What You Can Expect

Canoa Quebrada from Fortaleza

Canoa Quebrada

Upon pickup at your hotel in Fortaleza, board your comfortable vehicle for the 95-mile (156-km) drive down the scenic Sol Nascente Highway to Canoa Quebrada. 

Arrive at your destination and notice how this village seems almost frozen in time. The locals are friendly, the pace is slow and there's a mystical ambiance about the place. Stroll the main street to visit the lively restaurants and bars, making sure to try some of the region's famous seafood dishes.

Opt to try one of the many beach-centric leisure activities offered, like a ride in a dune buggy, kite surfing or horseback riding. The area's stunning pink sand dunes provide a unique backdrop for endless photo ops. Visit a shrimp farm, swim in the protected bay or board a jaganda, or traditional sailing boat, for a cruise around the bay. 

If you're after relaxation, skip the activities, purchase a drink at one of the beach huts, and simply lounge on the sand at one of the beaches bordering the town. 

After a full 8-hour day discovering Canoa Quebrada's delights, return to Fortaleza for hotel drop-off.
