I visited Fortaleza last summer with my husband and another married couple, the flight was very long but it was worth every minute, it's a wonderful place and I was enchanted by its beautiful beaches. The locals are very nice and welcoming and we felt at home from the beginning. There are so many places to visit in Fortaleza, we had a lot of fun visiting the market at the Feirinha Beira-mar where we purchased many handmade souvenirs and we enjoyed visiting the Dragao do Mar Center of Art and Culture. We spent most of the time sunbathing and having delicious drinks served in coconut shells on the beach during the morning, we visited the city during the afternoon and then we enyoed the night life, there are many discos, clubs and bars all over the place. The food was delicious, we had fish and lots of fresh fruits almost every day. It was a fantastic experience and I hope I'll be able to visit Fortaleza again. If you have the chance to visit it, please do. You won't regret it!
