We went to Via Sul Mall and people were talking to us like they knew us. Wanted to know where we are coming from, how do we find Fortaleza,and if they can be of any help to us. When we exit the mall, there were no taxis available, we stood for about 3 minutes and a gentle man in security uniforms approached us and asked if we needed any help. We told him we need a taxi. He immediately got us the next taxi that arrived after speaking some Portuguese to the rest of the people that were waiting for taxis too.

    The 5th largest city of Brazil couldn’t be less than its bigger sisters. With beautiful beaches facing the Atlantic Ocean and a well-known party atmosphere, Fortaleza is one the preferred touristic destinations for both Brazilians and foreigners. A busy nightlife and a growing number of restaurants and activities in the lead up to the 2014 FIFA World Cup make this city an ideal retreat.

    Discovered by Spaniards, colonized by Portuguese and also briefly by the Dutch, Fortaleza is a vibrant city and capital of the Ceará State. The city’s identity is strongly marked by the writer José de Alencar, which with his novel Iracema inspired names and statues spread all over Fortaleza.

    Enjoy the typical Forró music and dance, walk along Beira Mar promenade, and eat in one of the popular barracas shacks. Don’t miss the old colonial buildings, like the José de Alencar Theatre, Fortaleza's Cathedral or the Forte de Nossa Senhora da Assunção.

    You can find 5-star hotels in Fortaleza, as well as small pousadas. Fortaleza hotels are concentrated mainly around the area between Praia de Iracema beach and Mucuripe, along Beira Mar Av.
