Sea, Sun and Samba

The 5th largest city in Brazil, Fortaleza has beautiful beaches and is a well-known party destination for both Brazilians and foreigners. Busy nightlife and a growing number of restaurants and activities leading 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, who, 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 Theater, 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 Ave.
