Located in the NW corner of Costa Rica, 1 hour drive North of the International airport of Liberia (LIR) is our Kiteboarding bay called Bahia Salinas, documented to be the 8th windiest place in the world!!! We have 25mph+ wind everyday all day long!!! (Nov to May lighter May to Aug)
We have generally flat water conditions due to an up wind reef that blocks the chop. Also an amazing island in the middle of the bay with a perfect white sand bar giving butter flat water on the inside. The kite beach, Playa Copal is long with side-on shore wind perfect for teaching and practicing after your lessons.
The weather is always warm and the water is warm most of the time. Strong winds can mix up cooler deep water during certain tides. We provide 2/2 wetsuits and booties during lessons and rentals.
Kite Lessons provided by experienced IKO instructors, French English or Spanish. We use only top of the line same year Cabrinha equipment.
We offer all types of accommodation at the kite beach from shared houses with dorms to private beach villas with pools. All include fully furnished kitchens and are directly located on or less then 2min walk to the kite beach. there is a local restaurant located on-site.
Shuttle service to and from the Liberia airport available. Driver will stop for food or grocery.
Ask us about the many activities offered in the bay or a short drive away. Also the amazing white sand secluded beaches in the area. Plenty to do and see on a day off from kiting or for the non-kiters.
