Cumbuco

The village
Windtown’s location is perfect: it’s located directly on the beach, on a walking distance from the center of Cumbuco, where you can find various shops and a range of national and international restaurants. The airport of Fortaleza is only located 30 kilometers away.

Cumbuco is a remote fishermen’s village in the northeast of Brazil, famous for the perfect conditions for kitesurfing. Just like most Brazilian villages, Cumbuco’s small and cozy center is located around the main square. Although in the last couple of years Cumbuco became a beloved holiday destination for Brazilians as well as for foreign tourists, it’s only crowded in November and around New Year. The rest of the time you’ll find a laidback and tranquil place.

To see and to do
Cumbuco has a beautiful and quiet beach on one side of town and an amazing landscape of looming sand dunes on the other side. Behind the dunes you have astonishing mountains with waterfalls and tropical vegetation. Fortaleza, with a population of almost 3 million the fifth largest city of Brazil, is about 30K away.

Close enough to thrill and far enough to chill!
