  • Nice visually but do not expect to come out with very good quality clothing items. However, it is possible to find bargains. Ditto if we're looking for souvenirs. The shops often sell similar or identical items with very different prices. Do not hesitate to negotiate.

  • The market of Fortaleza: essential. All the odds and ends of memories and small joints at very good rates. On 4 levels to more than a 1/2 day to tour in detail.

  • Has good products, but it's pretty crowded, so ideally come with someone who has already been a few times. Got children's toys as more modern automatic weapons of soap bubbles and superheroes puppets in Minecraft version. A lot of variety, recommend to tourists with known or trusted guides who know the place.

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.
