  • Great option to go hiking in nature. Easy trails. You can get to the Poop. It is safe. You can picnic on the lawn. Has public toilet. On Sundays there's zip line dance ... All for free. Only on Sunday morning is forbidden to ride a bike in the Park. But you can walk the streets in bikelane. There's bike rental on site on Sunday.

  • I was apprehensive because of the security, but I had a nice surprise, I never felt so at ease, patrolling and motorized bikes, many people walking quietly and students in class of the local field without comment, a beautiful nature in the heart of fortaleza. Several options of trails, I was in all, the place is also suitable for picnics. Go without fear and enjoy the nature that remains.

  • Super nice place, with a very nice track, both for children and for adolescents or adults. Pure nature, with a beautiful view and exotic. Sunday's activities on the grass, offered by the city, which serves all public. Wonderful site for photos! Worth checking out and go with time, things hours fly!!! A walk with the family or even a couple, that you can't stop doing.

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.
