A Cosmopolitan Coastal Getaway

Along the banks of the creek Pajeú, discover the coastal cosmopolitan charms of Fortaleza. Hugging the Atlantic Ocean in Northeastern Brazil, this is a city shaped by its port. Equal parts industry and culture, here you’ll find a flourishing arts scene and coastal-inspired gastronomy.

Vibrant and welcoming, it’s home to some of the country’s busiest stages. Grab tickets to any number of events taking place at The Dragão do Mar Center of Art and Culture and take in a show before indulging in a variable feast inspired by the Portuguese and indigenous roots of this region. Savor the smoky flavors of baião de dois (barbecued mutton) and steak moqueca or dive into some local shellfish. During the day, stroll past the pink and yellow colonial architecture of Fortaleza’s historic center while perusing Ceará handicrafts in nearby market stalls. When night falls, head to Avenida Beira Mar for an evening of fine dining, cocktails, and Forró music.

Of course, with this much local seafood, the beach is never too far. Explore all 16 miles of Fortaleza’s sandy beaches, including Praia du Futuro, Iracema Beach, and Meireles Beach—favorites amongst vacationing Brazilians and Europeans. You’ll find plenty to do along the turquoise coast. Take a boat ride out to Pedra da Risca do Meio Marine State Park to discover 8,200 acres of undisturbed mangrove forest, reefs, and exotic fish species. Dive, swim, snorkel, or simply relax. This is the destination for those who like their dinner like their vacation—full of surf and turf.
