They don't call Fortaleza "Brazilian Miami" for nothing.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Morro Branco and Praia de Futuro. Get a sense of the local culture at Metropolitana Cathedral and 10th GAC Cultural Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Aquiraz (Beach Park, Porto das Dunas Beach, & more), Aguas Belas Beach (in Caponga) and Monumento Natural das Falesias de Beberibe (in Beberibe). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Iracema Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Piriquara Beach (Coqueiros), look for gifts at Mercado Central de Fortaleza, and take advantage of the amenities at Crocobeach.

Florida’s mecca of fun in the sun, the lively tropical metropolis of Miami is one of the world’s top vacation spots.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at South Beach and Haulover Beach Park. Step out of the city life by going to Shark Valley and Fort Lauderdale Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Miami: Sawgrass Mills (in Sunrise), Fort Lauderdale (E Las Olas Blvd & Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church) and Everglades National Park (Pineland Trail, Gumbo Limbo Trail, & more). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Lincoln Road, buy something for everyone on your list at Dolphin Mall, shop like a local with Aventura Mall, and don't miss a visit to Bayside Marketplace.
