CHECK OUT THE LOCAL TRAILS
The Mountain Biking in and around La Ventana is Awesome; There are now many miles of trails that have been built by intrepid seasonal residents as well as some of the locals. There is a trail network a few miles to our north, up past El Sargento, and another just to our south.
Most of the riding to the south is smooth and meandering; easy for beginners looking to get out into the incredible desert scenery. Keep an eye out for cactus on the sides of the trails; long sleeves are a good idea for this reason, as well as for sun protection. The trails to the north are more technical with fast and flowing downhills and lots of great scenery as well.
During the months of December, January, and February you probably want a full suit with short sleeves (3mm/2mm), especially if you get cold easily. Fo early and late season sailing a shorty or spring suit is fine. Bring gloves, booties and a helmet if you want them for sailing or kiting.
Would definitely come back and recommend it to others. The staff was very helpful, the beach is amazing; the cabin was just right and the gear all rigged and ready to go was sweet (you don't need any more gear!) What can I say, it's a Windsurfer's paradise. I was fortunate to have near perfect sailing conditions with high winds for 4 of my five days. The SUP boards and kayaks were a big hit with my non-sailing family members and really nice to have access to on those glassy mornings. The hot tub and fridge full of beer was the icing on the cake. Thanks and hope to be down again next winter.
We were so incredibly happy with your place. Nothing could've been better. The location was perfect for the event, the place is beautiful and we cannot say enough about the food. Thank you so much for having us. We now know where we'll be staying when we come to La Ventana again. Everyone was very friendly and we look forward to meeting you next time we're there.
If you want to go where life's warm and slow, go to Baja. If you want fantastic wind for kiting, go to La Ventana. If you want the place to relax well, eat amazing food, lounge in the shade and watch the kite/air show or sit in the hot tub after you get out of the water, go to Ventana Windports. You can feel the care and hard work that Esteban and crew have put into creating this place over the years. You'll not find another like it anywhere.
My wife and I spent a week at Ventana Windsports between Christmas and New Year's. It's a beautiful place with all the comforts of home, but none of the annoyances, and plenty of wind. Steve keeps about several quivers of sails rigged and in a bodega on the beach, right next to a big rack of about 35 boards in any range you could ever need. Sailing literally out of his backyard/beach – that's the way a vacation should be! On the calm days, my wife took beginner lessons and I went exploring in one of the kayaks. Overall, it was a great vacation!
