What area to stay if I want to do these 3 things?

We want to:

- rent ATVs to ride on the dunes;

- chill on the beach with drink service;

- enjoy some nightlife with bars/live music.

Beautiful scenery and beach front location are important. The ATV thing is a must for one day, even if we have to travel to a nearby beach (not Jericoacoara, though, I gave up on that due to the long drive).

We're traveling as a couple, going in August for 4 days/3 nights. I speak Portuguese, if that matters.

Obrigada in advance!

in Fortaleza itself? that does not exist...

beaches in Fortaleza itself are not great to start with... we use Fortaleza as a base for day trips to the surrounding areas...

"best" beach in town is Futuro (but not a great area to stay).... better area to stay is Meireles, but beach there is not good...

Meireles will be close to neighborhoods like Aldeota and Varjota, where you can find some nice restaurants (ask at hotel).

maybe instead fly to Fortaleza and go straight from the airport to one of the beaches OUTSIDE town... see if any of these appeals to you: Aquiraz; Cumbuco; Canoa Quebrada (but they are much smaller places)... they are closer than Jeri...

We spent a few nights in Beberibe last year. It’s a small beach town 75 km SE of Fortaleza. You can get there by taxi/Uber or public bus. We chose the latter option; pretty straightforward and comfortable.

It’s a beautiful beach, with a protected stretch without construction thanks to the Monumento Natural das Falésias de Beberibe: https://www.tripadvisor.com.br/Attraction_Re…

Beach service, yes

ATV rides in the dunes, yes

Parties / live music, not sure. Probably only on weekends when lots of people descend on the town and during vacation periods.
