You will find small and big waves in this Caribbean Sea. The kite spots are 5 minutes' away from the accommodations.

Santa Veronica, just north of Cartagena, is one of the best kitesurf destinations with a beautiful coastline. The atmosphere is very tranquil, relaxed, and sunny almost all year round, making this place a perfect for kitesurfing.

Salinas del Rey has recently become popular because of its good wind conditions (15 knots - 25 knots) and waves (1.5 - 3 meters) almost in all season, the perfect spot for those who want to start kitesurfing on waves with unidirectional boards in straps and strapless or to practice in waves with the twin tip. This spot has an easy entrance to the waves and several surf-break points, usually long rights.
