La Ventana is one of the best winter kiteboarding destinations. The small fishing village of La Ventana is situated about 30 miles south of La Paz on the Baja peninsula. La Ventana is recognizsed for its very consistent wind from November to April. With air temperature between 20 to 30 degrees celcius in the winter months, a 3.2 mil wet suit is usually all you need.
Baja Joe’s is where you want to stay. Great resort with laid back atmosphere, Baja Joe’s has got it all. Prime location right on the kiteboarding beach, you cannot get any closer. Very nice sandy beach, community kitchens, bicycles, paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear and more. All available to our guess. Camping is also an option. There are a couple of different campgrounds where you can stay for about $10/night.
Lots of sunscreen. Your bathing suit for sure. As for wet suit, a 3.2mil is perfect most of the winter. 4.3mil if you tend to get cold easily. For the lessons we supply the rest.
Fly into La Paz. La Paz has an international airport and is only 45 minute drive to La Ventana. Take a taxi from La Paz to La Ventana or rent a car. Or fly into San Jose Del Cabo. From there, it is a 2 hour drive to La Ventana.
