I copied and pasted something a wrote for another thread. I hope it helps.runner1 wrote:Thanks a lot for your suggestions, they are much appreciated and there were a couple of spots I had not considered:
Sri Lanka: While it undoubtedly has great kiting and lots to see, I thought that the kiting was away from the more interesting parts of the country?
Mui Ne: We have been there (not kiting) unfortunately and I dont think I can convince the missus to go back to the same place.
Bahia Salinas: Sounds great for kiting but hard to find any more information about the area itself, is there much appeal there for a non-kiter?
Cabarete sounds ideal but unfortunately I should have added that while the dates are not fully fixed we will be going sometime between and October and January and I take it that there is very little wind in Cabarete then.
Cumbuco (or similar along that coast) sounds pretty good and seems the most likely so far (and would be a definite if it was Spanish speaking).
Any other options in Latin America at this time of the year?
If you need more info, don't hesitate to ask..
"... Cartagena, on the Colombian Caribbean coast, is a great kitesurfing destination. The main spot is known as La Boquilla. Good winds, hot water, long stretches of unpopulated beaches. Whist, it never gets too crowded, there are Kitesurfers here from all over the world. Some nut cases hang out right in front of the historic city but, this unlikely spot is not for everyone. It's all about rocks and waves and, impressing the tourists.
The good season here is from December to March, when the trade winds are blowing. Any other time, as I said, you must travel up north to Cabo de la Vela.
In Cabo de la Vela you'll find a couple of kitesurfing schools. Cabo has no electricity and the facilities are pretty basic. You can rent a hammock and/or small rooms and have succulent fish and lobster meals arranged, with local Wayuu ladies/families. The Wayuus are the indigenous ethno-linguistic group who inhabit the region. ..."
