    Famous Torta de Banana

    by mircaskirca Written Jun 2, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you come to Jeri, don't let the opportunity of trying the famous torta de banana (banana cake) of Tia Angelita!! Everybody knows where she lives so you won't have any difficulties in finding her. You see locals stroll the streets with trays filled with this delicacy.

    In case you are too lazy to move while you are on the beach, dona Rosa saves you the effort. She is there every afternoon offering her daily fresh torta de banana.

    Those who taste it once will not miss a single day of having one. Well, at least one :)

    ...lying in a hammock for hours!
    During the hot hours of the day there is no need to be ashamed if you prefer to spend your time in a hammock. Get yours and learn to relax in it! It is an art for the people of this district to enjoy life in a hammock...

    Althought tourism reached this place,it stills keeps the unhurried lifestyle,and a peaceful way of life!
    Jericoacoara is not only beautiful sites:don't leave without truly knowing the village,the people and its rhythym,talk to the fisheremn,learn with them how life can be simple!!
    It's a worth making a visit to the local church and meet the comunity on sundays,
    The church was built with stones by the natives (the church tower shows an amazing view of the city and the bay.
    There are special celebrations that only happen in certain times,as,between 15th to 30th of july,the "Sunset a the Arched Rock,because this is the only time of the year that the sun fits right into the arch!
    At the end of the year,the windsurfers meet here for a traditional Windsurf Festival!
