    The Park the POO is an environment whose atmosphere is delicious and sometimes makes us feel far from the city, ideal for reading, go with the family, take a walk.

    Immense green area, with more than 1,000 acres, with being the largest public park in Brazilian cities. It is a pleasant enough place, with ample parking and easy, with hiking trails, bicycle paths, bicycle rental, picnic areas and recreation for adults and kids and small food outlets, all monitored by the military police. Must-see.

    The good of the Park happens on Sundays, where families can picnic and enjoy bicycle rides and many programs offered by government agencies. Is a very beautiful place and full of wild animals. Pretty cool to get to know. Is policed.

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.
