The Kite Expedition to Cabo de la Vela takes you to Colombia’s No.1 kitespot, with reliable wind and flat and shallow water. It’s a ‘no worries’ package that lets you focus on learning to kite or simply enjoying the unique spot. Read more about Cabo de la Vela here.
We pick you up early in your hostel in Riohacha and drive about 3 hours in northern direction to Cabo de la Vela. Right in the afternoon, we begin with your kite lessons and then distribute them across the following days.
In the mornings we can take a hike (or a motorbike ride) to the nearby hill ‘Pilon de Azucar’ with a great view over the landscape.
Or watch the beautiful desert sunrise, explore the Devil’s Cove and go snorkelling for lobsters there.
You will be staying in chinchorros (huge comfy hammocks) in a traditional Posada/Rancheria, right in front of the spot. Tutorial on how to sleep best included!
If you still prefer a room, this is available too at an additional cost.
Staying in a desert village brings you back to basics, there is little energy and water, so be prepared.
Cabo de la Vela is indigenous territory of the Wayuu; while there you will learn about their culture and traditions. We work in association with local NGOs in Cabo de la Vela:
For every sold Kite Expedition we donate 10 USD to their cause.
