Advantages of this brazilian tour:
Mixing some days of beach life with a visit to the world's biggest rainforest.
Fortaleza's surroundings have spectacular beaches, scarcely connected with the exterior world - Canoa Quebrada, Cumbuco, Morro Branco, Beach Park, Lagoinha, Iguape, Prainha, etc.
The Amazon is what everyone wonders but few experience: once in Manaus, you can enjoy local cruises, fishing, visit the natives, watch the local flora and fauna, see the encounter of the waters, the giant water lilies of the river, etc.
In Recife region you have spectacular beach resorts surrounded by dense palm tree groves, sand dunes, good animation, a peculiar music and a spectacular cuisine, based on lobster and other seafood.
You should extend the duration of the tour as much as you can, to avoid the fatigue of too many flights and airports transfers.
Just two days in each destination can be very tiring. The distances between these places are considerable.
