We took personal windsurfing lessons on three separate days. Excellent instruction, good equipment, nice location, co-located in a very family oriented, comfortable and friendly hotel right on the beach. Would recommend Sotavento to anyone at any level for windsurfing rental or instruction. Very customer focused and hard working.

It was my first time windsurfing and the teachers patiently worked with us. I went with a group of people through work. It was a blast!

I booked a private 90 minute lesson for my two kids as an excursion on a cruise. Albir was an excellent instructor with patience and a personality of gold!! It's amazing that they were both windsurfing solo by the end of the lesson. THANK YOU Albir for an amazing experience - my kids can't wait to do it again!

I live on the island and wanted to learn a watersport. I didn't know whether I wanted to windsurf or kitesurf. Then I found Sotavento Water Sports. I'm so happy I did. They personalized a program for me that involved wind and kite surfing. I was able to experience both in order to decide which I like most. The classes... More

Albir & his team are great! Open, timely communication. On time. They keep it fun & professional. I did 3 kitesurf sessions, and was already getting up on the board by my second session. It went so well that when I decided to buy my gear Albir helped coordinate everything & it all arrived in no time...so I'm back on... More

I took windsurfing lessons while on vacation in San Juan last week. I was able to sign up for two two-hour sessions on consecutive days and received one-on-one instruction both times. The equipment is very well maintained, and the location is easy to get to by the 53 bus line from the Condado area. Lydiana as an instructor was EXTREMELY... More
