Kiteboarding

Kiteboarding magazines consistently rate La Ventana as one of the best places to learn and train. From mid-October to mid-April there's warm water and consistent wind suited for beginners to experts. 

The north wind here is more consistent than other Baja locations due to the Venturi "pinching" effect created by Cerralvo Island to our east, and the thermal suction from the rising hot air from the desert peninsula to the south. (The peninsula also is a landing spot for beginners who've drifted downwind.)

Around late morning the winds begin, light at first, and typically building to 15-25 mph in the afternoon. It usually blows all day with calm mornings and evenings for other activities or relaxing. 
You can launch on the wide beach right in front of the resort.The winds are side shore, and there's an air hose on the beach to get your kite ready quickly. Onsite gear storage is in our beach bodega.

For an extra fee, we’ll shuttle you upwind for a downwinder:
To Campground: $5. 
To Hot Springs: $10.
(2 rider minimum)
