Cancun Kitesurfing 2023 - Kitesurfing Spots, Camps, Lessons & Hotels


Cancun's reputation rests on its kilometers of resorts and uninterrupted nightlife. The city is one of Mexico's crown jewels since it has everything a tourist might want. 

Just beyond the municipal limits, many of the Attractions of Mexico are around this city and you can learn everything about the region's ancient Mayan past at landmarks like the Chichen Itza pyramids.

The city also features some of the most luxurious beaches in the Caribbean, and water sports enthusiasts, such as scuba divers and snorkelers, will have a blast exploring the underwater sculptures at the Museo Subacuático de Arte. Also, the city has become one of the most famous spots for kitesurfing and kiteboarding recently and attracts many tourists all year round for this activity.

Best spots for kiteboarding in Cancun 

Isla Blanca

Located only a few kilometers north of Cancun, the little island of Isla Blanca is almost made for kitesurfers and kiteboarders. Kiteboarders are the only ones who seem interested in its unspoiled shoreline. Regular winds provide excellent surfing conditions, and the lagoon's flat, shallow water makes it a good place for beginners to try this sport. 

Isla Blanca has sandy beaches and crystal clear water quality. It barely gets crowded and as the waves are not very rough, it is considered to be a non-dangerous spot.

Kitesurfing schools in Isla Blanca

There are a few schools in Isla Blanca that offer lessons for those interested. One of these places is Windnomadskitesurfing where they offer private and group lessons alongside facilities rental which is great for beginners. 

kitesurfmexico is another great place for kitesurfers to learn or enhance their skills. They offer a variety of lessons for learners with different types of skills.

kiteboardmexico is another place to learn kitesurfing which also provides accommodation. However, we strongly recommend that you do not limit yourself to accommodations to only Isla Blanca as there are many amazing hotels and resorts in Cancun.

Punta Nizuc

Punta Nizuc is famous and attractive to tourists for many reasons. For sure one of the reasons is the underwater world of the great Mayan reef beneath the water which is an attractive place for deep diving and snorkeling. This activity becomes even more exciting as there are many different underwater species living in this area. 

Because the water is both shallow and flat in this location, it is very easy and quick to recover the kiteboard, making it an ideal area for beginner kitesurfers. Because there are many palm trees on the shore, the beach offers a great deal of shade and has a very natural appearance. Due to the fact that all of those characteristics come together so well in Punta Nizuc, it is widely considered to be one of the top kite surfing spots in all of Mexico.

Note that according to some sources during in Nizuc is restricted, therefore make sure you are allowed to surf at the time of your visit to prevent any inconveniences.

El Cuyo

El Cuyo is around 2 hours and 30 minutes by car from Cancun. There are around 1,750 people living in the little fishing community of El Cuyo, which is located in the state of Yucatan in Mexico. It is a fishing port that can be found at the very top of the state, at the most northeastern corner.

The majority of kiteboarders have not yet discovered El Cuyo, despite the fact that it is an amazing area for kitesurfing in the Gulf of Mexico. Few people are aware of the fact that there are a lot of windy days here. It is also considered to be one of the greatest places in Mexico and all of North America for beginners to learn how to kiteboard. The relatively shallow seas, which make it possible to make out the individual grains of sand that make up the seafloor, instill confidence in first-timers.
