if you're considering barbados why not go to maui? shorter, direct flights. better wind and equipment. plenty of accommodation and dining choices to fit anyone's tastes. and you'll still be citizens.

in baja los barriles is probably preferable for the reasons mentioned in other posts. it's much more of an established pueblo than la ventana and almost everything is within walking distance.

You are probably right. We both really enjoy Maui. I just wanted to try somewhere else. I'll probably go to Maui with the wife and plan a guys trip to Los B.

I went to La Ventana with my non-windsurfing wife, and we had a great time. Things to do (for cheap in LV):
1. Take spanish lessons!
2. Yoga classes
3. go SUP in the morning before the wind cranks up
4. running! lots and lots of running trails
5. mtn. biking
6. snorkeling
7. lying on the beach and reading a book

Los Barriles, Vela, is great place to start with non-Windsurfers, for all the above mentioned reasons. I can add the following attractions:
- Hike to the waterfall at Sierra La Laguna.
- My favourite: grab a bike and some snorkel gear and ride up to Punta Pescadero for some great snorkeling on the small reef at the point. Fantastic: same fish as in Cabo Pulmo, beautiful secluded beach... Love it. Go early when the water is calm.

Yes, he does indeed! Leo is also very good. Their Baja Margarita, including the secret ingredient Damiana, is always a special part of our trip.
