hey thats cool
My family's from Bolivia and I go there almost every year.
There are barely any place to ride.
In the city of Cochabamba, there is this one lake.
In La Paz, there is this lake called Lago Titicaca, but it probably is deep.
Near Potosi, on your way to the Sal de Uyuni, the largest salt desert in the world, there you will find stunning lakes inhabitated by flamingos.
There are random lakes as you pass by the altiplano as well.(Near La Paz.)
Tell me where exactly you will be stationed.
Hope this helps

Go to Sal de Uyuni,
Would be epic for flat water lakes in some of the most unreal scenery in the world, no shit. Only problem is its real remote.

at lago titicaca and the altiplano, its always windy.
No one goes kiting at the sal de uyuni. Maybe you'll be the first.
Since your the first, supposedly, you have to see for yourself.
What part are you going in bolivia?

Try to contact Fernando Praud, a.k.a. la Wawa. I think you can reach him at http://www.delwawa.com or otherwise you will find his link on the web page of Mancora (http://www.vivamancora.com). He has done a kite tour to the altiplano and rode the salt lakes. Wawa will be able to give you first hand info.

Don't even think about kiting in any place around any salar,
water is poisonous even if looks beautiful.

Flamingos (big birds) are one of the only animals that can take advantage from this water without getting affected.
