Whitewater and wilderness trips

La Parguera (Puerto Rico): Kiteboarding and other sports

A picturesque fishing village of La Parguera is situated at the south-west corner of the Puerto Rico, it is a 3-hour drive from San-Juan. The unique feature of La Parguera is the huge beautiful lagoon with numerous mangrove islands. This is a perfect spot to play with kites and boards or just relax and have a good time. You will not find big waves in the lagoon no matter how strong the winds are.

The main purpose of this trip is to learn the great sport of kiteboarding. Subject to a little luck with a wind, we plan to spend at least 4 days out of 5 doing just that. A very experienced captain and kiteboarding instructor, Luis Mendoza will be in charge of all our water activities.

All group members will be able to participate in many recreational and fan sports, such as wakeboarding, SUP-boarding, whitewater kayak lessons, sailing, diving, canyoning, caving, fishing, etc.

La Parguera activities

We accommodate you in a luxury penthouse condo ( sleeps 5-7) with a huge roof terrace overlooking the lagoon. Larger groups may be accomodated in 3- or 4-bedroom house.

Every morning we come to one of the mangrove islands in the boat, inflate and lunch our kites and then learn or play until 4 or 5 pm. In evening time we either have a home-made dinner on our roof terrace or drive around the island visiting local restaurants, or checking some spectacular spots like Cabo Rojo lighthouse at the sunset.

On days when the whole group chooses to take non-kiting/wakeboarding activities, we drive you to the location in early morning, where we meet our guides, get instructions and gear - and spend the better part of the day doing what we chose to do together (canyoning, caving, fishing). There are certain restrictions concerning minimum size of the party, so it is usually required of all group members to agree on the day action plan in advance.
