Kitesurfing is one of the fastest growing water sports in Costa Rica. The large Caribbean beaches that criss-cross the country have always attracted surfers, and over the last decade, more people have discovered the unique style of kitesurfing. Competitions can be intimidating to beginners, and most don’t even try it. But many of those who have tried it swear by it.
Bahia Salinas Camps & Kitesurf Courses
In recent years, Bahia Salinas has been an attraction for watersport fans from all over the world. Located on the western coast about ten miles from San Jose de Alajuela, the area is surrounded by sparkling white water and lush tropical forests.
It is one of the windiest places in the world, which makes it the perfect place for kitesurfing. Even expert kitesurfers will admit that Bahia Salinas is one of the best places in the world to learn the sport.
Playa Jandia In The Caribbeans
Other kiteboarding activities in the area include surf lessons from experienced surfers, sailing, and sightseeing. There is also a small museum in the area that features photographs and stories of the lives of the island’s original inhabitants, as well as the world’s first indoor kitesurfing competition, which was held in 1980.
Safe Kitesurfing Classes In Playa Blanca
The second surf area in the region is the Playa Blanca, which is just as large as the Jandia Playa. This is a wonderful place for beginners to practice kitesurfing if they prefer flat water areas, as most of the courses at Playa Blanca are grassed. However, most of the activities at this park involve jumping and landing in water, so if you are looking for something more extreme or technical, check out the other two locations on the Playa.
Exotic Surfing In El Garraton
Finally, we come to the third place where you can learn and participate in kitesurfing, the El Garrafon National Park. It is the perfect for this sport, both for beginners and experts. The waters are wide open and calm, so you don’t have to worry about currents or high winds.
