Where to Kite in cancun?

Postby acctx » Mon Jun 12, 2017 11:54 pm

It is weird, every single post or article focuses on isla blanca or the beach near the wet and wild. But no one addresses the obvious question

Is kitesurfing (launching/landing) in the hotel zone, in front of the hotels, allowed?

If it is allowed, are the conditions relatively safe? (plenty of room, no rocks/trees etc).

Just as an update since no one answered. Wind was side on from the south east. Waves were somewhat disorganized and around 3 meters but breaking close to shore. Lifeguard said that there is no problem to kite in front of the hotels in the hotel zone. (I am at the JW marriott). Right now we are getting storm surge, normal wave action isnt nearly so big. But I think it is not buttery smooth which is why it isnt a popular kite spot. The beach so far isnt crowded at all, Ill see later this week when the sun comes out.

the inside was mostly whitewater but seemed kiteable. I ended up forgetting my bar so no kiting for me.

Are you still here? What kind of bar do you need? 4 or 5 line?
