Endless Lagoons and our Pousada directly at the Spot
Either flat water, waves or Downwinder. Tatajuba’s got you covered! Furthermore you’ll find comfortable Bungalows, beach houses and Palafitas directly at the Spot.
Tatajuba, a name that awakens the senses! This small, almost forgotten place lays west of Jericoacoara (“Jeri” for short) on the mouth of a river. You’ll find plenty of space, wind and lots of possibilities for kiting. And if you want to party, Jeri, with its laid-back atmosphere and wild nightlife, is not far away and worth at least one trip.
The KiteWorldWide Pousada
The area of the KiteWorldWide Pousada is divided into two sections. The Pousada section is located approximately 100m from the beach. Here you’ll find the pool, the restaurant and the community areas. In the wide palm garden of the Pousada you’ll always find a quiet spot to relax but also likeminded people to chat, if you feel like it.
The beach site area is located right next to the spot. From here you’ll have a little walk to the restaurant, the pool and the community area but therefore you’ll enjoy pure beach feeling and never lose sight of the spot and the wind.
You’ll kick off the day with a lovingly prepared breakfast buffet with homemade bread, freshly squeezed juices, tropical fruits, cake, cold cuts and hot egg dishes of your choice.
Also have board is available optionally, to make sure you have plenty of energy for long sessions on the water.
With the half board option you’ll enjoy a daily changing 3 course menu with beef filet, seafood and/or various pasta dishes. If you’re in South America, also the local BBQ cuisine is not to be missed. Therefore we fire up the BBQ once a week. To make sure you’ll also see something outside of the Pousada, we’ll take you on a weekly trip to our favorite beach restaurant.
In addition to that, the half board includes table water the entire day. At the Pousada and the kite center we’ve set up multiple water dispensers. This way you’ll use less plastic bottles and support the environment protection.
Accommodations at the Pousada Area
The palafitas are a special kind of accommodation. These are wooden buildings on four meter stilts above the ground. As you can imagine, you’ll have an amazing view of the ocean and the river from these three houses. Each contains a king-size double bed, a shower with warm water, minibar and an electronic safe. Additionally there is a sofa and a desk.
Both of the roomy and comfortable bungalows are equipped with a king-size double bed, air conditioner, minibar, electronic safe and a shower with warm water. A real luxury is the private terrace with a hammock from which you have an awesome view into the tropical garden.
The kite houses are all divided into two separate bedrooms and a shared bathroom. The living room can also be used by all occupants. There’s a large, comfortable sofa and a table for game nights. In addition, there is an electronic safe and minibar. From the hammock in front of the house, you’ll have a beautiful view of the river and the garden.
Accommodations at the Beach Area
Beach House / Casa Praia
This lovingly decorated apartment is located directly at the spot with a marvellous view of the lagoon from its great seaside balcony. It is the perfect accommodation for couples or groups equipped with a king size double bed, private kitchen and a comfortable bathroom with hot water shower. Here you can enjoy your kite session break in the hammock comfortalbly swaying in the breeze while watching others kite at one of the best flat water spots Brazil has to offer.
Deluxe Beach Bungalow
The deluxe beach bungalow is the custom carbon kite board amongst bungalows. It provides space for 2-3 people and offers a double bed (+ one optional bed), aircon and wifi. The centerpiece of the bungalow is the open-plan kitchen with an own bar. This might just be the perfect spot to mix an ice cold Caipirinha after long days on the water. Those who don’t wanna miss the sunset, just enjoy a drink on the private sun deck with a stunning view over the lagoon. Furthermore, the bungalow has a spacious en suite bath with warm water shower and a television. However, a better picture than the view you’re having, also the TV can’t provide.
Garden Beach Bungalows
The garden beach bungalow is the smallest accommodation on the beach and ideal for 2 persons. If you like it comfy, you can also live here with 3 people. The garden beach bungalow offers a double bed (+ one optional bed), a kitchenette (without stove), aircon, wifi and an en-suite bathroom with warm water shower. Furthermore, you’ll find a private garden as well as a patio with a hammock.
