We are a group of experienced kite surfers ( old 45 years old :-) ) who which to visit Santa Veronica around Nov-Dec this year. We've been travelling around for years now and never visited Colombia.
Any idea whats the winds and conditions like at this time ? how is the spot? Any wave?
We also love the night life so considering in staying in Kartagena and to travel to santa Veronica just to kite. Is it possible to kite in Karagena ?

Is there good places to sleep in Cartagena ? any night life there ? things to do ?

Any word on the place will be highly appreciated as information is quiet thin.

Much appreciated :thumb:

Not sure where Santa Veronica is, but I travelled along a part of the coast and put all ito the spots section of this site. Have a look.
Cartagena has lots of Kiting, but I think wind starts December...Best Jan-Mar.
Sweet wave right in front of the old town of Cartagena...in front of the cafe Del Mar.

Of course there is lots of nightlife too.

Many hotels to choose from.

Hi Zedzed, my name is Sebastian Salazar, I own a kite company in Colombia, the name is Colombiakite and we are main distributors for some important brands, we have more than 14 year of experience kitting in Colombia and other countries, so we can help you with this.
Santa Veronica is a place that usually gets the wind season in late December and the wind blows until April-June, in this moment we have 2 weeks of wind, its call a little summer. The wind speed varies between 15 to 30 kts, it has a good wave for beginners and intermedia kiters, the wave never brakes that hard.
There is no night life in Santa Veronica and the closes city is Barranquilla (30min by car, not that much of public transportation.
I personally live in Cartagena, its located 50min from Santa Veronica, Night Life is amazing and a lot of restaurants, discos, bar and hotels. Our company also has a kite hostel located on the beach, the name is Posada Kalea, you can check it on Booking, Instagram or Facebook and if you like please contact me directly and I will help you with the reservation or any other doubt you have, my phone number is +57 3136717339 and my emails are ssalazarb7@hotmail.com or colombiakite@gmail.com, I'll be very glad to help you with anything.

Kindly,

Hi Sebastian, thank you so much for all the valuable information.
Is it also possible to kite in Cartagena ?
Actually we are considering to stay in Cartagena and if possible to kite there and in Santa Veronica.

So if we consider to come late November/beginning of December it is not good time ?

I will defiantly contact you and thank you for all recommendations
