Much better than Fortaleza, the city it`s calm and great to relax. At night there is a small ville called Broadway where there are a lot of restaurantes, and bars.

We loved Canoa. It is a small little place with great beaches and a bustling night life. The downtown area is super cute and it has a few good restaurants to go to. We really enjoyed the local "barracas" and it is a wonderful place to rest (or be active if you so chose to).

If you are in Fortaleza for a week, take an excursion and come to see Canoa Quebrada. It is 180 km from Fortaleza in a more or less good road (bad at near Canoa). It is a beach you must visit if you are for a week in Fortaleza. If you have only one day to spend, take an excursion... More

Never a dull moment here.Everyone can have fun here.Both locals and tourists,domestic and international put away their barriers and just roam in the sun and play on the beach. There are lots of regional food available.Fish is the preferred meat here. In addition to the beach area there are many bars and clubs in the village above. Lots of night... More

Well if you like beach buggies - this is THE place for you. They are everywhere!! Canoa is a lovely little place with lovely beaches and lovely restaurants. When you are taken to Canoa, say, on a coach trip, you are heavily steered towards particular Barracas that all very, busy, efficient but more expensive than the local rivals. Their trade... More
