Alison's pousada review
Kite Brazil was definitely a surprise. A very pleasant surprise but a surprise none the less. First of all TripAdvisor has it down as the no 1 hotel in Jericoacoara, a completly different town 12 kms away, and secondly it is classified as a hotel when this is very much a pousada with individual bungalows, communal breakfasts and laid back friendly vibe. What Austrian/Italian hosts Hacky and Dani have done here is to create a kitesurfers' paradise and at the same time a place where anyone who appreciates nature and tranquility can chill out in total peace.
There are 6 spacious wooden bungalows at Kite Brazil, all beautifully appointed with excellent shower rooms all designed to make the most of local materials and artesanato. Colourful throws on the beds and shelves made out of old kite boards mix with polished concrete floors and inlaid old portuguese tiling to give a totally unique eclectic feel to the living space which is completed with wrap around varanda, recliner and (of course) a hammock for those long siestas.
There's no airconditioning here, no TV and your phone won't work, but you've got a great pool with loads of sun loungers, the beach on your doorstep and highspeed wi-fi internet if you really can't do without your fix. I rather wish they hadn't had the latter so I could have had an excuse to chill out just listening to the sound of the waves. But either way this place is totally special- a real hidden paradise!
Praia do Preá is 294kms. from Fortaleza in one direction and around 12kms. (or 20 minute buggy ride) from Jericoacoara in the other and light years away from both in terms of landscape and feel. A few houses, a couple of small shops, a few pousadas, a few beach bars and a kite school are all that exist here apart from a beach which just seems to go on forever. Transport here is normally by buggy, quadbike or 4x4 truck and nearly all the "roads" are pure sand, including the "main road" to Jericoacoara seen in the picture here. A great place to chill out and do nothing, and an even better place if you are into kite surfing.

you don't like dogs, or want any kind of choice of restaurants/nightlife on the doorstep. This place is quiet!
