Last World Cup Football brought me to Brazil, which was one of the best experiences in life. Affordable accommodation was hard to find, definitely in the cities the matches were played. Following Holland I ended up in Fortaleza to see them play Mexico. All I knew about Fortaleza was that it was served by direct flights from Europe and therefore probably was a popular beach destination. The kilometers long boulevard and the high-rise hotels along this stretch were an example of the mass tourism. The city center of Fortaleza was not really appealing, though the beach was definitely worth a visit. Some really popular with locals, some hosted trendy beach clubs with live music. Although mass tourism conquered this city, There a many reasons to visit this region!
