Tips and Facts
June - February is our windy and high season. Within this time there are months which are really buzzing or rather less busy. If you like it more quiet and relaxed you should come in our windy but quiet months which are the months June, September, October and mid Dezember until February. In case you prefer a more busy season then it would be July, August, and from the end of October until mid December.
February - May is our raining season where the wind drops and it can rain all day long. In this time our guesthouse will be closed.
May & June is our lower season (7-10 meter kite). It's when the raining season has finished and the wind is coming back but it's still less windy than in high season. It's quiet in Ilha do Guajiru and it's the perfect time if you enjoy a very quiet place but with a social atmosphere.
