Jericoacoara is the newest fashion beach among travelers and some Brazilian hippies.
It is located in the faraway and wild coast of Ceara, north-west of Fortaleza.
This small fishing village is home to palm trees which are sunken in sand dunes in front of the jangadas (sailing ships) docked at the wide beach gray.
Around its sandy streets there are pigs, goats, sheep, horses, donkeys and dogs wandering aimlessly. Every night is organized a forro where you can enjoy the dance.
You can also do other activities such as: climbing the dunes, take a ride on jangaday, walk up to Pedra Furada, a rock located 3 km east along the coastline, or hire a horse and get to Mangue Seco, a smaller village, 18 km west along the beach.
