Fortaleza— 9 nights
They don't call Fortaleza "Brazilian Miami" for nothing.Let the collections at Cachaca Museum and Museu da Fotografia Fortaleza capture your imagination. Visit Morro Branco and Fontes Beach for some beach relaxation. Venture out of the city with trips to Aquiraz (Porto das Dunas Beach & Beach Park), Maranguape Eco Museum (in Maranguape) and Redencao (Senzala Negro Liberto Museum & Redencao Municipal Museum). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Metropolitana Cathedral, kick back and relax at Iracema Beach, see the interesting displays at Casa Jose de Alencar, and admire the masterpieces at Ceara Museum of Contemporary Art.
