Canoa Quebrada Travel Guide
Beach at Canoa Quebrada
Broadway is the main street in Canoa Quebrada where most of the restaurants, shops, bars and clubs are located. During the day the place can be quiet and pleasant for a stroll along the cobblestone street browsing through the shops and the street has plenty of options for a...
The Sun Rise
While for me sunsets have always been more impressive than sun rises (Probably because I'm usually not up to see them!!!) the sun rise in Canoa Quebrada is stunning. After spending the night at a beach party, everyone gathers on the beach in canoa Quebrada to watch the sun...
The beach is the centre piece of Canoa Quebrada. The unspoilt, clean beach is one the North East's finest beaches and the fine white sand stretches for miles along the coast. One of the things that sets it apart from other beaches is its unusual red coloured sand cliffs...
During the nigth, you will find all along the main street, Broadway Street people playing this kind of games.........You will find people completely serious trying to win some little money to buy later (of course) somthing to drink ;)A funny activity but please: dont bet too...
Its too funny, epecially if you have drink some Caipirinhas before ;)The bad part its when you have to came back, when you have to climb up. You need to be strong and have a great sence of humor when you hear all your friends comments up there!!!!!!
In those tiny and small cars, you will discover the Town. The fishying town its small, but there are many places really nice to see, that its better for you to go with locals that know the stories, the legends and the magic stuff of those lands.Those excursions are really...
Take an organized tour in the dunas, in a beach boogie! It is terrific fun, and you will be taken by a guide, as it can be dangerous for people who dont know the area very well.They go to different places in the area, depending on your wish. Have a lunchbreak on a good...
Pousada Iguana: Impressive!
I had been to Brazil but never to Canoa Quebrada. I remember friends saying it was "the craziest beach in Brazil". That's all my boyfriend needed to hear. We arrived in Canoa after renting a car in Fortaleza and headed to Pousada Iguana because we heard a bunch of Americans...
Pousada Do Toni: Pousada Do Toni
My stay at Pousada Do Toni was very enjoyable. The pousada is set high on a hill overlooking the beautiful beach of Canoa Quebrada offering stunning views over the rugged landscape, town, beach and sea. The staff at the pousada were very accomodating and as there was a large...

Luxury Place (paying little money)
After some relax time, Cuchi (one of my friends) and I went to find a special place to stay some days in Canoa. We walk and walk and finally found The Place: a wonderful house with big swimmingpool, big bed, big balcony, big jacuzzi........paying few reales ;)We were really...

This pousada is a nice and clean little place, owned by 2 danes; Frank and Torben, they built the house them selves. They too run the bar "Tudo Mundo" on Broadway!
The rooms are tastfully decorated, and they serve a good breakfast. (when i was there, from 8-16.00!!) The...
Cafe Habana: Recommended
My boyfriend and I were surprised at the range of places to eat, it's rather varied, even though Canoa Quebrada is a small place. On the main street we found a good selection and quality. While we didn't try all of them Cafe Habana stood out for its freshness and quality. They also happen to own the hotel we stayed at - Pousada Iguana.

Freedom Bar: Fullmoon Party
Every Sunday nigth in Canoa they have an interesting party. Its call the Fullmoon Party; its at the beach, with some fire, and of course, reggae music. Always full of people from everywhere; not only tourist, there are many locals too that always talk to you with smiles on...
Canoa Quebrada literally means broken canoe, but it could be broken down civilisation, cute in small doses. Lots of drugs here, you are almost a "square" if you say no!!
Absolutely exotic miles and miles of beach if you drive from Fortaleza the drive is wonderful, most of it actually on the beach and you may see the odd (literally) fisherman and that's about all.
Quite an experience.
Strangely while I was here I saw a Miss Model World competition, fascinating stuff for a place that is quite literally the back of beyond.

Football world cup
Every year in january there is a football world cup, where all the different foreigners and a team of brazilians play against each other.
It's taken very serious by some of the people living there and should be well worth seeing.
