Wondering if Jeri or Icarai is best for your holiday?
The true answer: BOTH. Two vacations in one…
A COMBO trip makes it all possible. It depends on what you are looking for. The COMBO vacation is the new possibility to combine two windsurfing paradises in the same holiday… And not just some random spots, the windiest and most beautiful beaches in Brazil: Icaraizinho and Jericoacoara. This innovative idea was developed to give windsurfers the opportunity to enjoy these two unique destinations that are only 100km apart. And since Brazil is not a short flight away, and is such an exotic and interesting country to explore, the COMBO vacation adds a lot of value to your journey. More than two world class spots, in the COMBO program you will experience two different beach atmospheres, sailing conditions, landscapes and cultural elements, connected by an exciting buggy adventure along desert beaches, mangroves, crossing rivers and small authentic Brazilian villages.
If seeking out a quiet restive vacation, where you have a lot of space in and out of the water, where you want to disconnect from the world and even your cell phone doesn’t work, then Icaraizinho is your place. But if you are looking for meeting people, sailing in more challenging conditions, partying and enjoying more evolved services, then go to Jeri.
The vast majority of us, when taking a vacation, will want a bit of both: some days you just want to be alone or with your loved one in a quiet place, sailing in more mellow conditions, and some other you will want to take a beat from the waves, make ten new friends, and party like a dog till sunrise. And since Brazil is not a short flight and is an exotic and exclusive trip for most people, it makes no sense to not enjoy two great unique destinations which are only 100kms apart. The true answer to this question is: visit both.
COMBO MENU: Which COMBO is right for you?
Of course you can choose which place to visit first. There are no rules on where to go, for how long etc. Customize your own vacation withVela! There are many ways to combine Jeri and Icaraizinho on the same trip:
If Jeri is a bit challenging for your skills and you want a warm up before getting there, start with Icaraizinho.
If you are looking forward to some strong conditions and party as soon as you arrive, and you prefer to relax on your last days and have a shorter road transfer on your way home, Start with Jeri.
If you want high standard hotels, and to meet a lot of people, stay longer in Jeri.
If you want tranquility, easier sailing, wide spaces, and no cell phone ringing, stay longer in Icaraizinho.
COMBO TRANSFER: Buggy adventure
The most exciting way to reach your second paradise is to use the most common vehicle used to navigate Brazil’s sand covered streets: dune buggies! Travelling on the beach most of the time, crossing rivers in small rafts, and weaving your way through several small fishermen villages, where you can still watch the authenticity of the local life. There are some particular places recommended to visit along the way, such as the sea-turtle conservation base from TAMAR in the town of Almofala, or the small native Indian communities.
Keep in mind: this is a half-day buggy trip and we guarantee you an unforgettable adventure, with a deep immersion in the Brazilian native culture. But, if you prefer to skip the buggy adventure and reach your second paradise in a fast and comfortable vehicle with A/C via the normal roads, we can do that do!
COMBO DEAL: Two places, one contract, one price
The best part is that it won’t effect your time on the water or create any hassle, as Vela takes care of everything from transfer to hotels. You won’t even have to worry about board/sail rental, as your pre-booked rental contract follows you where ever you go. This means that you will not have to start a new rental in the second stop, but continue for a long rental period which in the end gets cheaper for you.
