Fortaleza

Brazilian Miami

They don't call Fortaleza "Brazilian Miami" for nothing. With its shiny skyscrapers creeping to the very edge of its expansive white sand beaches, and a round-the-clock party scene, the city does its very best to emulate America's most renowned beach town. Surprisingly large, with more than 2 million residents--and incredibly popular during the holiday season--the city bustles with constant energy. Sightseeing in Fortaleza reveals another side hidden among the modern buildings that dominate its skyline: you'll see treasures of colonial architecture, as well as a 17th-century Dutch fortress. Expect hot, sticky weather, no matter what time of year you take your vacation to Fortaleza. Fortaleza is in State of Ceara (CE). Plan your holiday in Fortaleza and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Brazil vacation planner.
