Montañita Spanish Language School :: Learn Spanish in the famous beach and surf village of Montañita, Ecuador - Spanish & Kitesurf
Spanish & Kitesurfing

Kite Surfing is the new, amazing water sport. Imagine zipping along the sea, under the power of the wind or even jumping the waves and flying in the air. It’s all possible. Santa Mariantita is the best beach in Ecuador to practice kite surfing. It is located just outside the city of Manta and has perfect conditions for almost all year around. The kite surf season here in Ecuador is between April and December. However even outside the wind season you will encounter windy days that will blow your mind of kitesurfing. The combination of learning Spanish in the morning hours and getting your hair wet and windy in the afternoon is the perfect way to enjoy your stay in Ecuador.

The kite surf spot is next to Manta so the Spanish classes will take place in Manta at our partner school. Spanish Classes will always been given in the morning and we will bring you to the beach with our transport in the afternoon for the kite surf classes.
