Welcome to Jericoacoara
After a good journey with no problems at the airport with the luggage i arrived finally in Jericoacoara.
I flew with TAP from Hamburg over Lisbon to Fortaleza.
The trip with the 4×4 Jeep to Jeri was quite exciting. (took 4 hours) A lot of animals crossed the street and the last 20 Km we were driving at the beach. You can only reach Jeri over the beach. They don´t have normal streets with asphalt, only sand, sand and sand.
I stayed a few nights at one of the approx. 130 Pousadas here in Jeri. Then i moved to my flat a bit outside from the centrum. It´s a cool small flat with my own terrace and hangmat.
A walk to the centrum take me about 5 Minutes. Jeri is defiantly a holiday village. The prices a higher than i expected. Anyhow, a good meal at one of the cheaper restaurants cost only 3 Euro. A Caipi 2,50 Euro.
I met already some really cool guys from all over the world.
The wind is really blowing every day with approx. 20 – 25 Knots in the middle. Sometimes a bit more or less.
I also did some good downwinders. In Jeri, there is not really a good kiting spot. The only one is at the Club Ventos an there are only Windsurfers. It´s also a bit offshore there.
But i had already a good session behind the big dune. It´s side-offshore here but with flat water and a small wave. The only negative is the gusty wind.
The most of the times i´m in Preá. It´s a place 20 Minutes upwind with the car from Jeri. Here you have some good conditions, a bit choppy but still nice. (like the north sea) At lowtide the waves are small and it´s good for some freestyle practising. When it´s hightide the waves can be big and that´s a good time for a downwinder to Jeri with the surfboard. (10 Km)
Brazil is really beautiful. All the people are so nice and always friendly.
A really good place to relax.
