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 is scheduled January 20-22, 2017 and it 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.

Check out the list of speakers for our 2017 Convention below. We believe they are some of the best, definitely the “Best Speakers Under the Sun.” Specific program details about speakers, workshops, and other events during the convention will be available on the Program page closer to the date of the convention.

Browse the rest of the site to learn more about all the fun places to go while you are here in Puerto Vallarta (see about PV page). Most importantly…go to our Registration page and sign up!  Soon.  For best selection.  Because we’d love to see you.
