There's no agenda there let hope with Puclaro-Chile as that is suggesting anyone can come at any time and it is equally good...
sure you're right do you own a school?
Cheddaz, Believe it or no, Puclaro is an incredible place. We don't have a school there, here is a review:
SOUTH AMERICA ---> CHILE --->IV REGION --->LA SERENA ---> VICUNA --->PUCLARO
Here is why:
The Embalse Puclaro is located near the best of the world spot for astronomic porpuses, wish is well known for his clear skyes
(chek this out)
And if the sky is clear, the wind is a fact.
Kiteboarding Spot Name: Puclaro (Gualliguaica town)
In the valley there are several cabins, and nice facilities, close by.. (10 min away). The town itself is new, due to a Dam made 5 years ago.
Restaurants and places to go to VicuÃƒÂ±a has good fullfiling places... nicer places more touristic, you have to go inside the valley.
Other activities are available for the family Valle del Elqui is recognized to be a very mistic place in Chile. And also is where our national liquor is produce out of grape, so you have several vineyards.
Biking, Ecotourism, horsback riding, trekking are other activities in the area. As well as Astronomic Observatories (some worlwide known!). Valle del Elqui is known for having a micro climate and clear skies everyday!...
Average living cost per day Very cheap. If you stay in the town with the locals...you pay not more than 5.000 pesos (8 dolars) a night.
A nice room in a town close by (if you go with a girlfriend or boyfriend or just a friend)... around 16 dolars per night.
Food is cheap.

Beach and the rigging area At the moment The beach area is divided Windsurfers from Kiters (downwards and more open).
Some rocks, no facilities on the beach itself...is actually a rather "rustic" spot in general... it hasnt been exploited yet!! very very soul and mistic...
Water (temperature, waves, chop, etc.):
Flat and Choppy (when windy, you get pretty good chops)
Obstacles to look out for:
The beach is not safe. Is getting better all the time, but need to look out for rocks... Wind on the shore is gusty so waterstart is with body in the water and have to bring the kite rapidly to the other side... That makes it a place not for begginers..
Kiteboarding do's and dont's in area:
Not for first day learning!!
Believe me...is a place like no other...
Besides 40-60 minutes away you have the beach...and an excelent spot for high season called Puerto Aldea
