The Destination

This Colombian kitesurfing posada is committed to protecting and honoring the unique environment that surrounds them. The hostel is set among natural vegetation where you can wake up to ocean views while you enjoy a fresh cup of coffee. The architecture looks like it belongs in Cartagena. The posada was made from eco-friendly, non-invasive, and autochthonous materials from the Caribbean region of Colombia. The hostel is located in the quiet town of La Boquilla -- a neighborhood that is much more charming than it may seem at first glance. The hostel is close enough to cultural and historical sites like Cartagena's Walls and San Felipe de Barajas Castle, yet is also tucked away from the tourist crowds. Coming home to your room from the busy city of Cartagena will feel like a peaceful retreat. This experience makes a great home base for exploring the popular landmarks of Old Shoes, the Serrezuela Bullring, Pegasos's Wharf, Bolivar Park, the Gold Museum, Palace of the Inquisition, and much more. The Rafael Núñez International Airport is just 3.5 kilometers away. The restaurants of Del Pasaje Paisa, Hotel Sonesta, the Holiday Inn, and Exito Market are all within walking distance in the daytime.

The Experience

When the wind is blowing (which is often), you'll spend your days kitesurfing along the expansive beach just out front of La Boquilla, the neighborhood home to Posada Kalea.

When the wind is down, you can also standup paddle, swim, fish, do yoga on the beach, kayak, ski, wakeboard, paramotor, and venture out on the Hobie Cat. When you're hungry, you can head back to shore and sample traditional Colombian fare at the local restaurant. At the end of the day, unwind with a cocktails from the nearby bar. The hostel understands the needs of kiteboarders and caters specifically to the kiteboarding lifestyle. Days are packed with action and nights are reserved for pure relaxation. Many kitesurfers believe that this is one of the best value kiteboarding experiences in Colombia.
