Visit the old village of Tatajuba, overtaken by dunes, when you go out on buggy tour from Jericoacoara. Dunes, mangrove and lagoon - magical!

My suggestion:
Don't forget your sunscreen and hat, as you'll be in the sun and wind the entire time.

Leaving from Jericoacoara or Préa, a lot of tourist agencies offer buggy tours to Tatajuba. I prefer this one to the tours to Azul and Paraiso Lagoons because it's longer and more varied.

You ride along the Mangue Seco beach before crossing a small river via a wooden slat bridge. One stop you can make (optional, but recommended) is to go and see seahorses that live in one of the river's branches. Then, after traveling through mangroves, you arrive on the dune at Tatajuba. This little fishing village was buried by a dune around thirty years ago. You can still see some remains. A new town center was built a bit further down.

From which you get a great view of the dunes. You can 'surf' down them by buggy or sandboard. The final stage of the tour takes you to a lagoon, where you stop to eat fish or grilled prawns, whilst swinging in a hammock with your toes in the water.
