I wish I could rate less than one star for renting kiteboarding equipment, which mind you takes last priority over all the other 15 items available for rent there. First off best of luck finding somebody to help out with renting gear and once you do find somebody who works there they are very confused, unorganized and very unprofessional! I have rented from four different kite rental spots in Colombia with nothing but positive reviews until I came here. Not only are lessons and rentals the same price but nobody there seems to know why, just pay me money. The price is literally double of everyplace else I have rented and you recieve minimal service or none whatsoever. I rented here for three days due to lack of options on the island. Tried changing kites one day with no luck after waiting for 30 min mid session to locate somebody who knew what a kite was then come to find out the bigger kite had a hole, surprising. As I was attempting to change kites another kiter came in to shore to tell the "staff," and I use that term very loosely, that a kiter had lost his board and was pretty much stuck way down wind yet nobody noticed or even seemed to care. I was absolutely amazed. If you are a beginner kiteboarder be sure to watch out for the sail boats, motorboats, kayaks, jet skis, water trikes and snorkelers all in the kiting area. This island has so much more potential to be an excellent kite spot, I just would strongly steer one away from ever renting any kite equipment from here.

Great instructor, and cute too. It was hard and she helped me get it down. It gets hot so bring some water, and sun block.

Great place to do kiteboarding, really! Whether you're advanced or first timer, this is a perfect place to try it out. Believe me, I wouldn't do it anywhere else in the island. These guys are good and handle things with professionalism. Would definetly go back!
