For three weeks in late 2018, AtypicalContent travelled throughout northeast Brazil. We visited, rode, and swam in Fortaleza, Icaraizinho, Jericoacoara, Atins, the
Lencois Maranhenses, and São Luis. Below are some of our pictures and video.
Icarai is a small, quiet, fishing village west of Fortaleza. What it lacks in size it makes up with consistent trade winds and warm waters.
Jeri is a global windsurfing and kiteboarding mecca.

Located in the Preguica River’s estuary, Atins provides great access to the Lencois Maranhenses. It also has great kiteboarding.

The Lencois Maranhenses covers 155,000 hectares, 600 square miles, in northeast Brazil. It’s completely made of white sand and clear blue water and its beauty is difficult to describe.
