We spent a week or so of our time on the coast was spent at Paracuru. We stayed at another great Pousada just off the main square called Vila Verde.It was cheap and lived up to the name by having loads of trees and plants around. Without a doubt this was the best breakfast in north east Brazil. Delicious juice and baked stuff, fruit, eggs and all sorts.

There's also a great Cafe on the corner of the square called something like Cooperativa. Head for the pastels and arabic bread sandwiches, which were nothing short of amazing and really cheap. The Churrascaria on the square is awesome as well for meaty treats.

After nearly four months solid, we were very much winding down on the kitesurfing front during the last week, and turned attentions to the sometimes bizarre costumes sported by fellow kiters.

We liked Paracuru a lot more than Cumbuco as a town. It wasn't quite as touristy and busy and it felt a lot more like a real Brazilian town. The surfing there is excellent as well, with 4 point breaks in a row in front of the town, sheltered from the wind. I would go back for the food alone.
