WHAT I THINK: The Fish Market should definitely be on everyone’s “to do” list when they visit Fortaleza! It offers a wide variety of seafood, which you can personally pick out and have prepared the way you like it! If you are not sure how you want it, you can never go wrong having it sauteed in butter, lime and garlic. You also get one of the most enviable seaside views of the city while you enjoy your feast. Be careful though, because time will get away from you fast at this place, while you kick back with some seafood, bear, and the ocean view.

IS IT WORTH IT? YES! YES! AND YES!

HOW TO GET THERE: Taxi, Uber, or walking (if you are staying on Beira Mar during your visit) . Taxis tend to be available in the area, but download the SINDITAXI PASSAGEIROS APP or take an Uber just in case you don’t see any on the streets.

ADDRESS Avenida Beira Mar 3479
