by dee19

I'm planning a trip to Fortaleza this fall and I was wondering how safe is it in Fortaleza? There have been a few comments that it is the second dangerous city in Brazil??
Thanks!

Dee--
You've gotten good advice on the other forum:

Fortaleza has been infamous for sex tourism, which the government has been trying to control. Where there are lots of incapacitated tourists who turn themselves into victims, there may well be people who prey on them, hence what you may have heard. So stay as far from that environment as possible and you should have a tranquil trip.

One third of Fortaleza's people lives in favelas (slums). The state government mean to improve safety adding troop to the streets:

I am sending below the Fortaleza's district map. To get it click in "Mapa dos bairros de Fortaleza".

http://www.ceara.com.br/cepg/mapa_ceara.htm

http://diariodonordeste.globo.com/materia.asp?codigo=386538

The main Fortaleza slums are known as: Barroso II, Novo Barroso, Lagamar, Jangurussu, Gato Morto, Pirambu, Favela do Rato and some others...
The main offenses: killimgs, robbery, children's prostitution.

Try to be far from the slums. Maybe Iracema and Centro(Downtown) are some nice district hints. Av. Beira Mar is another good hint. Praia do Futuro is another good hint.

Hi.
It is true that a lot of statistics show that the violence isn't under control here is Brazil.
However, I have to say that I've never been robbed ou suffered any kind of violence here for 10 years.
If you bear in mind some advices, I think you can spend your vacation safe without problems.
First of all, don't go to the place everyone says "it's dangerous". I know a lot of tourists that want to visit favelas just out of curiosity. Just don't do it.
Also, try not to use the clothes that call atention and try to avoid the place where few people go around.
It's important to ask someone you can trust like hotel manager before doing something if you aren't sure.
Of course I can't guarantee your safety for sure. Nevertheless, with my advices and your efforts, I'm pretty sure that your vacation will be nice and safe.

Late reply, sorry... but well, Fortaleza is fairly safer than Rio and Sao Paulo.
Basic tips are applied for anywhere in the world: no walking around alone, late at night or carrying too many things with you like camera, watch, mobile phone, jewelery, etc.

Fortaleza... the kitesurfing capital of the world!

by Andreas1978

From Fortaleza, it's only an hours drive to the best kitesurfing spots in the world. From June to January, the wind blows from the South constantly giving you winds up to 30 knots about 6 days a week!!

If you don't kitesurf, there are dozens of kitesurfing schools around Fortaleza and you are almost guaranteed to master this sport during your stay. It's safe, fun and gives you a great workout at the same time!

If you don't feel you are up for the challange, then drive up to the spots anyway and watch the pro's fly!! It's very entertaining, and many of the surf spots, such as Queba Mar in Paracuru has it's own restaurant on the beach wich gives you a great view while relaxing with a cold beer! Kitesurfing requires a kite, wakeboard and a harness. You can rent this in Combuco, and possibly in Paracuru, but this is included if you take a kitesurfing lesson of course.

From Monday through Monday...

by FluffHead

From Monday through Monday there is always something going on in Fortaleza. A great deal is going to Pagliuca Café, which is actually a bar/pub and order a Gin Fizz or a beer and enjoy the Tuesdays night where they turn the lights off and fire the bar....It's AWESOME
Spots to hang out: Empire Cafe (my favourite), cafe Pagliuca, Praia de Iracema, Opção Futuro on Friday night, clubs such as Mucuripe and Pimenta Maluca or Órbita on Sunday nights..... Whatever!

Don't Miss The Fresh Seafood!

by IneXisTenZ about Restaurant TIA NAIR

Close to the beach.. Great view, nice ambient.. the service is excellent..
Against: Don't eat close to the front.. the people who passes in the street will annoy you trying to sell you something. SEAFOOD!

Iced coconut water

by sailornappo

One of the most refreshing (and cheap) drinks is the water from a coconut. Usually they are refrigerated or packed in ice and a hole cut into the top to be able to drink this most delicious and nutricious liquid at a cost of as low as about 0.50 Reais.
