Isla Holbox, let's go kiting!

Postby saildawg » Thu Sep 26, 2013 4:06 pm

All the beaches of Isla Holbox are officially open to kiting. The ban last year from the main beach and Punta Coco was because of kiters not respecting protected wildlife areas and other beach users. Holbox is a great place to kite with a laid back friendly population. Come, enjoy and show some respect. Thanks to those that worked so hard on this, Davide, Patrick, Gabo, Luca, Antoine and the rest of my kiting amigos.

Also the little island south (Isla do Amor or so) ?
That was great riding there, been there before any bans. Magic place!

Main Beach, Punta Coco and Playa Ensenada all open. Isla Passion, Toby, is a bird breading area and has been closed to kiting for many years though powerboats loaded with touristos don't seem to be a problem. Punta Coco is a bit north of Isla Passion and gives great access to the flatwater of the bay.
