About this trip

La Ventana is a small fishing village on the shore of La Ventana Bay south of La Paz on the eastern (sea of cortez) side of the Baja California peninsula in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. La Ventana Bay (Bahia de la Ventana) is well known for consistent north winds that blow from November to April, and is considered a really great kiteboarding, windsurfing and SUP downwinding destinations for all around riders. This trip was designed to give you some incredible 5-6 mile downwind runs, go stand up paddeling with whales, snorkling in crystal clear waters and enjoy the beautiful and relaxing beach front resort and hot tub. We do ask that you have intermediate to advanced stand up paddelboarding experience because we will be paddeling in large wind and swell conditions.

Perfect trip! Nicole and Malia are the best yoga instructors I know, what a treat to spend a week with them. Plus they are warm, loving and super FUN! This trip more than delivered on food, accommodations and adventure. Victoria and LuAnn kicked it as SUP leaders—so organized and safe and also FUN!! This is my second trip with this group, would do it again!!
We had a great time with Mike and Victoria. We saw more during this trip than we would have traveled by ourselves. Was fun experiencing Puerto Jimenez with friends that has been there before. We visited all the local restaurants and craft shops, The team went our of there way to adjust planning to fit everyone's needs. Great paddling in the mangroves , jungle hiking trip , boat trip and local organic chocolate farm were on the menu. We rented a car to drive down from San Jose. This is highly recommended if you want to explore more during your trip. Great experience. Cheers untill next time.

This was such an amazing trip, I am so impatient to get back on the water and apply what I learned. Location: beautiful and quite accessible in terms of travel time and convenience. Lodging: genuine hospitality and connection with the community, plus comfortable and scenic to boot. The retreat: I learned so much! Not only from Mike & Victoria but from the great group they convened. I felt that people were really supportive and helping each other stretch to goals. Oh, and I ate delicious food and met the interesting folks who work at Palapas La Ventana. I totally recommend this retreat for anyone who wants take their paddling to the next level and have a bit of adventure. I can't wait to go again next year!
Best trip ever. After this trip, my confidence in paddling downwind in 12-20kt winds has increased significantly, thanks to semi-private instruction from Mike and kitesurf support from Victoria. The "curriculum" was first-rate and appropriately taught for all of us at differing skill levels. Such fresh seafood and amazing cuisine both at Palapas and at all the restaurants that Victoria had already sampled. Palapas Ventana was fully supported and staffed for downwind needs; I was very impressed with Tim's welcome talk and introducing his staff by name the first night. I felt very welcomed and felt like I was amongst new friends rather than just another guest. HIGHLY recommend this trip to anybody wanting to paddle rougher waters or learning to downwind surf. I can't wait to go back next year!

This trip was an A+ adventure. The Stand Up Paddle Board, biking, and hiking were expertly led by Victoria Anweiler and Amy Green with good humor, patience, and skill. Nicole Harrow is a yoga instructor extraordinaire and topped off the whole experience with both excellent yoga--flow and restorative--and her amazing ability to center everyone emotionally and spiritually. I loved every minute of it.
