Pousada Rancho do Peixe, located on the pristine and somewhat remote northern coast of Brazil, started out as the rustic beachfront getaway of a group of windsurfing enthusiasts. These days, there may be wifi access and fine linens on the beds, but the rugged look and convivial spirit survive — and as in the past, the star attraction is the magnificent natural beauty of Jericoacoara national park. Forget Rio-style beach parties or resort amenities — this is a place for poking a straw into a coconut and falling asleep on a beach blanket.
The pousada consists of sixteen wooden bungalows made entirely out of locally sourced materials. There are thatched roofs and furnishings constructed from rough-hewn wood, as one might expect, but some of the interior design choices are a pleasant surprise. Over here, a wall covered with whimsical floral fabric in eye-popping shades of poppy red and sunshine yellow, over there, wildflower petals strewn across a bedside table. The sand dunes are literally steps away — just make sure to slip on your flip-flops or you might splinter your toe on the native wood staircase.
The airy, relaxed cocktail bar and restaurant specializes in deliciously fresh fruit cocktails and Brazilian-Mediterranean cuisine. Since you’ll find mostly tropical berries and just-caught fish on your plate, you may feel light enough to take a moonlit dip in the large, inviting swimming pool before retiring to the bungalow for the night. Many visitors take their turn windsurfing, kitesurfing, or just plain old surfing — but you’ll feel right at home spending the day in a hammock, as well, if you’d rather.
Please note: Pousada Rancho do Peixe will be closed for maintenance from April 1st to June 6th, 2013
