Fortaleza

Fortaleza ©
They don't call Fortaleza "Brazilian Miami" for nothing.
You'll get in some beach time at Praia de Morro Branco and Iracema Beach. Museum-lovers will get to explore Maranguape Eco Museum and 10th GAC Cultural Museum. Explore Fortaleza's surroundings by going to Beach Park (in Aquiraz) and Choco Show Chocolateria (in Maracanau). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Praia de Futuro, examine the collection at Museum of Industry, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Metropolitana Cathedral, and contemplate the long history of Igreja do Rosario.

Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Sao Paulo in December since evenings lows in Fortaleza dip to 30°C.
