Mandatory visit.

Mandatory. Beatiful place with excellent environment. The event to see sun down listening Ravel's Bolero is something you do not see anywhere.

Great place to visit. Friendly people. Food was easy to find and very reasonable. Prices in shops on simple basics can be expensive.

Jacarae is where sunsets take on a magical quality. To the tune of Ravels Bolero the sun takes the main stage as it dances around the clouds and takes a final bow as it dips beneath the waves. And afterward its party time the riverside restaurant explode into life, singing dancing and drinking - it is a must do experience.... More

This is a very special place in João Pessoa, northeast of Brazil. There are many rustic wood bars by the river side, all of them have the sundown view. Exactly when starts the sundown, one saxophonist plays Bolero Ravel while the sun goes down. It's very beautiful and exciting!

you need to choose the right kiosque and have a drink with "polvo a vinagrete" and enjoy the Ravel music watching a fascinating sunset

Each evening as the sun sets over Jacare beach it becomes a visitors paradise to watch the red orange ball of fire slowly dip into the horizon. As the sun sets, it is serenaded by a sax player on a boat on the river. The beautiful bars and restaurants become vantage viewing points for the photo enthusiast, where you can... More

Jacare beach is place where you go in the afternoon to see the sunset listening to a Ravel Bolero played by a local musician. He plays saxophone standing up in a canoe. If this sounds funny, stay open mind when you go. There are also local street vendors selling sourvernirs and snacks. Try the local tapioca with cheese and coconut.... More

The restaurants also try to sell to you the artist album, be aware and don't waist your money. During the... More
