The southern part of Fortaleza remains largely undiscovered by foreign travelers, yet it's a favored destination among Brazilians from the states of Rio Grande do Norte and southern Ceará.

Much greener than the north and offering a diverse array of landscapes, this region is home to natural wonders that are truly worth exploring.

During each of our trips to Brazil, we take the time to discover new places that are still unknown to us, in order to share them with you. This time, it's a 4x4 or buggy expedition through the states of Ceará and Rio Grande do Norte.


Discover Brazil in a 4x4 or buggy is the best possible way, given the vicissitudes of often very damaged roads. Moreover, these states are preserved from mass construction and tourism, unlike southern Brazil. Their beaches are still wild; it would be a shame not to take advantage of these majestic panoramas that resemble the beginning of the world.


You don't have to be a sailing water sports enthusiast to appreciate these panoramas, but if you are, you'll be pleasantly surprised! The wind blows as strongly here as in the north, but not necessarily at the same time. The windy season runs from January to March, providing an opportunity to extend your stay or come enjoy the sun after the holiday season.

We have put together an itinerary for you that includes beaches, dunes, mangroves, and crystal-clear waters!
