I had a great time at Kite Addict, cosy hostel on the beach of the Cabo. The owners made me feel very welcome, we shared meals and cooking tips, some great coffee and even crepes in the morning. The "Kite kids" were also contributing to the great atmosphere of the place and a special BIG UP to the best bartender... More

Remote location but not that difficult to reach there. You just need to leave from santa marta very early to get in time the connection transport in Riohacha then Uribia. That was easy and smooth for me. Arriving there Sophie welcomed me as soon as I stepped out from the car. I was autonomous with my kite/board gear and just... More

Had been in contact with the owner with regards to our arrival date and lesson requirements, at the owners request. On arrival we were greeted from the truck. The owner was not there, and the staff had no idea who we were. My friend was a total beginner. They told us he would need 12 hours of lessons, they only... More

Perfect spot to go kitesurfing for both experienced as beginners! Flat water, always windy, sometimes the only persoon on the water and a unique location in the dessert of Cabo de la Vela. Definitely a recommendation! Also to stay in one of the very comfortabel hammocks of the kiteschool. The staff of the kite school will make you feel at... More

I can't say enough good things about this school. Wonderful friendly staff and instructors- who are all amazing kite surfers. Relaxing and fun atmosphere. Lounging in luxurious chinchorros (gorgeous oversized hammocks made by the local Wayuu people) underneath an expansive starry sky. All that plus I'm completely hooked on kitesurfing now. If in Cabo de Vela, or in Colombia and... More

I had a great 4 days at Kite Addict Colombia! Sophie and Martin were great hosts. The winds are always strong and the people are fantastic. Cabe de la Vela is very remote... if you make it there, you won't be disappointed. This is a great place for beginners (me!) or experts.

Cabo de la Vela is a very nice town in the desert of Guajira. It is an awesome experience to be there and there is a bunch of hotels and restaurants since the town lives from tourism. If you get there don't forget to bring enough money, specifically when you want to continue to Punta Gallinas (What I can highly... More

First of all it is important to realise that cabo lives off tourists. Its not a authentic village with no other tourists. Instead it is a not too clean tiny village packed with basic hospedajes and restaurants. But it is still a very nice place where its easy to get away from the crowds (not that many tourists make it... More
