When Do You Want To Go?

Jericoacoara is a little slice of paradise on the North coast of Brazil, where the streets are paved with sand and there are jaw-dropping beaches as far as the eye can see.  

Until 1984 it was just a small fishing village with no electricity, no phones, no TV and no road in or out. Almost as soon as progress started, it was slowed by being declared an Environmental Protection Area, meaning there were building restrictions and tourism limits to try and preserve the natural balance.  Nowadays electricity is at least present, although there is still no paved road into the town. 

But what keeps Jericoacoara (or ‘Jeri’; even Brazilians struggle to pronounce the name sometimes) special is its remoteness. The nearest city (and also the nearest airport) is Fortaleza, around 300 kilometres away.  From Fortaleza you can get a bus to nearby Jijoca, which is the nearest place with paved roads.  Then you transfer onto a 4-wheeled vehicle for the final 45 minutes into Jeri.  The entire journey takes around 5-6 hours.  

There is talk of a new airport opening near Cruz, just 30 kms away.  Whilst this will undoubtably make the journey more convenient, it will also change the town considerably, with more tourists requiring more infrastructure. The time to visit Jeri is now, whilst it still remains relatively unspoiled.

Where to Stay

Naquela Pousada

A quiet and serene property with lush tropical gardens and clean and comfortable chalet-style rooms. Naquela Pousada is not on the beachfront, but this has the advantage of avoiding the noise of tourists that gather round that area. The local staff provide a pleasant service, although English skills can be of a lower standard than in larger chain hotels. We particularly love the outdoor pool area, which is one of the highlights of this zen-like property.

Vila Kalango

This unique beachfront pousada is made up of 24 rooms divided into apartments, bungalow and tree houses. The pousada has been built by rustic, local materials and each room is decorated with handicrafts and local artworks. There is a lovely pool deck with ocean views and sun loungers as well as an open air lounge complete with sofas, hammocks and a sandy floor.

The Chili Beach Hotel

Perhaps one of the most special properties in Northeast Brazil, this exclusive beachfront boutique is a chic oasis with an especially romantic feel.
