They don't call Fortaleza "Brazilian Miami" for nothing.
Step out of the city life by going to Praia de Morro Branco and Iracema Beach. Get some cultural insight at Metropolitana Cathedral and Mosteiro dos Jesuitas. Change things up with these side-trips from Fortaleza: Sitio Sao Luis (in Pacoti), Beach Park (in Aquiraz) and Choco Show Chocolateria (in Maracanau). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia do Futuro, pause for some serene contemplation at Santuario Nossa Senhora de Fatima, contemplate the long history of Igreja do Rosario, and make a trip to Praca General Tiburcio.

For maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Fortaleza online trip maker.
