The sport of kitesurfing began at the end of 1990’s. In Costa Rica, kitesurfing began to be taught in the year 2000 in Bahia Salinas at the school which is now called “Blue Dream” (the first in Central America). The teacher there, Nicola Bertoldi, was the only instructor – now there are 4 different kitesurfing schools in the country. This sport is practiced between November and August. Costa Rica is one the 5 windiest places in the world between December and March, with an average of 20/25 knots of wind every day. There are no organized kitesurfing competitions in Costa Rica.

If you’re interested in a unique kitesurfing experience in an a largely undiscovered refuge of peace, come down to “Blue Dream”. Experience the last unknown beauty of Costa Rica in privacy, comfort, security and fun. Combine relaxation, excellent food and adrenaline sports like kitesurfing with personalized service, surrouneded by wild nature and the best beaches of Costa Rica. We are located on the north Pacific Coast, in the sunny province of Guanacaste, 12 kms away from La Cruz, only 250 m away from Papaturro beach in Bahina Salinas.
