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 […]

Where to stay in Icaraizinho: Villa Mango

From Jericoacoara it is about a 2 hour drive to Icaraizinho, another small fishing village famous for kite surfing. When I say very small, I mean you won’t see many other people for miles as it is very remote.  We stayed at Villa Mango, a charming hotel that completely integrates you with the beauty of […]

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 […]

Best restaurant in Jericoacoara: Tamarindo

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 […]
