Jijoca de Jericoacoara is the northernmost municipality in the Brazilian state of Ceará. It is famous for its homonymous beach and national park.
The word Jericoacoara comes from Tupi and means "house of turtles." It is a city of Ceará, a state renowned for its natural beauty, wildlife and many landscapes. Jericoacoara is a location with favorable conditions for windsurfing and sandboarding.
A fact of some historical significance is the report of Vicente Yáñez Pinzón , which anchored in the bay of Jericoacoara in 1499. But this was not official at the time as a result of the Treaty of Tordesillas, which was signed in the same year.
