Jericoacoara or “Jeri” as the locals call it, is a Brazilian village on the coast of Ceará State. Jeri is well known for its beautiful beaches and sand dunes, the hammocks that are set over the lagoons, the perfect weather conditions for kitesurfing and windsurfing, nice restaurants and the fun nightlife.
In this article you will find out where is Jericoacoara, when is the best time to visit, what to do there, where to stay, for how long, what to bring for this trip, and will get exclusive responsible tourism tips =)
When is the best time to visit Jericoacoara?
There is no bad time to go to Jeri but we recommend from July to December since it is less likely to rain and there is a good wind to practice kitesurfing and windsurfing.
In combination of weather and good prices, we suggest between September and November.
Find the seasons below:
High season: January, July, August, December, and Brazil’s public holidays.
Low season: February, March, April, May, June, September, October and November, expect on public holidays and when there is a kitesurfing championship.
Wet season: From January till June, and it usually rains more in March and April. From March to May the hotel rates are lower.
Wind season: From July till January. Historically August has the strongest wind.
Temperature: The average temperature is about 35°C during summer and 22°C during winter.
Some people say 2 minimum, I would say the minimum of 4 being 7 more ideal as there is a lot to do and it is not super easy to get there.
In my case I supposed to stay there for 5 days and ended up staying for 13 days between Jericoacoara and Preá. This because I wanted to take all the tours and to have time to really disconnect.
