Discovered by windsurfers 15 years ago, La Ventana has become the perfect kitesurfing spot thanks to its steady winds from November to March and to its L-shape sandy beach with sideshore winds.

Beginners can start safely from the main campground launching site and end up downwind in the bay on the sandy beach and walk back.


The best season for the wind is November to March when the wind usually blows daily from 11:00AM to 5:00PM at 15-20 knots. has a realtime wind sensor available to its subscribers and offers a daily wind forecast during the winter season:

La Ventana wind forecast:


Water temperature is around 70 degrees F during the winter, but because of the wind, a full wetsuit (3/2 or 4/3) is generally recommended. From March to November, a shorty is more than enough.
Water is usually flat to little choppy with a occasional swell breaking in front of Palapas Ventana, La Camaronera reef or La Bufadora reef.
