Fortaleza Beach Park
The Fortaleza Beach Park complex is on Fortaleza's coast. Its main attraction is its enormous Aqua Park, with waterslides, waterfalls, and an artificial river, although you can choose to base yourself at one of the Park's on-site hotels.
The complex is a combination of resort, hotels, restaurants, shops, a sailing raft museum, water park and beach. Over 700,000 people visit the Aqua Park every year, which is the largest and best-equipped water park in Latin America.
You can surf in a wave swimming pool and, if you are adventurous, try out the Insano (Insane) water slide. Listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the highest water slide, its 135 ft (41 m) is the equivalent to the height of a 14-story building. With the angle and slope, the slide provides extremely rapid descents at speeds of 65 mph (105 km/h)!
There are plenty of water play attractions for the kids too.
Located in Porto das Dunas, Fortaleza Beach Park is a 16km (9mi) drive from Fortaleza.
