The isolated, palm-lined beach paradise of Jericoacoara may only be reached by driving through miles of soft sand. When you arrive, you'll discover miles of deserted beaches and coconut trees surrounding this small village of fishermen. You have to get there by four-wheel drive, but its remoteness only adds to its tranquility. Here, you can hike, ride horseback or even go windsurfing to your heart's content. After the unforgettable sunset, the streets of the town are illuminated by only the moon and the stars. There's no place else like it in the world.

 Detailed itinerary
 

 Day 1
 - Depart your home town - Fortaleza - At leisure
Departure from your home town to Fortaleza, Brazil. After the flight arrives at night in Fortaleza, we will be met at the airport and be transferred to our beachfront hotel where we check in and have time to rest.


 Day 2  - Fortaleza - Day at leisure - Optional excursions
Enjoy a free day in Fortaleza. The city of Fortaleza is an active center of commerce and fishing in Brazil's northeastern state of Cearį. Although it was not colonized until the early 1600s, Portuguese explorers landed here in 1500. The Dutch established a stronghold with the construction of Schoonenborch fortress, but control of the settlement at Fortaleza teetered between the Portuguese, Indians and Dutch several times in the 1600s. The town later became a trading post for cattle farms that were established in Cearį§³ interior. Nowadays, Fortaleza is used as a jumping-off point for many serene palm-lined beaches that the northeast is known for. The lively Praia da Iracema and Praia do Meireles are excellent choices for going out; the beaches in Fortaleza are known more for their nightlife than for soaking up sun and surf. Overnight at Othon Imperial.


 Day 3  - Fortaleza - Jericoacoara
We will make the all-day journey to one of the most pristine beaches in world. Our day will be one of pure fun and adventure as we make selected stops along the way. Known as one of the world's best beaches, rustic Jericoacoara is as beautiful as it gets. Since 1984, the area was declared protected in order to preserve its environmental integrity. The beaches, palm trees, dunes, reefs and rocky outcroppings are truly a sight to behold. Jericoacoara, or Jeri, as it is sometimes called, takes its peculiar name from the Tupi-Guarani words yuruco (hole) and cuara (turtle), referring to the sea turtles' egg-laying on the beaches.
