With such a good public transport system tourists really should not drive at Fortaleza. Those who attempt to actually have to have nerves of steel and an excellent sense of direction to deal with heavy traffic and confusing one-way streets. However, the ride is a good choice for local trips and visits to more distant beaches. While driving, you should be belted and extremely careful, while the door should be locked. Traffic in Fortaleza has its own laws and parking is always difficult and often nearly impossible at the center. The peak on weekdays is from 8:00 to 09:00 and again from 17:00 to 19:00, although in some areas the traffic jam is possible throughout the whole day. For visitors who come to Fortaleza for a whole day or a holiday, the best option is parking in a secure car park with surveillance. Parking is not expensive at all.
