This island, located in the Sea of Cortez that Jaques Cousteau dubbed the "Aquarium of The World" is an incredible paradise for Diving, Fishing and now..Kiting.

Our wind season is Nov - March when the NW winds blow 15-30 knots - Our daily wind is a thermal that funnels between the Cerralvo Island Channel and the valley of Los Planes and our strongest wind is the Coya or El Norte which brings rideable waves to our beaches. La Ventana claim to fame is the consistency of its wind, laid back atmosphere, and friendly people.........take your shoes off and stay awhile
