Everyone knows that whale watching tours are a big deal here in Baja every winter. But ask any windsurfer or kite boarder where they yearn to go in Baja, and you’ll hear one universal response—La Ventana!
The word means “window” in Spanish, but here I think it’s more appropriately translated as “WIND..OH!!!” The northern winter winds seriously blow here, and that’s why it’s such a world-class destination for these sports.
My brother loves to windsurf almost as much as he loves to snow ski, and La Ventana has been on his bucket list for years now. So I did what any loving sister would do when only 45 minutes away from a sibling’s dream destination. I drove down to check it out for him!
Of course, there’d be plenty of tanned, muscular young men calling each other “Dude!”, so I considered this daytrip my “Dude Watching Tour” (ah, such a research assignment!).
Millie and I jumped in the Tracker and started following the first VW bus we saw with surf gear loaded on the roof. This would surely lead us straight to La Ventana…. and we were right!
