The State of Veracruz has amazing kiteboarding beaches. In Puerto Veracruz you can kiteboard on different kite spots and beaches where the locals usually kitesurf, such as: Playa Boca del Río, Playa del Hotel Camino Real, Playa Santa Anna (Tampiquera) y Playa Iguana.

The state’s better beaches run along the incredible Costa Esmeralda, a fifty km strip north of the Veracruz port, around five hrs driving from Mexico City.
