Famous for its Samba dance, biodiversity, and footballing success, Brazil is one of the world’s most exciting countries to live in. Though it has hundreds of amazing cities, the one city in Brazil that doesn’t receive enough attention has to be Fortaleza.

While just about everyone knows Rio de Janeiro and to a lesser extent São Paulo, discussions about Fortaleza often fall by the wayside. This is unfortunate, especially considering most Brazilians feel Fortaleza is Brazil’s most desirable city to live in!

It’s hard to argue with beautiful beaches, attractive colonial architecture, and an amazing football scene that transcends both language and culture.

While Fortaleza’s high quality of life is its obvious draw, any modern city with a population of 2.6 million people is going to have business opportunities as well. Apart from being one of the most important commercial centers in northern Brazil, Fortaleza also has an on the rise tech scene.

Here are a few reasons why:

— Fortaleza has some of the fastest average internet speeds in South America.

— Fortaleza is situated in a desirable time zone (3 hours ahead of the US East Coast and just 2 hours behind London).

— The city’s Wave Accelerator is an excellent place to network as well as receive funding, and hands-on support

Oh, and we almost forgot to mention… Fortaleza has some excellent coworking spaces. Mostly concentrated around the Centro district of the city, Fortaleza’s coworking scene is young, but thriving. Here are a few coworking spaces in Fortaleza we think you’ll enjoy working at.
