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.
