How to Get There
Undoubtedly, VENTANA BAY RESORT is the best place in La Ventana if you are looking for relaxation and tranquility, next to a perfect kite spot. The facilities are lovely, and the rooms are comfortable, clean, and cozy.
From the first moment, all the staff make you feel as if they were your family, as if you were in your own home, but not harassing. That is a feeling that in very few places you can achieve.
And for kitesurfing the spot is great, not much people in the water, good environment, and very well-mannered.
I just finished my third trip here. Absolutely fabulous for kiteboarding, reliable sideshow winds and clear and reasonably warm water (for winter). The staff and facilities are top-notch; food is very good and the winter weather is usually ideal. Great job Bill, Antonio, Marty, Roberto, Jill and the ladies in the kitchen!
My wife and I stayed at Ventana Bay Resort for seven days in late December, including the Christmas holiday. The resort is a visual delight, with unique dome-topped buildings, colorful tilework and masterfully-executed stonework. All this is beautiful, but the stars of the show are the blue ocean water, green mountains, and Cerralvo Island (aka Jacques Cousteau Island) offshore, which changes color in the shifting light.
While the resort is a great place to just relax, the focus of most of the guests (or one (plus) of each party) is kiteboarding. During our stay, the wind was robust and the kites were out from mid-morning to late afternoon. The on-site kiteboarding school features cutting edge equipment that customers can rent or use in lessons. I was a complete novice, but kiting instructors Marty and Roberto helped me make rapid progress. They were highly skilled, patient, and fun to be around.
We ate most breakfasts and lunches at Cisco's, the on-site restaurant. The food was high-quality, mostly Mexican, and delivered with a smile by Carla and the excellent staff. The restaurant does not typically serve dinner, but there were two exceptions during our stay, "Mexican Meal" on the 23rd and a Christmas meal on the 25th. Both were outstanding. It was a pleasure to enjoy margaritas served up by the multi-talented kite instructors and meet other guests and local visitors at these events.
A special shout-out to Toni, the manager who keeps the resort running efficiently, and who offered great recommendations for dinner at local restaurants. All of the staff were wonderful and we appreciated their efforts to make our stay enjoyable. Adios, amigos--see you next time!
