Jan-11 places with web access and inexpensive (from LAX)

Postby canucck » Thu Oct 28, 2010 7:45 pm


I am looking for a place to spend 1-2 weeks in early to mid-January, with good consistent winds, and (to support my livelihood - high speed access).

I'll be flying out of LAX. Although good value is a major consideration - high speed internet access is a necessity. Given that limitation, can anyone offer some locations, and ideally hotels, which fit that description?

My wife keeps suggesting Thailand, so that would be great, but I am wide open for Mexico, South America, or anyplace where it is relatively inexpensive.

Try Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. It's a bit more expensive than Cabarete but it's still cheap by U.S. standards. Board shorts weather and pretty decent wind for the Northern Caribbean for that time of year. I spent three weeks in Vieux Fort, Saint Lucia this past Jan/Feb. El Nino was around so it was the worst wind they'd had in awhile but it was still fun to kite there. There's a nice little place there called the Reef with pretty friendly staff and high speed internet available. Accommodation's roughly fifty bucks per night and everything down there's on the Eastern Caribbean Dollar (2 : 1 for us) so the cost of living is very low. Just about anywhere in the southern Caribbean around that time will give you consistent warm winds. Try Bahia Salinas in Costa Rica as well if you've got small kites, it's not uncommon for them to average around thirty knots in the wintertime there.
