The most popular spot would have to be Bahia Salinas which is located in the north west corner of Costa Rica and is said to have 25mph+ wind all day, everyday. It’s a great spot for beginners and advanced surfers alike; with its strong winds and mild waves, you’d never regret going there.

Like everything else though, there are said to be some inconsistencies in the wind and the hotel services in some area. It’d be best to rent out a place near the kitehouse that’s inexpensive so everything would be in the same place or you can rent out villas on the beach front. Looking up surfer recommended places is also a great way to start, you’d have a general idea on where to stay, which places to go to and what restaurants to eat at. It’s always great to travel and to explore new places or if you’ve been there already, to visit it again; recount memories and create new ones.
