Jericoacoara

By Ernest White, February 2013

No reviews, be the first!

One of the most popular “in-crowd” beaches in the world with one of the most difficult-to-pronounce names, Jericoacoara (jerry-kwa-KWA-ra)—b.k.a. Jeri—is a little slice of paradise on the northern coast of Brazil. This tiny, isolated fishing village about 190 miles northwest of Fortaleza, with spectacular beaches and soaring sand dunes, has been a backpacking hotspot since it first appeared on the Washington Post’s best beaches list back in 1984. Since then, the tourist offerings have blossomed to include dune buggy rides and adventure sports activities, but the rabble remains tempered by the government’s establishment of a 20-acre national park in the area in 2002, keeping the exotic, remote nature of the area intact.
