Location

Yuckite's kite center is located directly on the beach and the accommodation is located just crossing the street on a quiet neighborhood in the town of Progreso. Since this is often a stop for cruise ships, there are plenty of great restaurants to visit and the local food is great. The center of town is five kilometers away, but it is easy to get there by taxi or Über.

Your kiteboarding experience will take place in Progreso, Yucatan, Mexico. Below are the kiteboarding spots chosen by Yuckite.

El Playon

“El Playón” is the main spot for teaching and the most frequented kite spot in Progreso. With a wide beach and its shallow water out a long way, it offers perfect conditions for safe and comfortable kiteboarding lessons. The wind blows mainly side-onshore, between 15-25 knots almost every day throughout the year. From beginners to pro riders, this spot is just perfect for kiting.

La Ria De Chelem

When there is southeast wind in Yucatan, you can go kiting at “la Ría de Chelem”. The water flows in from the ocean to the land and creates an impressive space for kiting. At “la Ría”, the water is flat and shallow. Due to the location’s characteristics, gusty and onshore wind, “la Ría de Chelem” is a spot only for advanced riders.

However, thanks to the local boatmen and the use of jetskis Yuckite can take the students to the middle of the wide Ría to share the amazing kite experience in this beautiful spot in a safe way. Yuckite works constantly with Chelem’s cooperative in order to improve the spot’s conditions for kiteboarding.

Chuburna

A multifarious spot! Chuburná is located in the west of Progreso, shortly after the village Chelem. A breakwater divides the beach into two: On the one side is the wavy ocean, whereas on the other side you’ll find flat water.

Things to do (optional)

Mornings here are quiet and can be spent relaxing in a hammock on the beach at the Kite center or rent a SUP and go for a paddle, or take an Über to the town center and explore the markets. Progreso has many restaurants serving fresh seafood and local cuisine, but the town itself is pretty quiet, so don't expect to find many lively bars or clubs. On no wind day there are plenty of things to do such as go on a tour to the cenotes, go scuba diving in the cenotes, visit Mayan Ruins, sailing, sailing on the hobbie cat, or SUP tours and wind SUP.

You can also check the YOGA lessons at Yuckite in the mornings and afternoons.
