I managed to book a few days on the Riviera Maya / Cozumel, seemed like a better balance than La Ventana for my non-kiting, less... rough-it-up wife. I know that by mid-March we're expecting winds to fire up in the Bay, but couldn't make it earlier...
I searched on the forums the few references to the spots around there (Cozumel, Tulum), but any insider knowledge would be greatly appreciated. I promise to post back my "travel impressions" in exchange!
Unfortunately, I could do only 1 night in Cozumel and the remaining in Mayakoba (think Capitan Laffite, just N of Playa del Carmen), as latter is a resort wedding gift (and pretext for the tri)p. I understand there are some launches right off, Xcalacoco, Coco Beach, Punta Maroma, with Puerto Morelos a bit further N (and some access issues?). I'll definitely drive down to Tulum at least once, but was wondering how big a difference is b/w Tulum and the others. Also, is the wind so much better on Cozumel?
Does anybody know [b]whom to look up down there (Pl[/b]aya/Tulum/Cozumel) in order to get into the "local loop"?
I'm planning on taking a 12m and 9m, not sure I could even squeeze a third kite anyway.
