With four major areas for water sports, Mexico is a dream destination for any kitesurfer. Baja California, Pacific Coast, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean/Yucatan waters offer all possible conditions for kitesurfers of all levels. The Yucatan peninsula is undoubtedly the most popular place for kiters due to many amenities and accommodation, as well as established spots like Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Baja California on the Pacific coast also attracts surfers of all kinds. Kiteboarding season in Mexico generally lasts from November through August, offering about 4-5 days out of the week with the wind around 12-25 knots. Yet, Punta Abreojos and Punta San Carlos have strong and steady wind all year round.

Cancun is the most popular resort in Mexico, and it doesn't lack great kitesurfing spots. Isla Blanca is a peninsula boasting a huge saltwater lagoon Chacmuchuc that is nicknamed Kiteparadise. With turquoise water and white sandy beach, it's the best kitesurfing spot in the Riviera Maya!

Another great kitesurfing spot on the Yucatan peninsula is Sisal, not far from Merida. A charming fishing village with flamingo sanctuary and a large lagoon is perfect for those who are tired from a busy and touristic Cancun. The wind there blows almost all year around. El Cuyo is another lovely beach off the beaten path with beachfront Kitehouses, a biosphere reserve, and turquoise waters.

On the Pacific coast, it's worth to check out Bucerias in Riviera Nayarit. The Bahia de Banderas is heaven for water sports fans, surrounded by jungle and mountains. Every May Bucerias hosts the Festival del Viento, an international kiteboarding festival. The strongest wind blows here from March to June. La Ventana in Baja California, features daily thermal winds. It also has a large kite community, especially during the winter.
