How to Spend 2 Days in Fortaleza

How to Spend 2 Days in Fortaleza

With two days in Fortaleza, there’s time to explore the region’s famous beaches, venture inland to see the city sights, feast on delicious Brazilian cuisine, and party at the legendary forro clubs. Here’s how to spend two days in Fortaleza.

Day 1: City Sights & Caipirinha Cocktails

Morning: Fortaleza is a large city, so it’s worth hiring a guide to take in the sights or booking a city tour that will introduce you to all the highlights. Admire the views along the palm-lined Avenida Beira Mar promenade, discover the region’s diverse cultural heritage at the Museum of Ceara, and take in landmarks such as the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Statue of Iracema, and the President Castelo Branco Mausoleum.

Afternoon: A visit to the Cachaça Museum lets you learn about the history of Brazil’s national drink and gives you a chance to sample a perfect caipirinha. The museum is part of the iPark Tourist Complex, so leave time to explore—a photo by the world’s largest wooden barrel is a must, and there are a range of activities, from zip lining through the forest to wakeboarding on the lake.

Night: Back in Fortaleza, visit the restaurants along the seafront at Futuro Beach, which offer plenty of options for a seafood dinner. The best time to visit is on a Thursday, when locals gather for a crab feast known as caranguejada. Stick around afterwards and dance into the early hours at popular beach clubs like Crocobeach.

Day 2: Beach-hopping to Bar-hopping

Morning: The fishing village of Cumbuco is a popular choice for a half-day tour, and it’s full of photo-worthy views; think palm-fringed white sands, azure lagoons, and towering golden sand dunes. While you’re there, pick up an acai bowl (an acai berry smoothie topped with fruit and muesli), enjoy a swim in the lakes, or take part in water sports like Jet Skiing or kitesurfing.

Afternoon: Fortaleza’s four city beaches—Mucuripe, Meireles, Iracema, and Futuro—are all great choices for a lazy afternoon by the sea. Another fun option is Beach Park, Latin America’s largest water park, which lies just outside the city and offers extreme slides, wave pools, swimming pools, and activities for all ages. Book your tickets in advance to avoid the queues and enjoy round-trip transfers.

Night: First, watch the sunset at Ponte dos Ingleses pier at Iracema Beach, then make your way to the nearby Dragão do Mar cultural center, where you can experience traditional Brazilian forró music and dancing at a variety of bars, restaurants, and live music venues. Book a bar-hopping tour with a guide who will help you navigate the city at night and recommend the best (and safest) spots.
