Maybe might work for you. Just be careful in renting apartments from people because Brazilians are good at scams. I would NOT pay anyone ahead.

If you are still interested, I lived in Fortaleza for a year. Loved it! We rented a 3 bed apt. near Beira Mar and overpaid. We paid 1500BRL- it should have been closer to 1000. We rented an older, larger 2 bed. near by for 850BRL. Totally furnished down to the pot and pans. I rented a 1 bed near Beach Park resort for 450BRL. If you know what the going rates are don't pay more. For example, we paid 10BRL for DVDs on Beira Mar and then found them for 5 at Centro so we never paid more again. By the way, go to Centro, be prepared to get confused but go and shop. Great fun.
Eat at the self service too - pay for the amount you eat and the food is great - I never had a bad self service meal and I ate all over Meireles, Aldeota, Centro, near Papicu... all over. Take busses. Learn how to get around or use them for sight seeing.
Enjoy the city. We did!

Packing List

by Yiannis2000

Camping Humidity destroyed my 2 cameras the first week of my stay in Nordeste... New ones cost the double price from Europe, it can be wise to have an inexpensive mechanical one for every occasion. Buy your hammock from the smaller shops outside the big Municipal Market of Fortaleza, do not get in there (well it's a cool place for coffee) or bring one from home!
I bought mine from there for about 20 reals and it is still fine and in use...

Morro Branco

by SoccerGirl09

I have only been to Morro Branco a couple of times. It is located in the east coasline of Fortaleza. It is famous for their pottery' and wood handicraft. The colorful "falésias and the colorful sand inspires many artists. In the last few years Morro Branco has been one of the most popular sport for street carnival for young adults. You can ride a buggy, enjoy the nightlife, the beach, or just relax.

With a rich food diversity, Fortaleza offers everything, from regional dishes to international cuisine. The typical food reflects the strong traces related to the popular culture and the influence of the settlers. The most notable are baião de dois, carne-de-sol paçoca and of couse, seafood. The most traditional dish is peixada, composed of fish stewed in vegetable souce and pirão (manioc flour and fish sauce cream). From the countryside, comes carne-do-sol with paçoca and cassava, French beans, black pudding and stewed mutton. The local aperitif is cachaça, made from sugar-cane one of the region's principal products, with several locally pro­duced brands known throughout the country.
The richness of tropical fruits is also traditionally known. The weather and the quality of the soil are favorable to the abundant growth in this region, turning fruit culture into an important business activity, one of the state's main export products. The main main ones are sugar apple, jack, sapodilla fruit, murucy fruit. hog plum, melon and acerola fruit. From these fruits, other homemade and industrialized products are obtained, such as juices, ice-creams, sweets, cajuina (regional beverage), cashew nuts, very appreciated not only in Brazil but in other countries as well.

At Beira Mar Avenue you can...

by Linee

At Beira Mar Avenue you can also see street market that works everyday from 6pm-10pm, there you can find hammocks and many different things hand made. Don't forget: ALWAYS bargain! For those that like nautic sports, you can find a Windsurf spot (they also teach classes) at this Avenue.
You must also go to 'EMCETUR', nowdays is a craft market but not a very long time ago it used to be the city prision. It is very interesting and on the top of the main building you can find a small museum from that holds typical things from the Northeast of Brazil. 'Mercado Central' is also a good place to shop for crafts but I must say that is more interesting for its design from outside.
