10 Reasons Why Every Kiter Should Travel To El Yaque

  1. The wind is blowing all year round. El Yaque’s wind season is from October till July with the best months from February till June and is averaging 25 knots. This year El Yaque barely had any no-wind days. And even in August and September, which are the months with the least wind, you can still kite once or twice a week.
     
  2. Unlike most places in the Caribbean, El Yaque doesn’t get much rain. November and December are the rainy months but that doesn’t shut off the wind.
     
  3. All kite schools work with rescue boats and take beginning kiters out to the ocean. No danger or having to worry about bumping into other kiters.
     
  4. El Yaque has lots of kite schools to choose from with experienced IKO Kite Instructors knowing Spanish, German, English, French, Russian, Italian, Portuguese and many more.
     
  5. From El Yaque you can easily get to other amazing Kitespots in Venezuela like Coche Island, La Restinga, Los Roques, Araya, Cubagua, la Tortuga, Adicora, Puerto La Cruz, etc.

Besides windsurfing and kitesurfing, you can go Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP), join a Yoga or Zumba class, go mountain biking, running, exercise in the town’s Gym or be picked up at your hotel for some horse riding in La Restinga or the Peninsula of Macanao and many more.
     
  7. Prices are ridiculously cheap. You can get a nice room with air conditioning and breakfast for as low as 30$ a night.
