Land of Light
Traditionally one of Brazil's poorest regions, State of Ceara has developed into a major tourist destination over the last two decades largely because of its extensive coastline spanning nearly 600 km (370 mi). Idyllic palm-fringed beaches provide picturesque settings for active State of Ceara vacations and especially appeal to adrenaline-seeking kitesurfers and windsurfers. Travelers taking time to tour State of Ceara farther inland discover a land of fertile valleys known for their production of tropical fruits and narrow rivers flanked by dense vegetation. State capital Fortaleza remains one of the best places to start a tour of State of Ceara; it's known for its colonial architecture and modern nightlife.
