North of Riohacha you can find the beach of Mayapo, a kite spot with ideal conditions for the first attempts at getting on the board. It’s only a 45 minute drive away.


It is perfect to end your session with a downwinder following the coastline until returning to Riohacha. The 18 km downwinder takes about 1 hour and is suitable for riders with intermediate level - easy and optimal for those who’ve never done a downwinder before. 


The conditions are very similar to those in Riohacha.
