Itinerary

DAY 1 - CITY TOUR WITH CUMBUCO BEACH

On a morning City Tour, you are invited to discover the history and uniqueness of the beautiful city of Fortaleza. The Portuguese colonists were the first non-native settlers in Ceara that, in dispute with Dutchmen around the Fort of Schooneborch, founded a small village that would officially become the city of Fortaleza de Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, on April 13, 1726. Today, the city is the fifth largest in Brazil with a population of 2.2 million. You'll experience the full spectrum of the city, from young Fortaleza to old. Experience first hand the diversity and beauty of the city's well maintained historical buildings, including: the Metropolitan Cathedral, Central Market, the President Castelo Branco Mausoleum, the Martyr's Square, the Center of Tourism, the Statue of Iracema, the Beach of Meireles with its famous crafts fair, the beach that shelters the Rafts Harbour of Mucuripe and the famous Praia do Futuro Beach.

Then it's on to the Sol Poente Route to discover a haven of countless natural beauties. 37 km east of Fortaleza, in the district of Caucaia, you will find Cumbuco Beach. Originally an ancient fisherman colony, Cumbuco is a beautiful place with a surprising sand dune landscape punctuated only by mini oases of green coconut trees and sparkling ponds. You'll have all the amenities you need to relax, with classic hotels, bars and restaurants nearby. When you're done relaxing and ready for action, Cumbuco offersa a variety of optionals (not included in the tour price): rustic raft rides and exciting dune buggy rides on the moving dunes, or take a shot at the local sport, ski-bunda where riders take a speed sled down the giant sand dunes, picking up speed before crashing into the refreshing waters of the pond of Parnamirim. You can also try a fun horseback ride. All these activities are optional and available for purchase on-site. In late afternoon, you'll travel back to your Fortaleza hotel.

DAY 2 - CANOA QUEBRADA

Located 156 km from Fortaleza, in the district of Aracati, Canoa Quebrada is the perfect beach paradise, ideal for anyone searching for only the most unique, mystic and exotic landscapes. Massive cliffs surround you, with belvederes overlooking the beautiful town of Canoa Quebrada where time has stopped. Simplicity echoes from the cliffs of this land before time where you can forget about the world and enter the life of one of the town’s natives.

Indulge your culinary palate by entering one of the many huts across the beach where you can purchase the freshest variety of seafood dishes you'll ever taste. An optional high speed buggy ride through rugged sand dunes will make you feel like you're in the middle of an international rally race taking place in the heart of the desert. Bathe in the warm waters of this small, reef-protected bay and experience peacefulness that can only be felt in Canoa Quebrada.

You'll be back at your Fortaleza lodging in late afternoon.

DAY 3 - MORRO BRANCO

Approximately 50 miles from Fortaleza is the district of Beberibe, one of the most beautiful areas on the Ceara seacoast. The filming location for various television and movie productions, Morro Branco is world famous for its handmade works of art created inside glass containers.

Here tourists may purchase an optional tour to be led by a local guide into the labyrinths formed between the dunes and cliffs from which various shades of colored sands are removed.

Arrival back at your Fortaleza lodging is usually around 4:00 pm.

DAY 4 - LAGOINHA

104 km from Fortaleza, in the district of Paraipaba, Lagoinha is one of the biggest attractions along the Sol Poente Route. Once an ancient hiding place for French Pirates, today Lagoinha is a quiet fisherman colony situated in a majestic position overlooking an exuberant landscape of coconut trees, white sand beaches and red dunes that welcome the lazy waves lapping the shores of this natural bay.

The bars and restaurants offer optional boat rides to the Almecegas Pond combined with pau-de-arara rides (an open truck used by migrants).

Once again, arrival back at your Fortaleza lodging is in late afternoon.

DAY 5 - BEACH PARK (ROUNDTRIP TRANSFER)

22 km east of Fortaleza on the Sol Nascente Route, hidden among the dunes of the Aquiraz district, you'll also find the beach of Porto das Dunas, home to an internationally recognized top water park of the world - Beach Park! This modern oasis combines the fun and beauty of the beach with all the high tech rides of a favorite water park. The compound also hosts souvenir shops, the Jangada museum and a structure on the beach roasting flavorful fresh-caught crab.

As one of the largest seaside aquatic parks in the world, Aqua Park has something fun for everyone with water slides, waterfalls, an artificial river and two thrilling rides you won’t find anywhere else - the INSANO, the tallest water slide in the world with a radical descent of 41 m - and the MAREMOTO, the largest wave pool in Latin America.
