Getting there

Getting to Fotaleza, Ceará, Brasil

By Air

It is possible to fly to Pinto Martins International Airport - Fortaleza International Airport (IATA: FOR) from anywhere in Brazil, and there are flights also from Europe particularly Italy and Portugal.  From other parts of the world, including the USA, you would change in Rio or San Paulo.

It is a 30 minute taxi ride from the airport to the Praia do Futuro but of course most people will be going not straight to the beach, but to a hotel in the city, very probably on Avenida Beira Mar which lines the north city beaches of the city; Iracema, Meireles and Mucuripe.

 Prices of taxi rides from the airport are not by the meter but have a fixed price.  This is subject to your personal negotiation with the taxi driver.  The fixed price is R$ 48.00 or R$ 33.00 depending on if this is a Flag 2 or Flag 1 time or day.

 

Getting to Praia do Futuro

By Road

Take a taxi, the paths to walk there from the rest of the city are long and confusing and pass areas which are less safe.  Always use a hire taxis a car with driver rather than use public transport. 

From Av.  Beira Mar it is only a short drive of 10 to 20 minutes depending on traffic and exactly where you are starting from and your destinations.  Remember to negotiate with your taxi driver before departing, or ask your hotel concierge to assist with this.
