Often known simply as ‘Jeri’, Jericoacoara magnetises travellers with its appealing combination of blissful isolation, stunning coastal scenery, enjoyable activities (most notably windsurfing, surfing and kitesurfing), good-value pousadas and restaurants, and nightlife. The village’s six sandy streets are wedged between a broad beach, a series of grassy hills and the majestic Pôr do Sol (Sunset) dune. It is an easy place to make new friends and many people end up staying longer than they planned. The high season runs from July to January and it is advisable to make a room reservation during those months, as accommodations book up quickly.

Jeri is the start (or end) point of the Rota das Emoções (Route of Emotions) leading all the way to the Lençóis Maranhenses and Atins.

Here are links to two useful portals that provide comprehensive information on Jeri, its pousadas, restaurants, Windsurf- and Kiteboard schools, etc:
