This was the best kiteboarding vacation we have ever had. The kite beach is beautiful with side-onshore winds, no shore break, but variable water; chop, smooth water, and swell in different places. A high island offshore, Isla Bolanos, creates a lovely focal point in the bay. Nicola, the owner, and Juan give lessons and there are four Costa Rican "beach... More

We were attracted to this place by all the merits and beautiful pictures posted on their website, as well because I'm a Kitesurfer. Once arrived on site, what a disappointment, an horrible place, dirty rooms, filthy showers and a smell inside the room, unsustainable. We have not even take out our suitcases from our car, have returned the keys to... More

Bahía Salinas has to be one of the calmest beach areas in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. The nice breeze makes the heat bearable and the beaches are wonderful. This is a much more rustic and serene spot in comparison to other beaches in Guanacaste. If you are in the mood for kite surfing this will definitely be the spot.
