Good Find Henry And Great deal on a flight
I just got back from mexico and went to Los Barriles. GREAT TIME! I hooked up with the Exotikite crew down there Ian, Taylor, Emily and Megan are extremely helpful people and for a couple days, they took care of me nicely. My GF and I stayed in a condo right on the beach next to the kite school. Was beautiful weather, water and not bad winds. They depend on Thermals so clear blue skys are a blessing, clouds kill there wind. I did not go to La Ventana but spoke with a couple that had been there for 1 week and Los Barriles for a week. He and his lady friend had been picked up from the airport. Had no car in La Ventana but rented a 4 wheeler while staying at Los Barriles. I was curious so I probed him on the 2 his personal opinion after a few cerveza's of the 2 towns were that La Ventana was a bit sleepier and had fewer amenities/accessibility than Los Barriles. He said it was harder to manage getting around without transportation there than in Los Barriles. Mentioned that La Ventana is purely about the wind and if it doesn't show up there isn't much else to do while Los Barriles does a lot of SUP, surfing, scuba, and charter fishing. If you are flying into La Paz, La Ventana is closer. Flying into Cabo, Los Barriles is closer.
Everything Mike said is Sound advice. I will also tell you to check in with your credit card/debit card companys and let them know what you are doing. Find out the fee's assigned for use international. While I was down there I wore boardshorts and a 2mm heatseeker top and I was perfect but they said a lot of people wear shortys.
Be careful and have Fun
