    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

    Very big shopping mall with multiple options from big brands to all kinds of food in the food court. It's a good choice if you have kids.

    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.

    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 is one of the largest and most modern of the malls in Fortaleza and probably one of my favourites as it is quite easy to navigate and has the benefit of a hypermarket as part of the complex. Free wifi is available but you need a passport or ID number to log on

    A nice park for relaxing and recreation. Usually a lot of people on the weekends. A good alternative for the beach. All the trees makes it cool and nice.

    First of all I would like to admit how nice is ocean there: it is quite wild if you swim a bit far from the beach and the water is just ideal (not hot and not cold, clean and very salty). Second thing that I consider as a plus is safety: there are many locals in the morning (from 5 am to near 7 am they swim and a bunch of people jogging around. I am still under a huge impression after my first morning there: people of all ages run and do sport!!!! Brazilians should be proud of themselves!!!). Third thing is placed also along the beach line: it is a line with many different people that sell everything from leather to Brazilian nuts and goodies. You can always negotiate there. I am absolutely in love with their crafts and jewerly (gonna buy in a few days).
    What was not that nice is that they don’t have toilets around (where do you go, people?). I can understand locals - they go home and most of them live close. But what about tourists? All the toilets around are closed or dirty and the option is only to try your luck in cafes..

    Anyway and in overall, the ocean is still there. And this is the only thing we need. Isn’t it?

    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.

    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!

    I live on front of the Centro de Eventos do Ceará. Clean, well maintained, they can run the biggest show ever, you do not hear nothing from the outside. End of shows are kind o very slow to get out the parking. All daytime events I registered, 100% .

    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.

    The police were on strike and our cruise ship was only stopping for a brief time, so we did not see all that much. However, this is the nicest thing that we saw here.
