Got back from Playa last month kiteboarding and I'm looking for my next trip

heading to SOUth padre Island in April thinking 15th to the 22nd but haven't booked my tickets yet.

Heading with down with the wife and a friend. Maybe a couple of others...

best way to get there? South West flies super cheap flights to Harlingen, is there any other place that flies into there other than Houston?

Also, anyone have a heads up on a place to rent for a week? We'd like a house that's ocean front or right next to the ocean. SOmething that sleeps 10ish.
Thanks in advance

Dallas is the cheaper route. SW does harlingen cheap, and American does McAllen on the cheap on occasion. SW will also do brownsville cheap, jsut have to watch the sites.

April is gonna be a premium to get a house if you can even find one. It is THE spring break destination for all of the south. SPI is fun to hit Jan-Mar as it is a ghost town, mid 70's, windy, and can wear trunks.

like i said in my email. getting from houston to harlingen was cheap on South West. The issue was flying from Calgary to Houston, cheapest flight was around 800 bucks round trip.

I booked Cuba whilch looks amazing. Basically 1400 bucks a person all in during our spring break which is pretty cheap for sure.

if you search Caya guillermo is a small island off the mainland of Cuba where the cubans build a 20 km land bridge to get to. Very secluded with about 5 resorts on the island. We are staying at the Sol caya Guillermo where we can kite right off the beach 30 seconds from our room. A bunch of the people i went to mexico with in December were there last year. Crystal clear waters knee to waist deep for 2 miles till you get to the reef.

Can`t wait if anyone is interested there will be 4-5 kiters going for sure March 30- arpil 6th.
