The North East Brazil region
The Northeastern states of Alagoas, Bahia, Ceará, Maranhão, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piaui, Rio Grande do Norte and Sergipe are different from the rest of Brazil. The population is more heavily African and mestizo, the cuisine is spicier, the weather hot and dry. The barren areas called sertão are more desert-like than tropical since they get rain for only a short time each year.
The states border the Atlantic and boast excellent beaches. They extend inland for varying distances, from a narrow coastal plain, where sugar cane once was the main crop, into semi-arid region which the Brazilian government is trying to reclaim much of the semiarid hinterland whose characteristic landscape is the caatinga, or thorny scrub forest. The chief occupation of the region is stock raising. The sertão area, in the “polygon of drought,” has suffered periodic droughts and caused large-scale migrations to the Amazon basin and to country's cities.
Official reclamation activities have spurred the construction of numerous dams and hydroelectric projects, especially on the São Francisco River. In the 1960s a successful extensive regional economic development program to address social unrest and counter-effect its harsh and picturesque history, peopled by leather-garbed cowboys, bandits (cangaceiros), and religious fanatics. Development of tourism is a concerted, on-going effort.
With the exception of Bahia, most of the northeastern states aren't as well known or visited as some other areas of Brazil, yet here the visitor will find splendid, uncrowded beaches, rest and relaxation, plus a wealth of things to do and see. You may travel inexpensively, eating cheaply and bargaining for room rates, or you may go upscale all the way.
Most of the northeast is not as developed as other parts of the country, so travel may be both an adventure and more than just a means of getting there. Cruise ships call in at several ports. Travel by air is common, but not inexpensive. In towns, if you are feeling very brave and don't mind getting lost, you can take a bus. Several cities have subway systems. You can also hop aboard a motorcycle taxi and experience something different. Along the beaches you can rent dune buggies or horses.
Jericoacoara is a small fishing village windsurf and kitesurf mecca in Ceará, Brazil, around 300 km west of Fortaleza. Jeri, as it is affectionately known, is the kind of idyllic place where many travelers end up deciding to stay for longer than they had originally planned.
Jericoacoara is a place removed from the hurried modern world of screeching sirens, maniac deadlines, traffic jams and endless lineups. A place where streets are paved with sand, where beaches stretch as far as the eye can see and where warm water marries with palm swaying breezes. Until about 20 years ago, Jericoacoara was still a secluded and simple fishing village. There were no roads, no electricity, no phones, no TV's, no newspapers, and money was rarely used.
Since 1984, the area around Jericoacoara was declared Environmental Protection Area (APA) and became a National Park in 2002. This brought many building restrictions and tourism controls what help to preserve the area. Electricity arrived in the village and today, hot showers and air conditioning are no longer luxury articles. However, illumination of the streets is forbidden by local law.
Prea is just 12 km from the center of Jericoacoara, is the main gateway to reach the Jeri center town.
Prea is a quiet village, is 280 km from Fortaleza way to Jericoacoara National Park. Arriving in Prea is a fantastic experience, from its openness and regional cuisine. Prea is an ecological paradise bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, began its tourism activity in 1999 with the arrival of kitesurfers looking for a favorable winds.
Visitors who is arriving in Prea Beach got winds 30-40 knots, during a big time of the year (july to december)
Besides the kitesurfing condition, the beautiful beach itself offers a pleasant environment in which you can make eco-tour walking by foot or by horse untill Jericoacoara National Park. The village has tents and bar, till the simplest to the more structured, with many splendid locations along the beach with direct access to it.
Tourist activity in Prea is slowly growing day by day and being structured to receive tourists from various countries and Brazil.
Prea Beach has so wide space for kitesurfing and there is a lot of kitespot at the beach. Prea is surrounded by several natural attractions, such as lagoons, coconut palms and mangroves. Considered as the main beach for sports activities, and it's the official beach for Kitesurfing, Prea does not offer a lively nightlife, but it provides a familiar environment with the nature of Jericoacoara National Park.
There are many options for leisure and culture. In business or pleasure, you'll definitely want to return often to enjoy.
The sky and the stars are happy to see the magnitude of Prea Beach being celebrated and coveted each day of the year for people who simply do not experience such unspeakable moments in life. During full moon, the moon approaches the visitors to wish welcome. Even in the darkest moments, you see a star, smiling in heaven.
Here in Prea everything fits. Imagine the moon rising between coconut palms and brings the act of divine harmony and only those who have an open heart can perceive this beauty. If all this were not enough gift, still has a nice breeze and a wind to die for. Happy those who enjoy this paradise blessed and those returning to the endless moment of joy and happiness of being once more in the famous beach of Prea.
Discover this paradise and reap the good fruits that that destiny gives you.

We are sorry for the issue you had during the check-in but we are happy you like the experience and the house above all.
Regarding the buggy drivers you may be right that's why we always recommend to use Lucas'Buggy (see Lucas contact in the house guide or on the house website) ; he is cheap and a very honest guy . We also offer the possibility to rent a buggy during your stay if you wish so. Again, thank you for your positive comments and welcome back anytime @ Casa Estrela Do Mar ! Kind Regards

We spent there 6 days that made us feel like we were at home in a 5 stars hotels.
The house is just magnificent with sea view, perfect location on the windy Prea beach (ideal for kitesurfing). Really well designed, it's orientation prevents the living space to be windy even if in open air and in addition we enjoyed the great service put in place by the owner: daily tasty breakfast & cleaning performed by Ilia, Kemuel finding ASAP solutions to all our needs (transfers, buggy rental, downwind organization).
Our stay was beyond expectations in Casa Estrella Do Mar!
