Jericoacoara or 'Jeri' to the cool kids, is a small fishing village turned hippie Mecca in Ceará, North East of Brazil.

What else would you like to know?

A combination of being hard to reach, only getting electricity (and roads) ~30 years ago and being declared an Environmental Protection Area has resulted in the area remaining preserved to welcome new visitors.

A destination described as magical by those who have been definitely entices our curiosity. Then add to that it is one of the few places on earth where you can witness an Emerald Sunset and now you have us completely enveloped in temptation.

An ‘Emerald Sunset’ is when the tip of the sun turns bright green for the final instant before setting below the horizon...don't worry, we didn't know that was a thing either.

There's few street signs so use landmarks to get around, by foot is the best way to get around. ProTip: wear shoes at night and bring a torch - there is no street lamps. [Review by nikodonnell]
