only Registration and the Saturday Night Speaker Meeting are now SOLD OUT as is the Saturday Night Dinner.  However, you can now register ONLINE for a FRIDAY, SATURDAY UNTIL 6 AND SUNDAY registration in addition to the Friday Only and Sunday Only Passes.  The Pre-Convention Mingle with Dinner on the Beach (Thursday) and Post-Convention Sober Cruise (Monday) are also still available at this time.  Remember there will be no Registration or Event Tickets available for purchase at the Convention as we expect everything to be sold out prior to the convention. 

Many SUS attendees come back year after year and we hope you will too.
