If you come to Fortaleza, Ceara State, Brazil, and want a little more exciting experience than lying on the sand beach all day long, here some tips that can add a little adventure to your trip.

Mucuripe Beach

The first stop is Mucuripe Beach, in the city area, where you can rental a paddle board and practice some stand up surfing with a breathtaking view. Oh, never tried it before? No experience is required and you can enjoy the warm water.

Future Beach

And how about seeing the beach from a parachute? At the Future Beach that's possible. It's the most popular beach for locals, as well.

Porto das Dunas

Not far from Fortaleza, the Porto das Dunas can offer you gorgeous views and a little bit of adventure. You can drive a 4x4 for thrills on the dunes. With a little more money, you can also take a helicopter to see all the coast from the Beach Park.

Catu Lagoon

Driving around the dunes, you can ask for a hidden spot known by few: a lagoon called "Catu" where you can play on a natural and big water slide. The view and the fun is totally worth a little time. Go on the weekends.

I discovered my passion for new cultures when I had the opportunity to spend two years in US during an exchange program that allowed me to study English and to have one the best times of my life. I life and visit some states and also went to Caribbean and Hawaii. During that years, I could see what I was missing out just stuck in my little Brazilian box. I'm restless journalist in Fortaleza, Ceara State, city where I grew up. I'm originally from Sao Paulo, but I moved to northeast with my family when i was seven year old. Since there, God always comes first in my life. As a reporter and an editor in some TVs broadcasting site, I had an opportunity to visit and see so many places that a lot of people that lives here can’t even imagine about it. I mean, from bad to really awesome hidden spots close or far from downtown Fortaleza. With 28 years old, I can’t live without sports. Amateur runner and boxer girl on a daily basis, I tried all kind of sports I had the opportunity to: stand-up /paddle surfing, surfing, kitesurfing, snowboarding, rafting, canoeing, kayaking, abseiling, hiking, bicycling, swimming and the list goes on. But, I, of course, also appreciate a lazy day on the beach or in the mountains. As you could notice, people & adventure fascinate me, so, trying out new, exciting experiences is definitely my game. I love to laugh and make others laugh. Oh, yes, backpacking around the world is on my bucket list. Come with me? Full profile Leave a Review
