Fortaleza

Brazilian Miami

They don't call Fortaleza "Brazilian Miami" for nothing. With its shiny skyscrapers creeping to the very edge of its expansive white sand beaches, and a round-the-clock party scene, the city does its very best to emulate America's most renowned beach town. Surprisingly large, with more than 2 million residents--and incredibly popular during the holiday season--the city bustles with constant energy. Sightseeing in Fortaleza reveals another side hidden among the modern buildings that dominate its skyline: you'll see treasures of colonial architecture, as well as a 17th-century Dutch fortress. Expect hot, sticky weather, no matter what time of year you take your vacation to Fortaleza. With the Inspirock international travel planner, Fortaleza and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.

Where to stay in Fortaleza

If you want to focus on the historical attractions in Fortaleza, stay in the city center or a nearby neighborhood for easy access. Far more popular, however, is the coastal neighborhood of Praia de Iracema, where you can immerse yourself in the city's beach, restaurant, and nightlife scene. Any number of hotels line the neighborhood's expansive beachfront. For something a bit quieter, but still a stone's throw from the beach, look east to the coastal neighborhoods of De Lourdes and Praia do Futuro II. Thanks to the growing popularity of Fortaleza tourism, you can find a range of budget hostels throughout the city.
