Much of the north-eastern coast in the dry season (June-February) is caressed from the trade winds that makes Praia da Barra one of the best spots in the world for kite surfing. Also, thanks to the steady wind, the temperatures are not so overwhelming, you are able to suntan without suffering too much heat
We always suggest wearing a light longsleeve jersey in the evenings , the cool air allows for real good night sleep .
Another BIG PLUS of this season is that there are NO mosquitoes
Of course Kitesurfing is the main addiction here , but if you feel like doing something else .. you can go explore on foot , on horseback or by boat .
