Kite School in Costa Rica
There are several kite schools in Bahia Salinas. We recommend the Blue Dream Kiteboarding Resort School. This kite school was the first kite school in Central America and the only one providing all the services a kiter deserve. Their 13 years of teaching experience has “created” more than 1500 happy students world wide. Their mission is very simple: to create kiteboarders & to make sure you have an amazing kitesurfing holiday. Every lesson at the Blue Dream Kiteboarding Resort school is conducted with high professionally standards reducing the learning curve while increasing confidence and progression.
Kite Beaches in Bahia Salinas
There are three kite beaches in Bahia Salinas. The first is Playa Copal aka “Kite Beach”. All the lessons and most people kitesurf at Kite Beach although there is still plenty of space for kitesurfing. This is Costa Rica after all and not Cabarete or Tarifa!
For those of you looking to explore, you can kitesurf to the next beach named Playa Papaturro, the one directly in front of the Blue Dream Hotel, 250 mts away and enjoy a large section of beach all to yourself. Also, on the days it is really windy (over 25-30 knots), Playa Copal can have 4-5 foot waves.
The third spot and probably the most scenic is Isla Bolañas, which is the island in the middle of the bay. Here you will enjoy butter flat turquoise clear water to practice your latest trick or take cool action photos of you kitesurfing. Here it is common to kitesurf among giant turtles and see flocks of pelicans and other tropical birds. You can even bring a snack or lunch out there and enjoy perfect white sand and stunning views of Costa Rica.
