Covering an area of 1,155 hectares (2,854 acres), Coco Park is one of the largest urban parks in South America. Following the course of the Cocó River, the park is home to many endangered species of plant and animal, in particular the globally threatened mangrove ecosystem. Take a boat tour along the river, or explore the park's many nature trails and experience the diverse and unique flora and fauna up close and personal. Many people come to the park to relax and escape the stresses of city life, but for the adventurous, activity options also include canopy tours, rock climbing, and abseiling.

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.

  • It's like a mini forest in the middle of the city. The place is well secured, with police officers surrounding it, but you'd better leave your personal belongings somewhere safe (hotel/home). You can ...  more »
  • Pleasure space to biking, runing with parent, chidren and friends. Many hiking trails, trees, streams and creeks.  more »
  • A nice tranquil location. We saw over 20 species of birds, lots of flora, monkies, and even some bats sleeping under the shade of a tree! very nice way to spend a morning.  more »

  • Extremely beautiful and good for sightseeing. There are Porta-Potties, but shut down after the 17:00, so go prepared. Unfortunately it's a little unkempt, areas with mud and haven't seen cops inside to ensure security, externally saw several. I've heard of assaults, but when I was there it seemed quiet. Work from 05:30 until 17:30.
