Lagoa Paraiso in Jericoacoara, Brazil (Photo Essay)

Welcome to Paradise, Paradise Lagoon to be exact (Lagoa Paraiso means Paradise Lagoon).  The lagoon is part of an extensive set of lagoons that are found in the area near the city of Jericoacoara, Brazil.  I recently traveled through the entire coast trying to visit every beach in between that was worth visiting and this was a pleasant surprise.  I got such a great reaction of the previous picture I decided to do an entire photo essay!

The lagoons are freshwater and can be found via a buggy ride on the beach.  With Brazil becoming a hub for travel and overseas investment I am going to be looking for properties on one of these lakes.  I don’t think that anyone would think twice about buying property here.

View from when we first walked out onto the waters of the lagoon.  We were able to get a waterfront seat and enjoy lunch while we soaked up some sun and also enjoyed the view.

If you see in the distance there is a zip line that you can take from the small hill to the left.  We opted not to take the zip line because you just zip into the water.  We plan on returning when they build a zip line where you can actually jump into the water rather then being strapped to the seat.

Far into the distance there is a resort where you can say and tons of pousadas (family style hostels) that are a great bargain.

Overall it was a great experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat.  Click here for more pictures of the Jericoacoara area and check out the top 5 section for more things to do in Brazil & around world.

I’m planning a trip to Rio de Jianero this coming March. Can you suggest inexpensive lodging that is within reasonable reach to activities and sight-seeing?


Marcello September 11, 2012 at 3:38 pm

Absolutely gorgeous. Adding this slice of “Paradise” to my bucket list!


Lauren August 31, 2012 at 7:14 pm

this looks like I place where I fear ” investment” would equal “spoilage” . It looks so beautiful in it’s natural state….a true getaway!

Some lazy time in a hammock over that clear water, looks delightful. Great photos and looks like a real awesome place!

Hi Mark I always enjoyed reading your blog!! I visited Bangkok in the spring I had a great time and really enjoyed the great food diversity :) Do you Day trade also or just happen to come across this site?


Marcello February 9, 2014 at 11:55 am

I actually do day trade Cliff


Jorge September 1, 2012 at 12:35 pm

Marcello I’m missing your idiomatic videos feat. hot chicks!!


Sally Stretton September 1, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Im sold! This place is beautiful. Laying in a hammock in the water sounds like a dream! I want to go zip lining in Brazil for sure one day. You mentioned you may buy property there, will you rent it out when you are traveling? How are the hostels in Brazil? Price, safety, etc..?

P.S. Awesome pictures!


Marcello September 11, 2012 at 3:31 pm

I was thinking more of a hotel type location Sally.. tourism is only set to grow in Brazil so I would like to have a place here to call home in addition to a place that can make a profit


Callie September 5, 2012 at 11:30 am

I would live here in a second! Beautiful!


Andrea September 9, 2012 at 2:05 pm

Wow, your photos are making me drool, and making me want (NO, NEED!) to go there! Ah, so nice!

amazing! looks like paradise!


Dianna January 8, 2013 at 10:15 pm

Just to correct the title: it’s Paraíso kkk :)
Great photos! Jeri is more known by kitesurfers.
But I believe that the demand for Jeri is increasing by other markets too.


Fakhruddin April 1, 2013 at 1:02 am

Looks brilliant!!


Mensu April 8, 2013 at 12:20 pm

Great pics, it looks amazing. Never been to Brazil , now on my bucket list.


Kate July 28, 2013 at 8:10 pm

What is the ocean life like there? Good for scuba?


Marcello August 2, 2013 at 12:24 pm

Its just a fresh water lagoon so not a lot of fish for snorkeling or scuba but you can definitely find that at nearby beaches


Joel December 4, 2013 at 5:20 am

Great article! I LOVE Jeri! The dune buggy ride to the freshwater lagoons is something not to be missed!
