Placed in the west shore of Mexico, in the Gulf of California is the adventurous Punta San Carlos, a Kitesurfers heaven on earth! The rural location, which is 50 miles from the nearest town, is a watersports mecca. Offering a wide range of kitesurfing spots, along with windsurfing, SUP, Surfing, Mountain biking, and all at no extra cost!
There are no luxury hotels with spas here, instead all accommodation is tented. However these aren't your usual weekend camping tents, they're really comfy, with masses of pillows, comfy beds, and set on protected carpeted tarmac. They're as luxury as tents get! Delicious hot meals and BBQ's are prepared for you, with soft drinks, spirits, and alcoholic beverages also included in the price.
There’s an added value to this adventure, the transfer from San Diego to Punta San Carlos is made by a light aircraft, so you can arrive the spot in a little time and be kitesurfing in the same day you arrive and on the same day you leave.
Another point to make about Punta San Carlos is that although the days are hot, the evenings are cool, allowing comfortable nights.
Punta San Carlos - Baja California, is not an ideal destination for kids, as all the activities revolve around sports, the conditions are not suitable for kids to learn or practice, and there is no kids equipment available on site.
There are 4 different sailing conditions that coexist in the same spot:
- Beachbreak: This is beginner’s favorite wave, it’s long and soft and really easy to get in and out.
- The Point: A really windy section, the wave is more taxing and breaks with more power than the one in the Beachbreak. The wave breaks far from the shore and there’s a logic extended riding into The Chili Point.
- The Chili Point: There’s a reef in the middle of the bay so the wave breaks left and right of it, you’ll need to know how to manage waves and have at least, an intermediate level.
- Bombora: Great for jumping and quick wave riding end & outs.
Being a destinations that entirely revolves around kitesurfing, windsurfing, surfing, SUP, and general sports, it is not geared up for crazy nights. Evenings are best spent enjoying the delicious meals, in a social atmosphere, discussing your day on the water.
The campsite has deluxe tents loaded with pillows, pads and freshly laundered sleeping bags; all the hot meals and all the beverages are included. Kayaks, mountain bikes, surfboards and stand up paddle boards are some of the toys that are at your disposal.
The facilities include hot showers, private bathrooms, TV/DVD, darts, ping pong, pool table, library…
There is private instruction and coaching available: windsurfing & kitesurfing (intermediate ability level required), surfing, stand up paddle board, mountain biking and digital photography.
