Best restaurant in Jericoacoara: Tamarindo

There are many great restaurants in Jeri but I must say Restaurant Tamarindo is the best.  Located right next to the main square and situated under the shadow of a giant tamarind tree you are in for a magical evening.  The outdoor garden area is lovely and since the floor is made of sand I guarantee you will […]
