Paraiba state has three big geographical zones with different climates and sceneries, the coastal, agreste and sertão zones.
Our coast is renowned for its beautiful sea cliffs, coconut fields and white sandy beaches whose main characteristics are its calm warm waters. One specific characteristic of the sea surrounding our capital city is the absence of big animals like sharks and dolphins, this is due to a reef formation surrounding the whole region making travel by boat a difficult ordeal, but making it the perfect spot to bathers and swimmers.
The agreste region, a transitional zone between the sea and the deserted sertão, is dominated by the Borborema Plateau, a confluence of hills of different sizes and cool climate, the ideal place for people who enjoy a good wine and mountainous landscapes.
The sertão region is located at the great brazilian desert whose main characteristics are its flora, called caatinga, full of beatiful cacti and its climate, hot and dry year round, the perfect conditions for archeological sites, which the region has many.
