The air temperature is, depending on the season, between 20 and 28 degrees, the water temperature of the Mexican Caribbean between 23 and 28 degrees. The kite season goes from November till June (best months: February until May). The wind is smooth and constant with 12 – 25 knots. Most of the time, the wind comes from north east, east or south east, onshore, side-onshore or side-shore. The waves can get 5m high but break at the reef in about 800m distance from the beach. Tulum is a great spot, both to learn kiteboarding as well as to jump into the waves and work on your tricks. We recommend kite sizes from 8 to 14.

Small eco-boutique hotels meet commonly simple cabañas on the beach but face the restaurants from NYC. Tulum has grown its own identity. Apart from being home to ancient Mayan ruins and underwater caves, the cenotes, to dive and snorkel in, it is known by the international community as one of the best beach destinations in the world. Tulum has positioned itself as a leader in sustainable and ecological tourism.
Tulum offers the right wind conditions for different styles of kiteboarding: freestyle, free riding, wave style, race and long distance. The wind at the spectacular coast line in Quintana Roo blows very smooth and constant. The azure water at the long and beautiful white sand beaches of the Mexican Caribbean is warm and crystal clear. All you need is your boardshort or bikini. Our package includes a 6-day (7 nights) kite vacation in Tulum and optional a 3-day-kitetrip to El Cuyo, a little fisher village at the golf coast of Yucatan.
The package consists of a lot of freestyle action and kiteboarding with a local Pro Rider. The program will be adapted depending on the weather and wind situation. Tulum offers great kiteboarding conditions - but offers a lot in case of no-wind days, too. On top to the week in Tulum, we may add a 3 day trip to El Cuyo - the favorite spot of the local riders.
The organizer reserves the right to change the program, e.g. due to wind conditions.
Optional Trip to El Cuyo
El Cuyo is a small undiscovered little fishing village on the eastern golf coast of the Yucatan peninsula. A paradise for kite boarders, which is known for its long and lonely beaches. The spot is famous among the local riders because of the consistent wind conditions, the strong “Norte” in winter and the thermal wind in the afternoon from March on. It’s a spot where you can enjoy nature, flamingos, sea turtles, the pink water lagoon and peaceful sunsets. El Cuyo is a 2.5 hrs drive from Tulum and we do a 3-day-trip there with kiteboarding, fishing and barbecue. Fresh fish is guaranteed. We'll stay in double rooms in a beach house directly at the beach of El Cuyo.
