A brief history about Jericoacoara
Until about the end of the 20th century, Jericoacoara was still a secluded and simple fishing village. There were no roads, no electricity, no phones, no TVs, no newspapers, and money was rarely used. In 1984, the "Washington Post Magazine" named Jericoacoara as one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. Since then, the area around Jericoacoara was declared Environmental Protection Area (APA) and became a National Park in 2002.
