Colombia is gaining recognition as a kitesurfing destination. With its lively culture, pristine beaches with Caribbean waters, and consistent trade winds, Colombia beckons riders to experience the thrill of kiteboarding amidst its tropical splendor.
Colombia is a country of contrasts, boasting the Amazon rainforest, the Andes Mountains, and a Caribbean coastline. Along the Caribbean coast, kitesurfers find a haven where warm waters meet reliable winds, creating an ideal playground for their passion.
The kitesurfing season in Colombia aligns with the consistent trade winds prevalent along its northern coast. The best time for kitesurfing is generally from December to April, when the trade winds, known as the “Alisios,” blow steadily from the northeast. During this period, riders can expect wind speeds ranging from 15 to 25 knots, providing optimal conditions for kiteboarding.
On the Caribbean coast, Salinas del Rey (Santa Veronica) is another emerging kitesurfing paradise with consistent winds and spacious beaches.
While not on the mainland, San Andres Island is worth mentioning for its kitesurfing opportunities. The island’s winds create favorable conditions for kiteboarding, and riders can explore the clear waters and vibrant marine life surrounding this Caribbean gem.
In the Andean highlands, Lago Calima offers kitesurfers a freshwater haven. With consistent thermal winds riders enjoy a serene setting surrounded by lush mountains.
