  • Cumbuco is a beach located in the municipality of Caucaia, 35 km from Fortaleza, at least 40 minutes to get there. Is it worth it? Maybe not, because still the same problem from the coast at Fortaleza. There is far, few options for eating and drinking, you pay above average prices, and it's all the same ... nothing different! I felt more relaxed, perhaps because the harassment of hawkers decreased, however they appear. I like to stay in the hotel Terra Brasilis, saved a little effort to get to Cumbuco. I know almost all the brazilian coast and fortress was a disappointment. However, do not forget to check ...

  • The beach is bad with very strong waves. The attractive and the ride of bugue with emotion. But as I was with young children didn't do this tour. Has a mini water park in cumbuco beach tent that pretty cool for the kids. Ticket for 35 reais. Children under 1 meter does not pay
