Kites in Flight

January 01, 2014

We know, we know – you don’t go on vacation to go to school but, we promise, this is different. And didn’t you make a New Year’s resolution to learn something new in 2014? Well here it is: Kiteboarding School. Pairing the adrenaline-rush of surfing with the skill of piloting, this relatively new sport is growing in popularity thanks to a short learning curve (especially if you have prior experience surfing or wakeboarding) and relatively low equipment costs. But top-notch instruction is essential so head to Playa Kite on the beach and join fellow guests of our Riviera Maya resort. Our instructors are certified by the International Kiteboarding Organization so they’ll train you in everything from safety to board selection in the calm, shallow waters of the Isla Blanca lagoon and, soon, you’ll be able to check that resolution off your list.
