This is one of the most knowned kitesurf spots in Mayan Riviera. This spot has been the stop for international competitions. Playa del Carmen is a coastal resort town in Mexico, along the Yucatán Peninsula’s Riviera Maya strip of Caribbean shoreline. In the state of Quintana Roo, it’s known for its palm-lined beaches and coral reefs. Its Quinta Avenida pedestrian thoroughfare runs parallel to the beach, with blocks of shops, restaurants and nightspots ranging from laid-back bars to dance clubs. Playa del Carmen is lots of fun and a great place to mingle with interesting people from around the globe.

    I was looking for a professional team who could help me learn kiteboarding from basics to independent with a focus on safety and the team here did a fantastic job! Not only a great skill building but also tons of fun. Always felt safe and had a super time. Very good customer service from the guys that work there. They picked me up in the airport in Cancun and safely took me to my destination in Playa del Carmen. As a solo female traveler, I felt safe and comfortable. They did the same upon my return to the states. I would recommend to my friends.

    The staff is amazing, they know what they are doing. In two days I was on my way. They also have very nice equipment. I had a wonderful time there. My instructor Cesar was a great teacher! Very patient, answering all my questions and my safety was always a priority. I obtained a lot of confidence even when I struggled during my learning process! And the best part: every day ended with a big smile! Cesar Thank you for sharing your kitesurfing passion with me!! 🙂
    I cant wait to be back soon!

    Where to begin! The I’M YOUR TRIP team in Mexico are incredibly welcoming and the location is beyond stunning (the last undeveloped beach in Playa). The onshore wind and rolling waves combine to allow the rider to essentially ‘surf’ on their onshore run, a fairly surreal experience. The equipment provided was the most modern, and frankly the best I have ever kited with, whilst the instructor Cesar was full of tips to improve my technique. From a price perspective the rate was completely in line. All in all a great experience, Totally recommend!

Our trip includes picking you up from the airport. Here you will find more information:

Arrival by airplane
Please book your flight to arrive at Cancún International Airport (CUN).

A travel-insurance policy to cover theft, loss, adventure sports and medical problems is a very good idea. Some policies specifically exclude dangerous activities, so check carefully to make sure you're covered for all your activities of choice.

Kiteboarding, or kitesurfing, is one of the most exhilarating sports and combines aspects of surfing, wakeboarding, paragliding, and more. Ride wherever you want with only the tranquil sound of the wind in your ears. Jump 30 feet off flat water without a ramp. Surf more waves in one day than you ever thought possible.

The short answer is 10 knots and up, but it's always more fun with more wind.
Yes.. it's possible to kite in 8-9 knots or so but it requires more skills and can be frustrating.
The steadier the wind the better.

A basic level of fitness is all you need. Modern gear can be adjusted to work for people in a broad range of physical abilities.

Normally the best period is from mid of November until the end of May on the Riviera Maya Coast, and till end of July in the "Golf of Mexico" area.

Even summer time(June/July/August) gives us some very good Kiteboarding days.
