    The Tourism Center of Fortaleza is a good choice to buy that souvenir of the trip, because it has a good price and quality products! Worth to check!

    The site is legal to buy, but on Saturdays it closes earlier than announced by Google here in Fortaleza-CE everything closes early on Saturdays in the Center.

    Ideal place to find handicraft from Ceará. Shops aimed at tourists, but local clients can find great products here.

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.
