- ABOUT THE SPOT
Kiteboarding / Kitesurfing in Isla Blanca, Yucatan Peninsula, Quintana Roo Mexico
Isla Blanca is a popular spot to boarders. It lies on the northern side of Cancun. There are many reasons that make boarders prefer this area to practice their favorite water sport, kiteboarding.
First of all, it is a feasible spot to all experience levels. The really huge expanse of this shallow lagoon and its flat waters may convince the less adventurous to take some kiteboarding lessons too. Besides possible, but also temporary rainfalls during hurricane season, winds won’t be a potential obstacle, since you can kite-board all wind directions. However, for experts, the best wind direction is coming from the Northwest, North and Northeast. The wind speed is stronger than 13 knots/24 kph during the period lasting from November to May.
As for the weather, Cancun has a tropical climate. That means that weather is warm and humid with small temperature differences between seasons. More specifically, the average annual temperature is 27.1°C/80.8°F. The temperature of the water fluctuates from 26°C/78.8°F in winter to 29°C/84.2°F in summer.
