Overview

HOLBOX KITEBOARDING SCHOOL is the only watersport center on HOLBOX ISLAND. We are open all year around. Our main watersport activity is Kiteboarding, but we also do paddle boarding, windsurfing and wakeboarding. If you think Holbox is boring, just visit us at Casa Las Tortugas and we will prove you otherwise.