This really is a kitesurf paradise: one of the best shallow water spots with the most reliable and strongest wind in Brazil. The wind blows constantly from June to the end of February and makes sure that you’ll have nearly endless kitesurf sessions. When the spots around Fortaleza “lose the puff” in December, you’ll still have enough wind in your kite here for another two months. The spot is located right next to your accommodation and on the mouth of a river. Even at high tide you can find enough shallow areas where you still can stand. You’ll have an unimaginable amount of space to cruise around and try out new jumps. A few hundred meters further down the mouth of the river, you’ll have another awesome spot with small “kicker waves” and only four kilometers away from a big sweet-water lagoon.
You’ll find the wave spot just a few 100 meters away from the Pousada, shortly after the river mouth on the ocean side. Here you’ll experience nice kickers in the waves and good wind. A perfect spot for both wave-beginners as well as advanced wave-kitesurfers as the wind has a perfect angel to the waves.
Downwind Tours (Guriu-Tatajuba & Tatajuba-Camocim)
Tatajuba is a perfect start for downwind day tours. The kitesurf school will bring you to Guriu, and guide you on your tour. You can also start directly at Tatajuba direction Camocim. Both downwind tours offer about 15 km with variable wave conditions, everything from one to three meter big waves.
In the farer surroundings of Tatajuba you can find the Secret Spot, with the ultimate kitesurf conditions. In order to keep it a secret, you can get further information when you are here from our kite instructor at the Pousada…
Auf halben Weg zwischen Jeri und Tatajuba ist ein weiterer Weltklasse Spot mit spiegelglattem Wasser. Perfekt für eine Freestyle Session mit anschliessendem Downwinder zurück nach Tatajuba.
Laguna la Torta
The nearby lagoon “Lagoa da Torta” is a much more famous spot with awesome kitesurf conditions. This beautiful sweet-water lagoon with a big standing range of shallow waters, lays in the middle of the dunes and stretches for 16 kilometers into the land. The wind might be less strong and a bit gusty, due to the surrounding dunes. It is, however, perfect for days when the wind is too strong at the coast.
On the beach, there are plenty of coconut palms and a “Barraca”, the Brazilian word for small restaurant on the beach. After a successful day on the water or during a short break, you can relax in a hammock and enjoy a cold coconut.
We also recommend that you try the local cuisine—delicious fish and regional specialties at cheap prices.
This spot is about 4 km away from the pousada and reachable by buggy transfer (at an additional charge).
Tatajuba River Mouth
This spot is right next to our accommodation. It’s a river mouth whose further course ends in the ocean. The entire area is, for the most part, shallow enough to stand in at high tide. At low tide you can just walk to the end of the river mouth and kite in the sea. The wind at this spot is strong and reliable. On really windy days, you can also go to the spot at Laguna La Torta. In spite of the awesome conditions here, there are never very many kiters around.
There’s a kitesurfing school directly at the spot with courses for beginners and advanced riders as well as equipment available for rent.
Strandbuggy & Sandboarding
If you need a little change from water and kiting, you speed through the enormous dunes in Funil with a beach buggy. Taking it to the extreme would be to try out the sand boarding in the dunes.
Wellness & Yoga
In the KiteWorldWide Pousada they offer yoga classes and you can book massages on site.
Excursions to both cities of Jericoacoara and Camocim
Tatajuba is located between the city well known to kite and windsurfers, Jericoacoara (30 km) and the fishing community, Camocim (25 km). You can reach each one of these places either by public transportation or with the beach buggy.
Jericoacoara, or ‘Jeri’ as insiders name it, is known for its relaxed atmosphere and wild nightlife. The night really gets going around midnight, and everyone who can keep going longer can party all night long.
Although Jeri only consists of four sandy streets, there is an astonishing number of restaurants, pousadas, and small, interesting shops.
Active vacationers have the chance to let some steam off in Jeri. Apart from kitesurfing, you can learn the popular Brazilian battle dance, Capoeira, on the beach, go sand boarding in the dunes or try your luck on the back of a horse.
Camocim is located on the mouth of the Rio Coreaú on the border of the “Land of endless possibilities”, Piaui. Here you’ll find post offices, banks, hospitals, shops, a bus station and lots of different hotels and pousadas. The market and village life are definitely worth a visit!
