If you are coming to Brazil, please do not go to this city its very dangerous even at daylight, go to other cities like Vitoria, Blumenau, Florianopolis and Joinville, they are way safer

I lived in Fortaleza for many years, if you are a tourist, you are alright, if you live in a nice area, you're good, not as bad as people say, but you need to watch out where you go, avoid slams as much you can during the night.

the Americans say Detroit and Chicago are dangerous but they look like a joke if come here to Fortaleza. The city is in ruins, robberies happen during daylight, the police is poorly armed and powerless to deter the powerful drug cartels that dominate all of the country, if you can NEVER COME TO BRAZIL
