Climate


The climate is hot and humid on the coast, tempered by the cool trade winds; but in the more elevated, semi-arid regions it is very hot and dry (often above 35°C, but seldom above 40°C), although the nights are cool. However, in the higher ranges (Serra da Ibiapaba, Serra do Araripe and several less larger highlands) the temperatures are colder and vary from about 14°C to 34°C. The year is divided into a rainy and dry season, the rains beginning in January to March and lasting until June. The dry season, July to December, is sometimes broken by slight showers in September and October, but these are of very slight importance. This environment and temperature attracts many tourists, especially ecotourists. The climate is hot almost all year round. The temperature in the state varies from 22°C to 36°C with the lowest temperatures not being typical in the capital Fortaleza but in the numerous mountains in the state.

Spot conditions:
The beach


The size of the sandy beach is tide depending. With high tide it gets very small but it is huge with low tide. Watch out for sharp shells. click for larger version


The water conditions


The huge main Lagoon with warm shallow water, measuring 4000x400 meters got superflat water and has the nickname: The Flatwatersea. This big lagoon is tide depending, with low tide you can kite on other places closeby. Because of the wind direction you are not kiting on the full lenght of the lagoon but on its width. The watertemperature is 29°C whole year, so you never need a wetsuit.
