The 10 Best Things to Do in Fortaleza, Brazil

January 22, 2018 Randal Brittian

Beaches are the top draw in this sunny, rapidly developing city, particularly bohemian, party-hearty Iracema, family-friendly Meireles, fishing and boating base camp Mucuripe and low-key Praia do Futuro. Stalls at the Mercado Central or Feirinha Beira Mar brim with local handicrafts, ranging from ceramics to lacework and leather goods. The Dutch-built Fortress of Nossa Senhora da Assunção in the city center, constructed in 1649, marks the spot where Fortaleza originated.

Praia de Futuro

This beach is notable for its strong surf and plentiful bars.

Reviewed By mcrj_11 - London, United Kingdom

For those is Fortaleza seeking to get away from the city Beaches this is a great and very close by day trip. You can also stay here. The beach is spectacular - soft white sand - although very strong waves for those not confident in their swimming abilities. The beach is Lined with complexes to cater to day tourists - these include bars, restaurants, lockers to store valuables, swimming pools for cheap often and even atms and even shops for beach wear. Some also have live music. They are a bit tacky but fun. There are additionally smaller barracas which are quieter. Well worth a visit.

Ceara Show

Reviewed By Janaina M - Fortaleza, CE

It´s a stunning, remarkable and funny musical! The music is excellent! The dancers and singers are outstanding! In addition, the story is beautiful!
The theater´s décor has so many details that makes you think only an artist could have done it. The curtains are made of hammock fabric (produced in Ceará), all colorful! A real piece of art!
And when the show starts you learn about the history of the state through the lines, lyrics, pictures, dances, laughs and cries!
When it ends you´ll start planning your next visit!
I have seen it 5 times and every time I go, I love it more.
The tickets go from R$ 40 to R$ 90; I prefer the superior sits!
Highly recommend it!

Before going there take a look what is being displayed there. Sometimes they have good expositions but not always. It is not close to the main touristic area so ...

Centro de Eventos do Ceara

Reviewed By dr_anshu - Sevagram, India

A great venue if you ever want to organize an international convention. Everything is perfectly organized, disabled friendly and thought about. The small rooms, media rooms etc are great. The escalators are nice as well.
It must be expensive though! The venue is 20 min from the main city. We were told not to venture out away from the convention centre as it was not safe. But inside we had a great time

Reviewed By Andre Xenofonte S - Fortaleza, CE

One of the oldest cinemas in the city with a richly decorated interior. This theater was closed for several years and only works for festivals and special events. The facade has nothing special, do not waste your time. See just passing through the Ferreira´s square.
