Update of Trip from the Original Author
If anyone is interested in this downwinder...nows your chance. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are back again in Cumbuco after 3 weeks in the dusty interior and we are getting stuck into planning this downwinder. We will get a 4x4 this week coming up (16th-21st August) and are heading into Fortaleza to inspect the options this Monday the 16th of August.
Just approximate at the moment but its looking to be no more than R$65 per head per day for just the 4x4 action, not including diesel/ oil. Less with more numbers.
It might be that its not neccessary for all or any of you to do the full downwinder journey as my better half may well be driving support between the various destinations and kiting on arrival...it should save some leg strength!
Anyhow its great to be back in Cumbuco and so far the winds seemed only to have strengthened.
We were very happy to return to our friendly Pousada: ´´Tropical Winds´´ http://www.kitersparadise-cumbuco.com/en/pousada.php
which is run by the lovely Manifred (Manny). We certainly recommend this place for an affordable place with super breakfasts, swimming pool, full kite store and rental and its 1 minute hobbling distance from the beach (more peaceful for sleeping) and the same for sand dunes at the back for your sunset soul searching session after a hard afternoons kiting the waters.
See you out there.
Zach, hope you´re having a good time, now you know where we are!
