Praia do Futuro
A perfect beach for swimming and bathing, it is devoid of reefs and corals near the shore. The restaurants (barracas) provide food, chairs and parasol. It is not a crowded beach compared to other beaches in Fortaleza which makes it potentially unsafe at odd hours. But other than that, it is a nice place to unwind .
From the COPACABANA FORT, we will head to the CORCOVADO MOUNTAIN, by car, driving pass the TIJUCA NATIONAL PARK, considered the world's largest urban forest inside a city's limits and visit the CHRIST REDEEMER STATUE, from where we will enjoy one of the most beautiful and breathtaking views of the city.Back on the way, as we drive down, we will halt by an unmissible stop at DONA MARTA's view point.
We will start at around 9am at the LEBLON VIEW POINT where you can taking beautiful pictures of the breathtaking sights of LEBLON & IPANEMA beaches. I call this start "Manu's welcome drink view point", because it's here that I usually take people to "get into the city's mood", as we sip a delicious sweet and chilled non-alcoholic famous Rio de Janeiro drink.Then, we'll drive along Rio's beach side to see the famous LEBLON, IPANEMA & COPACABANA beaches, also stopping at the historical and beautiful COPACABANA FORT, from where we can have the prettiest ground view of the SUGAR LOAF MOUNTAIN and COPACABANA BEACH. It will truly be your best memory of your Rio trip!
