Day trip to Cumbuco Beach from Fortaleza
Buggy tour, ski-bunda, jet ski, banana boat and horse ride
Board a comfortable vehicle at your hotel or villa in Fortaleza for the 22-mile (35-km) trip to the village of Cumboco. This mellow fishing village is located in the town of Caucaia and is home to mostly empty sugar-white sand beaches lined with coconut palms and wind-stirred dunes.
Try ski-bunda, a sport that involves sand surfing down the shifting dunes into a pond. Opt for a dune buggy ride, rent a banana boat or jet ski or sign up for a horseback riding excursion. With year-round sunshine and a constant breeze, the kite-surfing here is world-class if you're in search of adrenaline boosters.
If adventure isn't what you're after, simply kick back on the beach and relax, or stroll through the swaying coconut palms that line the shore. Before you depart, head to Parnamirim pond for a dip in its cool waters.
At the end of your day in paradise, board your transportation back to your Fortaleza hotel for drop-off.
