    Forteleza is a pretty city as Brazil goes. Plan on traveling some way to enjoy the beaches because the beaches within the city are open sewers. If you travel a good half hour out you’ll find some fantastic spots. I am terrible with names so I hope someone else can step in here and recommend.

    Thank you for your input. We stayed there a few years back at the Beira Mar can’t say much for the room but all things else ( breakfast, hotel personal) were great. any one have info. about hotels you might suggest? We would like to stay on Meirelles stretch.

    One cool beach (about 45 minutes outside the city) is Cumbuco Beach. If you want to travel a bit further to a small paradise, I would suggest doing an excursion to Jericoacoara for a couple of days. If you like live music and clubs, you should go to Dragao do Mar – lots of live music outside and little clubs to go to on the weekend. You could also go to some of little clubs on Praia do Futuro (but be careful there at night)! If you want a cool club for rich-bitches, then check out the Pink Elephant. If you are into “not-American-football” (i.e. soccer) you could check out a match at Castelao stadium. They have bike lanes and city bikes now as well, and folks here are pretty respectful. So you could also ride your bike around Aldeota/Meirelles for a little sightseeing. If you like arts and crafts and cool stuff made by artisans, go the Mercado Central. They also have an AWESOME juice bar downstairs and traditional cearense food at lunch time. They have TONS of artistic handmade things there that you wont find in most places.

    The best hotel is Hotel Luzeiros on Beira Mar, as they have English speaking staff, and the people aren’t all a bunch of idiots 🙂

    Sex tourism is big in Fortaleza. You will see lots of middle aged European men. Not sure if still, but there were direct flights coming in from England and Holland to cater to this

    I’ve always stayed at the Marina Park Hotel (5 Brazilian Stars) Marina. I use to walk and cycle everywhere without a problem, but you need to be careful. I did get drugged and robbed at one of the ‘pick-up’ bars.
    I was last there in 2011 – things change.
    Have fun.

    That reminds me of a funny occurrence when I was there. I was with my ex and my daughter yet a prostitute thought she was a street walker and I was her gringo John!!!!!! She was drunk or high and wouldn’t leave us alone for some time. My ex was NOT AT ALL dressed like a hooker! She just saw a lilly white gringo with a tan Brazilian and did some silly math in her head. LOL
