They don't call Fortaleza "Brazilian Miami" for nothing.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Praia de Morro Branco and Porto das Dunas Beach. Get a sense of the local culture at Cachaca Museum and Metropolitana Cathedral. Change things up with these side-trips from Fortaleza: Sitio Sao Luis (in Pacoti) and Senzala Negro Liberto Museum (in Redencao). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia do Futuro, pause for some serene contemplation at Capela Sao Pedro, and steep yourself in history at Centro de Turismo do Ceara.
