    The beach of the feature is a typically Brazilian beach, There you can buy coconut water at a cheap price, And to eat a good Brazilian shrimp fished by artisanal fishermen

    Amazing view of the city Fortaleza. Great sand. And good place to get a nice shot of the city. A bit windy at the end of the of the molo! But this is a place to see if you are in town.

    On Saturday night it was seriously busy and lively, but not in a bad way. Pretty good selection of both mass-produced and hand-crafted goods. Not an incredible amount of variety between the shops. More interesting than the grand Central Market.

    We visited RioMar from our cruise ship, which provided a shuttle. It's a very large and very nice indoor mall with virtually every kind of store that might be needed. The prices at most places seemed very reasonable. There are also a variety of places to eat.....we found some great gelato.

    The visit to this mall was better than the tour we had earlier in the day.

    Lots of options of local handcrafted goods such as “Renda de Bilro”. The market is huge. But careful: there are lots of stores selling Chinese products instead.

    Dragão do Mar is a local hero. The state of Ceará build a Cultural Center to honor his story. There are so many art pieces that I highly recommend a visit. As far as I remember we didn't expend any money to visit it.

    Great variety of stores, restaurants, and fast food/food courts. Went on a Saturday and there was a community event. Great people watching.

    We had an amazing day at the aguas belas beach!!
    I recommend going with an organized tour as they explain everything and bring you to the nicest places.

    Only „negative“ point is, that you have to book a buggy tour to get to see the official aguas belas. But for 70 Reais per person it‘s totally worth the trip!!

    Brazilians are crazy of football and in Fortaleza with several teams you must go to Arena Castelão and experience this. A good area with good views from almost every seat. Have fun!

    This town is right on the ocean and built for a party. The weather is fantastic - much closer to the equator than Rio so even warmer ., the Avenue comes alive with hotels, restaurants, and shops. Spectacular for running and strolling .. love it!

    This church is absolutely gorgeous. Not so impressive from the outside but inside are exquisite stainless glass windows. It is airy and large. Well worth visiting.
