Travelers' Choice
Located on the quiet Praia do Preá (the kitesurfing mecca), 12 km from Jericoacoara, Rancho do Peixe is immersed in nature and seeks comfort with simplicity, charm and poetry. The pousada learned to live with and respect the local fauna, which is welcome and is part of the experience. And all the pousada's furniture and objects are built with local, rustic and reused materials. The bungalows at Rancho do Peixe were designed to privilege the natural circulation of the wind, so they do not have air conditioning. All have ceiling fans and minibars. Private decks have hammocks. And there are no TVs in the rooms, as nature is the main attraction. Some accommodations at Rancho do Peixe are close to the coconut grove. Others offer fantastic views of Praia do Preá and the beautiful sunset. Facilities include a spa, restaurant, bar and 25 meter swimming pool. You also have the WSC Brasil inside the pousada, a place dedicated to sailors with a storehouse included in the daily rate, downwinds, coachings for you to improve and classes, with all the necessary support to adventure Kitesurfing, Wingfoil, Windsurfing, SUP, Surfing and much more.

My family and I spent a week at Rancho do Piexe and loved it! The bungalows are beautiful and super comfortable. The staff were all kind, competent and eager to make our experience an excellent one. The water sports center is also a great benefit to guests at the hotel. The people at the front desk and restaurant seem to genuinely care about their guests experience. For your kite surfing adventures in Brazil, I recommend RdP without any hesitation.

The first place we've stayed where 'no plastic' and 'merging with the natural environment' seem to be taken quite seriously. Everywhere you turn to in this unique inn you´ll see creativity combined with natural and local materials, native-like buildings that may look like huts but in fact are much more. Comfortable cottages with no need for air conditioning because of the way they are built, as learned from the locals. Service is also a big plus, from Erlan the most hospitable and good-natured Concierge to the Receptionist ladies, to the staff at the restaurant, to the person who takes care of the vegetable garden (amazingly green!) to the cooks... The food is outstanding too. Unforgettable breakfast, with all our requests accomodated by everyone there. There's peace, there are activities if you want to. And be prepared to wake up to birds singing and to the sunlight gently breaking through the crevices and thatched roof of your cottage, while the wind blows and you smell the sea air. And to shower under the stars.

Great place for water sports, especially kite surfing, for which the area is well known for. There are over 20 bungalows in the property, split between sea facing and garden. Would recommend to stick to the ones with the sea view… it’s quite something to sleep and wake up to the soft sound of the waves in the distance. But what sets Rancho do Peixe apart is the staff, who is always keen to serve and help in whichever way possible. The breakfast menu is immense and soooo delicious, much like the rest of the lunch and dinner menu. Rancho do Peixe is a 40 minute drive to Jericoacoara, hence it’s best experiences by those who want to relax, chill and enjoy their time in water sports.
