Riohacha is one of the places in La Guajira with the best wind quality. Its constant wind brings the perfect conditions to progress and learn something new.


On top, its vast beach offers you all the space you need (50-100m wide, from Valle de los Cangrejos until the touristic pier) with safe side-onshore wind. Sometimes the river mouth of Rio Rancheria offers a small flatwater spot for advanced riders.


The months with most wind are: January until April and June/July. 

Being the capital of the department La Guajira, Riohacha counts with an airport (Almirante Padilla Airport), a bus terminal, various banks, two malls (Suchiima and Exito) and diverse accommodation in hotels, hostels, airbnb and more.


You are going to love the water front lined with palmtrees where the Wayuu and other artists show their handcrafted artisanry. From the pier or the malecon, enjoy the view of the sunset.
