Visitor Reviews of Icarai


Gérard Jean-Montcler from FRANCE writes:

Excellent site de kite, vent assuré tous les jours de septembre à janvier entre 20 et 30 nœuds (thermique l'après-midi : ajouter 5 nœuds) sur un plan d'eau "un peu" agité - pas adapté pour les débutants qui choisiront la fin de marée basse et le début de marée haute pour avoir une surface plus calme ou aller à "Secret spot" en buggy (15 R € par personne, donc 30 R$ aller-retour) ou passer la journée à Patos (à 30 km : 255 R$ pour 3 - soit 85 R$/pers aller et retour). Y aller au moins une fois, dépaysement garanti (passage de dunes, bac pour traverser de la rivière, piste et traversée de petits villages, excellent et copieux repas à midi sur place à 18 R$) et très bonnes conditions de kite !

Le spot de kite : il faut aller sur le spot (à gauche de la baie le centre est déventé et/ou turbulent) au club chez Alan - c'est un français - (stockage, gonflage avec compresseur et, surtout, possibilité d'un très bon repas à midi autour de 18 R$).

Ne pas oublier que cette région fait partie des territoires où la dengue est endémique (voir Wikipedia). Donc prévoir "anti-moustiques" et vérifier l'état des moustiquaires !
Transports avec chauffeur : toujours "négocier" et bien s'entendre AVANT LE DEPART (prix par personne ? pour le véhicule ? aller et retour ? etc. ?). Cela peut varier du simple au double !
Depuis la France, privilégier le vol Lisbonne-Fortaleza et ne pas faire le change dans l'aéroport (taxes désavantageux et taux de change ; par exemple : 2,08 au lieu de 3,05 en décembre 2014) mais aux distributeurs des banques avec votre carte bancaire. Si vous avez commandé un taxi (par l'intermédiaire de la pousada - 300 R$ le trajet de 3 heures ; pas par personne !), le chauffeur, que vous payez arrivé à destination, peut vous conduire au distributeur en passant. Prévoir l'argent liquide pour le séjour + le prix du taxi retour.
