We are planning a trip to Cabo with my wife end of february
I am a beginner to kiteboarding which is to say i have been training with the trainer kite and have pretty good control and understanding of the kite but 0 board or sea experience
I keep hearing about los barriles and la ventana
Are these spots good to learn and find some relaxing things to do for my wife while i am away for many hours
I realize cabo offers many nicer hotels that can keep her entertained but will it be too much of a hassle for me to commute every day??
I d appreciate any thoughts recommendations
Fishermen do a thing called chumming where they throw a bunch of bloody, freshly caught fish guts into the water in order to attract other other fish. Sometimes they get a sweet catch of yellowfin or a similar, tasty fillet.
Often they get just sharks.
If you're not doing SOMETHING on the water at la Ventana you are probably very bored.
Los Barriles is about 1 1\2 hour drive from Cabo San Lucas. La Ventana is another hour. These times are one way with less than great road conditions. La Ventana is a better spot for a beginner, however. Flater water, steadier wind. There is very little/nothing to do in either place if you are not on the water (for the wife).
Thank you guys
So La Ventana it is to learn
And last week of feb is a good time??
Also any suggestions on a nice play to stay?? At least i can do that for my wife find the nicest place to stay.
And any reccommended instructors for a first time beginner??
I just got back from ten days in Los Barilles with nine days of great wind. In past years I have also had several trips to La Ventana. Both are comparable in wind (both had 9 out of 10 days of wind during my trip). The water conditions are comparable in both locations and both have good kite schools.
Los Barilles is a bigger town with things like a supermarket, shops, and a much better selection of restaraunts. Your wife will find more to do in Los Barilles. I went with a group and we found it easier to rent a house centrally located in Los Barilles. In La Ventana many of the house rentals are not near the central area and so then you will need a rental car.
