It is important to plan vacations in the North and Northeast regions, always considering the weather and knowing the tide tables in the place you are going to visit.

Discover Maragogi at recommended times
So, there's one more important thing you need to know about Maragogi. Between April and August, the region tends to have a lot of rain and this can negatively affect your trip, especially the color of the water, which tends to become more cloudy and difficult to see.
If you intend to dive, it is important to take this into account. If you're looking for tranquility, it's best to avoid visiting the beach in December, January and February, which are vacation months and high season.
At this time, the beach is usually crowded, the tours are disputed and the prices of hotels, inns and resorts tend to be higher.
The low season, which runs from September to November, is ideal for those looking for peace and quieter walks with fewer people.
And another important tip: before taking any tour, especially those involving galleys and natural pools, check the tides to be sure of the time when the water will rise.
Do not continue on the tour if the tide is rising, or if you notice any change in weather.

When the tide is low, the most agitated water in the sea moves away from the edge, and stretches of natural pools form or areas of sand appear, between one strip of water and another.
