Sightseeing Highlights

  • Parque do Cocó - the biggest urban park of Latin America.
  • Travel the Ceará River by boat. It is a nice promenade, and looks like a little Pantanal!

When I think of Fortaleza, I remember smiles, laughter, tears, music, singing and dancing. Relationships seem to be their biggest priority, making the time shared with them a lifelong memory. - FF Greater Orlando Ambassador
