On the outskirts of Fortaleza, about 25 km north of the capital, in the state of Ceara in northeastern Brazil beautiful, there is a small seaside town, situated in the district of Caucaia called Cumbuco. Originally it was just a small fishing village, but for about 10 years now has become the Mecca of kitesurfing.
The center of Cumbuco is surely a reflection of Brazil. The peculiarity of this village is the square where you will find all the evening people eating street-food or maybe you soffermerete admiring fleets of kids of all ages playing soccer in the pitch made next to the church of S.Pedro.
In low season, roughly from March to May, excluding weekends but especially on Sunday, you will find a few people. Lost in this huge beach, wild, free, from almost white sand, you will most certainly at this time, at home, free to lounge under a palm tree or sit and admire the ocean from one of the various "barrachas", sipping water coconut or a cold beer ...

As an alternative to the relaxation of the beach, in the off season as in the rest of the year, you can take a hike in "jangada", typical boats that the local fishermen use it daily for work or for tourism. The jangada is a boat particularly of northern Brazil, with a flat keel which resembles a raft and sail a uniquely shaped and various colors.
Another alternative are the nice excursions with buggies, special vehicles, also from various customizations, suitable for trips to the beach or the dunes, where you can see maybe the sunset from a striking position or perhaps take a tour of the area and learn scenarios of rare natural beauty.
I remember that there is the possibility to swim in the lagoons of rainwater, located in the dunes, or maybe launch with skibunda from the top of a dune, with this wooden board, which may or may ride or simply used as in snowboarding. At the end of the descent you can choose to end your run directly in Lagoa or descend safely dry.
Last but not least, there are horse riding, certainly of particular interest and is very impressive. A few kilometers from the beach to the north, we have the reserves natural freshwater Cauipe, Lagoa do Banana, Agua Crystalline and further south the Lagoa Tabuba
