Why learn kitesurf in Bahia Salinas?

Why learn kitesurf in Bahia Salinas?

Bahia Salinas is on the north pacific side of Costa Rica and the conditions to learn kitesurf are just perfect!! Here we are going to enumerate the most important ones:

1.- Windy everyday: From end of October to end of April it is windy every single day! and during the whole day! Making it perfect for practicing kitesurfing.

2.- The wind direction is side-on: which means that the winds blows around 45º angle towards the land. This is the safest and most comfortable wind to learn kitesurf.

3.- Unknown spot: Playa Copal in Bahia Salinas is a spot that not many travellers know about. That means you will not find crowds of people kiting on the ocean at the same time. Normally we have 10-15 kiters. This makes it very safe since the chances of crashing your kite with other people are almost 0.

4.- No waves: Since we are on a small bay there are no waves. Just in february when the wind gets stronger we get about 30 inch waves, which is nothing!! The rest of the season is flat and calm!! This will make your learning process a lot easier and faster.

5.- Warm water: Forget about wetsuits!! The water temperature in Bahia Salinas is so warm that you will not need it at all. It is around 22º-24ºC.

6.- Wild life: It will be hard to find the wild life you find in Costa Rica at any other kite spot: Sea turtles, dolphins, whales, Pelicans, Flamingos…

La cruz


A place to live

La Cruz is 60km north of Liberia (Capital of Guanacaste region) and 20km south of Peñas Blancas, were the Nicaraguan border is.

The name of La cruz (“the cross” in english) is becas eof an incident that happened centuries ago. The mules used to carry the cattle form Nicaragua to Esperanza, and one of the mules was so exhausted he it reached the top of the hill that died. It was buried there and a cross was placed on that spot. After that, that cross was a reference point to let the mules take a break, before they could continue there way to Esperanza. That stop made some people settle there and that is how this town was born.

One of te most visited spots of La Cruz are its beaches, surrounded by the breathtaking Salinas Bay. This beaches remain unspoiled and natural. They are mostly enjoyed for wind addicts, mostly kiteboarding, on the windy season, November thru May.

Right on the middle of the bay is Bolaños Island, a natural reserve, where you can spot all kind of birds.

The island can be visited by boat, or if you are willing to become a kiteboarder we will ride with you to the island.

Costa Kite will teach you all you need to become an independent kiteboarder. If needed we will also help you with the accommodation.
