Costa Rica – The Video

A month in Costa Rica with endless beaches discoveries, magic sunsets, unforgettable jungle hikes, perfect surfing, and hardcore kiteboarding…

Here is the video of this first part of our Costa Rica visit.

Now we are off to Nicaragua, and back in Costa Rica in 3 weeks to further explore the south of the country.


Kiteboarding Costa Rica

I knew the north of Costa Rica was windy, but not to this point.

Bahia Salinas in known for being the windiest place in Central America. This year, it was the windiest place on earth. During our 5 days stay, the wind never went below 40 knots, often nuking above 50 knots with stones flying on the beach and smoke on the water;-(

To get a chance to ride (survive), I had to borrow Ulysses tiny 7m kite and wait for the afternoon when the wind usually dropped around 40 knots… A real stretch for the body with some painful crashes: I might be to old for that!

You can have a look at the below video at 15′ to witness the mayhem.

And here are a few shots from the video…

The Grenadines – The Dream

The Grenadines are the crown-jewels of the south Caribbean islands. Dream colors. Dream waters. Dream islands. Dream people. All blending into an impressionist canvas created by nature.

We have lived a pure moment of happiness with the family and good friends in this sailors’ heaven. A wonderful experience, enjoying intimate connection with nature, taking time to dive, fish, ride, chat, and stare at the stars at night.

This video is a celebration of the beauty of the Grenadines !

The photo gallery showcases many lifestyle and aerial shots (yes, the drone is back) that reveal the unique beauty of those islands.

As usual, you can find the full Caribbean Windward Island and Grenadines trip photos album here

Now, we are having a little rest in Martinique before we head North !
