Unique set up because of the 90 degree angle of the coast, that creates a captive beach, no getting lost at sea, we are inside of the Golfo Dulce.
With winds from 12 to 25 miles an hour, the spot is very safe to learn versus the north of the country, that is more for advanced kiters.
The thermal wind starts to blow around 11am, quits around 4pm.
Side shore wind.
The best wind is from december to August. But I have kited up to 10 days a month in the off season.
There is also have a wave riding spot for more experienced kiters.
If there is no wind, wax up your surf board, and catch the world class waves, various spots for beginners and experts.
5 mn from Pavones, famous for surfing, one of the longest wave of the world.
30 mn from Zancudo, long sandy beach.
