Hello Alice.
Planning on taking a break in 2010 and learning to kitesurf sounds a pretty good thing to do for a couple of months or so. I have heard your place is really cheap, as you state above in fact ($300 per month for all that wow).
Your website suggests something different however - (eg: $760 for the 5 day Spanish and kitesurf thing). Thats a BIG difference - can you explain?

Hey lee, just wrote you an email, let me know if you didn´t get it.

Just so your clear, above I am talking about the room for rent. we also offer the kite surfing course which costs $300 and we do offer other packages that include accom, spanish and kiting.

we have actually just bought some cabañas on the beach so if you wanted to stay there it would be a bit cheaper.
The spanish courses are seperate so I can send the prices to you if you want to learn spanish, which i reccomend it is great fun chatting away with the locals!
So yeah the month in the villa is $300, msorry for any misunderstanding there, but yes we are still the cheapest place in the world the learn to kite, so if you want to learn and pay a 3rd of the price, Ecuador is the way to go! Reply to this

Hi Alice,

Thinking of coming in November, possibly for a month. Is this villa still available at this price? Also, if friends come is there room in the villa or are there other options? Reply to this

Hi There,

Yes the Villa is still the same price, we also have some beach cabins that have 3 double rooms, so if mates come and visit you can hang out down on the beach. Are you thinking of taking spanish lessons or kite surfing?

Let me know if you have any more questions, email me at
