Whether dining on the region’s excellent seafood cuisine, relaxing in the sun, taking in the city’s colonial architecture, or dancing the night away to live music, Fortaleza will never leave you at a loss for things to do. The blue skies all year round, delicious restaurants, and rich local culture are the perfect mix for an unforgettable 4-star vacation in Fortaleza.

Things to see in Fortaleza

O Dragão do Mar is a striking building that is a central part of the city’s cultural life, hosting shows, festivals, theater, exhibitions, markets, and many other activities. This must-see attraction is centrally located right by Praia de Iracema beach. Head to Fortaleza’s most beautiful beach—Praia do Futuro—for some sunbathing in the hot sand, and cool off with a dip in the blue surf or a fresh coconut water. This picturesque strand’s beachside stalls and parasols are made of palm leaves, creating a tropical island effect in an urban setting. For those wanting to peruse artisanal products and perhaps choose some authentic souvenirs, there’s no better place than the Mercado Central. This market has a huge selection of artwork, crafts, and delicacies to take home as distinctive souvenirs, not to mention the region’s famous hammocks.

4-star hotels in Fortaleza

The majority of 4 star hotels in Fortaleza are large, elaborate complexes, normally in multi-story towers with lavish services and facilities, including private spas, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, exclusive rooftop terraces, health clubs, housekeeping, and helpful staff ready to help you with your bags, booking tours, or any other assistance you might need. Most four-star Fortaleza hotels offer good-quality restaurants, and a delicious buffet breakfast is usually included. A small number of business-orientated hotels have conference rooms and meeting facilities, while others provide childcare and babysitting services. If you're looking for something a little different from your 4-star accommodation in Fortaleza, why not try one of the high-quality pousadas, private apartments, and villas dotted around the city?

Where to stay in Fortaleza

Fortaleza’s best four-star hotels all have one thing in common—they’re just a stone’s throw from the city's soft, sandy beaches and all boast spectacular sea views. Meireles is a quiet beachside suburb, close enough to downtown to be convenient for the sights, while also offering a calmer, more refined setting. Varjota is another excellent choice of location as it offers a wide variety of upscale hotels, and is noted for its exceptional dining options. The area around Praia do Futuro is an especially desirable place to stay as it is considered the best beach in the city.

How to get to Fortaleza

Fortaleza’s closest major airport is Pinto Martins, which offers connections to other major cities in Brazil, a number of cities in South America, and some direct international flights. Located less than 10 miles from downtown, you can easily grab a cab and be in the city in around 20 minutes. Rental cars are readily available both from the airport and in Fortaleza itself, opening up possibilities for day trips, as well as the option to stay by the best beaches a little outside the city center. Taxi trips to surrounding towns and beaches are comfortable and can be easily arranged.
