I was in Cuba before I knew how to kite; I rented a car in La Habana with the family and went to Viñales and Trinidad. In retrospect; I think there are tons of possible sites to explore in a kite (starting from La Habana). I would go to Viñales (it is a grate town to visit) and try to kite on the north coast areas near it. Even in trinidad you could kite in the bay area if the wind direction is from the north.

While the kiting in Cayo Coco and Guillermo looks really nice, we aren't so into the all-in-one resort vibe. Hoping to find some other spots along that massive coast, but there aren't many reports beyond the resort areas. Anybody have some suggestions for other spots to check out? Our Spanish is good, as is our willingness for some rough adventures.


I get your point, you could spend a few days at [url]http://www.cubakitevillage.com/

I've never been there but it seems a nice option to me

Questions,

When is wind season , or when should I not go - cause wind stats bad?

My GF windsurf so is there an area to rent and sail and kite ?

Anyone explore St Lucia?

What airports available from states other than HabAna?

Can you guys post pics and any info available ?

Thanks in advance

Max

Include good and bad experiences! One tip a friend on a package deal and they wanted $50 to board kite gear on bus He argued and got away w/o paying. But he had been there before and called him on it

Are there some low key places where I can just live close to the beach and get to know a typical Cuban lifestyle? Where would I find this?
