Photos: Handstands around the Northeast of Brazil

Growing up I was a gymnast, figure skater and dancer (quite the busy after-school and weekend schedule from when I was 4-16 years old).   Since the dunes and beaches in the northeast of Brazil provide such an incredible backdrop I wanted to do something unique while capturing my moment in these special places.  Instead […]

Pedra Furada Jericoacoara

About a 45 minute trek (4 kilometers) from the town center of Jericoacoara (jeri) you will find Pedra Furada (the holed stone) which is considered the postcard of Ceará!  Sculpted by nature through the waves, it is the symbol that characterizes the famous beach, now internationally known as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. […]

Have you crossed the ocean in a car?

In order to make the 3.5 hour drive from Camocim to Jericoacoara (Jeri), you must take a 4×4 across the water, then continue on to an off-roading (on-beaching) adventure and through the dunes. Hop into the truck and head towards the ‘ferry’ spot, FYI I am using the term ‘ferry’ very broadly as you can see below […]

Kite surfing and lunch at Rancho do Peixe

Rancho do Peixe, located on the Preá beach, 12km from Jericoacoara (CE), is under the same ownership as Vila Kalango and situated  in the midst of a 200.000m² coconut tree farm, providing an exotic combination of beaches, dunes, cliffs and coconut trees. Since the resort is about a 30 min drive from the center of […]

There are only two sushi restaurants in Jeri, but if you are craving some raw fish, Kaze Sushi Bar is the place to go! Located on an elegant open air roof terrace that overlooks Jeri; enjoy the fresh breeze, and intimate setting as you look over the extensive and inventive menu.  I’ll be honest, I am […]

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 […]

Where to stay in Jericoacoara: Vila Kalango

Since Jericoacoara (known as Jeri) has become a touristic and popular ‘kite’ village there are lots of hotel options to choose from, but after visiting all of them, I have to say Vila Kalango, is the best!! Not only is the atmosphere and service fantastic but the location is perfectly central and makes anything you want […]

Overview of Jericoacoara

Jericoacoara is one of the most amazing places I have visited in Brazil; the streets are paved with sand (Morro de Sao Paulo style), beaches stretch as far as the eye can see and are lined with delicious restaurants and cute beachy boutiques. Historical fact: Until about 20 years ago, Jericoacoara was still a secluded and […]

Zip lining in Tatajuba (video)

I am a sucker for zip lines; if I am traveling and find out that there is a zip-line near where ever I am staying, I will find a way to include it in our trip.  So… when we arrived in Tatajuba and I spotted something that looked like it could be a zip line […]
