Panama is a small country that has big possibilities for kitesurfers. The sport is gaining more and more popularity here since the first stage of the PKRA was held in Panama in 2014. Warm weather, vast coast with exposure to strong Pacific winds, and beautiful nature make Panama a desirable vacation spot for kiters from the U.S. and Europe. The wind season in Panama lasts from December to April lets them escape the cold weather.
The most popular kitesurfing spot in Panama is Punta Chame, particularly Nitro City action sports resort with kite-friendly pools and special amenities for kitesurfers. Since Punta Chame hosted a PKRA competition, it has firmly established itself as a hip kiting spot. Punta Chame is suitable for kitesurfers of all levels. There are vast beaches and comfortable learning conditions. There is a sandbar at low tide.
San Blas Islands is another fantastic kitesurfing location. Apart from beautiful nature and good wind, it offers an opportunity to get close to the local Kuna people and learn about their culture.
