Puclaro: ever blowing!
This is a spot that has wind all year round, yes you hear me, all year! The strong season is from end of august to may, from june to july few windy days. The average wind strenght is around 20-25 knots. The spot is a dam located in the feet of the Elqui Valley which is a very dry and hot place that receives the venturi effect from the mountains and starts blowing early in the morning because of the change of temperature coming from the cold Pacific Ocean.
The little town around the dam is called Gualliguaica and it has a few hostels to stay. You can also go to Vicuña 15’ minutes away from the spot for a nice dinner or to find supplies at a supermarket. You can also visit several observatories like Mamalluca staying at Campo de Cielo Mamalluca, this area has such a dry atmosphere that is perfect for stars gazing. Another option is to go to Pisco Elqui and try our booze there, all this if you manage to stop kiting in this amazing place!!!! All the area has a lot of quartz in the land which is a mood lifter!!!!
