Ceara Buggy Safari

This 8-day dune and beaches buggy safari along endless stretches of sandy beaches is an unforgettable experience that will give you a flavour of Ceara’s coastline in Brazil. Starting in Fortaleza, the tour heads towards the north-west, all the way to Jericoacoara National Park. If you are looking for a mix of calm deserted beaches, this trip is for you. Stop in Taíba with its long peaceful beaches, then move to the idyllic Trairi, known for its picturesque white sands. Arrive in the castaway village of Jericoacoara with its vibrant nightlife and laid-back vibe. Discover picturesque dunes, crystalline lagoons, lazy fishing villages, rivers, palm groves and a community of wave-riders. This is an off-road adventure trip which would be a great choice for active travellers, including kitesurfers and surfers, who want to move along different beaches and practice watersports. The itinerary can be adjusted and changed in many ways. Stay in charming beach villas and indulge in the relaxed beach lifestyle of the Brazil’s north-east.
