Monkeys and parrots make the party of the tourists who stop to refresh themselves with cold drinks served in the shade of the tents.

    In Lago Grande we will delight ourselves with the little nets in the water. It is also possible to see the curious “live menu” of Didi’s restaurant. The second ferry crossing will take place at Guriú beach, with its green water channel and the mangrove tree graveyard (the points visited on this route are subject to natural conditions and tidal variation, and changes may be made as previously informed by our team).
    We will follow the seaside until Jericoacoara in time to enjoy the sunset on the famous dune with the same name, a daily ritual for the local residents and visitors. The overnight stay in Jericoacoara will give us a chance to enjoy the nightlife of the village, its restaurants, stores and bars.
  • DAY 8 – Jericoacoara

  • DAY 9 – Jericoacoara / Fortaleza

    In the option for the beaches, we will leave in a 4×4 on trails by the sea until Praia do Preá, from where approximately 14 km later on secondary roads we will reach the paved road.
    We will pass through several small towns like Acaraú and Itarema until we reach the beaches of Icaraí da Amontada, Apiques, Caetano, Baleia, Mundaú, where we will cross the ferryboat that will take us to Guajiru Beach.
    We will continue our adventure by the sea visiting the Trairi bar, which we will cross by ferryboat, and the beautiful beach of Lagoinha, Ceará’s postcard.
    Soon after we will follow by asphalt to the beaches of Cumbuco and Icaraí, already in the metropolitan area of Fortaleza. Transfer to the airport. During all this coastal stretch the blue sea, the dunes, and the coconut trees will guide us through small fishing villages interspersed with sophisticated beaches and their luxurious constructions, in an exciting landscape that is typical of the Ceará coast. This day can suffer alterations in the route and in the stop times for photos, bath and lunch due to the tide table.
