Are you looking for a very special place on earth, far away from squeaking brakes, blowing horns and everlasting traffic jams? Then Jericoacoara is just the place for you.
Jeri is a place with sandy streets and never ending beaches at its shores. Once you are there, time has no relevance, leaving you no choice but to relax.
Twenty years ago, this fishing village had no electricity, telephones, TV’s nor newspapers. Even money was barely used. You can still feel this relaxed atmosphere and it is what makes Jeri, Jeri, as the locals call it, a place you will fall in love with. A typical phenomenon is; you always wish you could stay a little longer.
Let the surprising amount of restaurants and lovingly furnished pousadas enchant you. The small village offers – despite its humble size; a great variety of activities. With your feet in the sand you can learn how to perform the Brazilian “combat dance” called Capoeira, go sandboarding in the dunes or try horseback riding along the coast. Around midnight you can check out the amazing nightlife until dawn (if you last)… it’s one of the things Jeri’s’ residents know how to do very well! You shouldn’t miss out on the Brazilian way of life and their feeling for rhythm! Just do it like the locals and make a ‘siesta’ after an exhausting kite session to be ready for the party at night.
Of course, kitesurfing is an outstanding experience in Jeri. The wind along the main beach is a little gusty, but if you keep going a few hundred meters, behind the big dune, you will be able to enjoy some nice sessions. Five km further downwind the real sweet stuff is happening. At the river mouth of Guriú you will find legendary butter flat water. The beaches here stretch for miles and miles with a super steady side on shore wind, leaving you crazily satisfied after each session ;-)
After these exciting kite sessions and the wild party nights, you really deserve some relaxation. That’s why we chose a wonderful pousada, the “Vila Kalango” for you. A place you won’t forget.
For those of you, who still have some energy left for more legendary kite sessions, we recommend you head over to our pousada in Tatajuba, another legendary spot just past Guriu (you can actually take a downwinder there). The trip is absolutely worth it!
