They don't call Fortaleza "Brazilian Miami" for nothing.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Redencao Municipal Museum and Cachaca Museum. Get some cultural insight at 10th GAC Cultural Museum and Museum of Industry. Get out of town with these interesting Fortaleza side-trips: Praia de Morro Branco (in Beberibe) and Maranguape Eco Museum (in Maranguape). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Praia do Futuro, buy something for everyone on your list at Mercado Central de Fortaleza, stroll through Iracema Beach, and admire the masterpieces at Museu de Arte Contemporanea do Ceara.

The promise of sun, sand, and surf generates plenty of tourism in Natal.
Take a break from the city and head to Ponta Negra Beach and Baia dos Golfinhos. Let the collections at Clidenor de Lima Galvao Museum and Museu Camara Cascudo capture your imagination. Explore Natal's surroundings by going to Cowboy's Museum (in Sao Jose de Mipibu), Cajueiro de Pirangi (in Pirangi do Norte) and Praia da Pipa (Pipa Beach & Madeiro Beach). There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape at Dunas de Genipabu, look for gifts at Artes do Imaginario Brasileiro, buy something for everyone on your list at Vila da Pipa Shopping, and pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja de Nossa Senhora dos Navegantes.
