From mid-October to April/May, La Ventana offers great conditions for a Baja California windsurfing vacation: warm water, good wind, and a variety of sailing sites well-suited to anyone from beginning water starters to freestyle experts. The north wind here is more consistent than other Baja locations due to the Venturi effect created by Cerralvo Island and the thermal suction from the rising hot air from the desert peninsula.
The wind usually starts late morning, light at first; and typically building to 15-25 mph in the afternoon. It usually blows for several hours a day with calm mornings and evenings for other activities or relaxing.There are also the epic days of the big Nortes; these days are peppered throughout the season and provide great high-wind sailing and swell for those who are up to it.
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.
Sail sizes range from 3.2 to 7.5. Windfoil boards and sails are available for for the light wind days. We also have rental wetsuits and harnesses All equipment is rigged and ready in our bodega on the beach.
The resort is in the most ideal location in La Ventana – long, sandy launch area, negligible shore break, and a wide sweeping beach downwind with ATV rescue for those who may not be able to get back upwind. Hotel guests have priority on rental gear but plenty available for walk ins as well.
Multiple day discounts do not need to be consecutive. All prices include IVA tax. Pay w/cash (U.S. or Peso) or credit card (visa/mc). Guests and daily renters are responsible for loss or damage to equipment. Renters must sign risk waiver and provide credit card prior to rental.
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!
