Kite spots in La Guajira

Discover some of Colombia’s greatest and most secluded kitesurf locations.


The Department ‘La Guajira’ is by far the area in Colombia with the strongest winds. It is pretty much just one big semi-desert, which generates strong thermal winds that combine with the north-east trade winds to wind strengths of up to 40 knots. It is for example in only 150km distance to the island Aruba, known across the globe for its strong winds.


Being a peninsula, ‘La Guajira’ offers a vast amount of beaches, many of them completely empty, remote and not that easy to reach. An unspoilt paradise for kiters.
