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. 

Our 15th annual SUS Convention was a great success and our 16th annual SUS convention is scheduled January 19-21, 2018 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). Many SUS attendees come back year after year and we hope you will too. Registration for the 2018 Convention will open up mid-year and we will let you know the exact date for that and more details on this website. Check back or get on our email list.

We have audio files of the four Speakers and the Speaker & Spouse Panel at the 2017 Convention now available for sale. Click here to go directly to that page.
