Elemental Kite Club

2 Minute Read

Elemental Kite Club offers an adventurous kitesurfing experience on the tranquil shores of Costa Esmeralda in Veracruz, Mexico. The peaceful beach and ideal weather conditions make the location perfect for this fast growing extreme sport. The Elemental Kite Club has teamed up with Taboga, a beautiful eco boutique hotel, to provide facilities tailored to meet the needs of kitesurfers. Good wind, delicious food, lots of sunshine and gracious hospitality will entice visitors to stay long past their holiday.

Guests can pump kites up on the large lawn between the rooms and the ocean, also providing ample space for cleaning, drying and storing kites. There are miles of empty, hazardless beach to enjoy—one may find oneself solo on the beautiful sea. After a brilliant session, kiters can land their gear on the lawn in front of the palm-thatch Palapa Bar and rinse off with a fresh water shower before relaxing with a delicious snack or a mango margarita. Guests can finish the day with a dip in the lovely pool.

The windy season on this part of the Gulf of Mexico starts in October and continues through to June, with wind direction is mainly sideshore or side onshore. From November to February strong northerly winds “Nortes” are common throughout the season. The wind usually blows all afternoon so mornings can be spent relaxing by the pool, treating yourself to a massage in our spa, enjoying the local nature on one of our eco-tours or by taking a trip to the ancient ruins of El Tajin. These activities are ideal for non-kiting guests and low-wind days so there is always plenty of fun to be had. In the evenings, guest can enjoy a delicious dinner at the Mexican Fusion restaurant, chill out in the Jacuzzi, and then join us on the beach for a bonfire and endless stargazing.

Elemental Kite Club was created by two keen kitesurfing friends. La Costa Esmeralda is the perfect spot for adventurous kitesurfers from all over the world to get together and share their passion. Here kiters can enjoy excellent living facilities and great service in a safe environment, plus miles of coast to explore by kite or on foot. In the near future Elemental Kite Club will open a Kitesurfing School offering lessons to beginners and intermediate students, as well as an equipment rental service and a kite store.

Elemental Kite Club also organizes downwinders to and from our beach plus kite trips to nearby locations such as the huge Laguna Tamihua, a relatively unexplored spot combining flat water and strong winds.
