Too commercialized

The instructor was shouting at the students many students left the camp and got to ride I witnessed with my own eye
I don’t recommend Gonzales
Went to another kite school was able to ride in the first hour
Don’t recommend the school at all

Absolutely stunning experience!!! Great equipment, so no queue and everyone is kiting in his schedule. Friendly people (though I believe it is a common feature of all kite community:), especially charming owners Eusebi & Ruben. Special thanks to my coach Karolina (@karolinka.kat) as she didn't give up and managed to teach me kiting and I finally got that pure feeling of free sliding)) I m a living proof that she can handle students any size 😆 (I'm 202 cm height)

It's not a first kite school(station) I visited. And with 100% confidence I can tell it one it is definitely one of the best if not the best one. Wind conditions were pretty good - this mean we were able to kite 70% of time. Logistics organized in extraordinary way - the rescue boat is always ready and there is one instructions that his only duty is rescue/help for students. Instructors are very experienced and patience. My wife took her beginner course here and started to ride in a week. I just rented the board and even for me the station stuff was always glad to give advise and help with launching/landing and helping after some mistakes.
Bottom line - highly recommended kite school and place! (They also has well maintained small hotel and very tastful dinner. Don't miss)

We took the course and accommodation in Margarita Kite school in the end of February. It was just perfect begging of the vacation - all the personal is very nice and responsive, bungalow village is great and the vibe is great too! we felt very comfortable here.
The food was great as well.
Our kite instructor was Nik and we enjoyed learning with him a lot - he was interested in teaching us and explained everything very well:)
Can definitely recommend this school!

Hey lovely margarita team:) First I just wanna say THANK YOU - I had an unforgetable time at your camp and I‘m so happy I decided to stay with you:) Most important to mention are the super lovely stuff working there, everyone was so helpful and funny, and the vibes at the camp are just awesome!!! I planed to stay 2 weeks but it became 3 in the end:)

The camp has 3 locations which are all pretty close by the lagoon and it’s possible to walk or to take one of the offered bycicles to move from one to the other location. My room was at the Kite Center which is located directly at the lagoon (boat to the beach leaves from there whenever you want and the bar is also located there) and for me traveling by myself it was perfect to stay there. The room was quite nice and clean. In the morning I could join yoga at the bar, after breakfast I relaxed at the bar, had a cup of iced coffee and waited for the wind with everyone else.. and every evening after kite surfing we had a beer at the bar together and enjoyed the incredible sunset over the lagoon:)

If someone is up to party there is often going on something at one of the other camps which are easily reached by tuctuc:) From time to time there is also a party going on at the bar at Kite Center:)

The kite lessons I had were well organised and I had a very experienced instructor. After the refresher course I could rent gear. In the beginning I felt a little bit nervous but all the beach boys and the instructors were still very helpful and always kept an eye on me:)

Food was always very tasty:)

Again THANK YOU!
