Introducing Bahía Salinas
Bahía Salinas is not just the best place in all of Costa Rica for kitesurfing, it's also a stunning, under the radar destination even if you don't ride wind. Although giddy riders do shred beneath magnificent rainbows that arch over a wide and deep bay extending all the way to Nicaragua. The deconstructed nature of the destination – communities congregate on stunning, empty beaches clumped with tropical forests home to howler tribes, and linked by dirt roads – creates a tranquilo rural vibe. There are two massive residential developments in the works, with rumors of over 200 houses going in above magnificent Playa Jobó by 2014. You can already see the outline of a rather weighty footprint, and if these projects come to full fruition, Bahia Salinas won't be the same. Get here soon.
