Windigo or Justbob
I am going to Cayo Guillermo next week. Where do you pay for the Kiteboarding fee? At the resort (I am staying at Sol Cayo Guillermo) or at the school?
Also were you charged a fee for your gear on the transfer bus? How much? Was it both ways or just going to the resort?
Any other advice for kiting there?
Your thoughts are much appreciated!
I stayed at the Grand Muthu, north of the Sol. I paid 25 CUC at the kite school booth at the north end of the beach in front of the Sol. That's where the jet
ski is moored. I was not charged an extra fee for my bag on the transfer bus.
My advice for kiting there, when you get out in the water, stay far away from all the people getting lessons and practicing. There were many newbies and people
learning right close to shore. Kites where crashing onto shore close to walkers and other kiters. It was kind of mayhem, especially down by the point. Tack out and
stay way from them. Definitely go down south to the flats, amazing shallow flat water with lots of space to yourself. If anything happens you can walk out to the road
and back to the hotel. Take sunglasses to wear on the water, most of the time the sun is in your eyes and its brutal without them. I didn't wear booties and had
no issues. Obey the rules and stay out of the designated swim zones and all is good.
Hope this helps.
