Fortaleza Taxi Service Fares to Destinations Beyond the City Limits:

For Fortaleza Beaches and other destinations beyond the city limits you have to negotiate with the driver before taking off. The drivers have a list that includes most destinations and their distance in kilometers from Fortaleza.

To calculate any fare. The local rate is R$ 2.00 per kilometer. So if your destination is 50 Km from Fortaleza. You have to include the drivers return trip whether he is coming back with you or not.

100 km (round trip) x R$ 2.00 = a fare between approximately R$ 200.00

As you get further from the city the rate per kilometer becomes less. Yet, the greater distances make the trip by taxi less practical.

Canoa Quebarda a very popular destination is 167 Km from Fortaleza, 334 km (round trip). The trip takes 2 1/2 hours if you don't stop. A good rate is R$ 300.00 one-way aprox. R$ 2.00 per/ km.

Jericoacoara-Jijoca is 320 km from Fortaleza. From Jijoca you need a 4x4 vehicle to take
you the last 20 km to Jericoacoara. The 320 km one-way going rate is R$ 550.00. R$ 1.56
per/km. A very long and tiring trip by taxi.

For Jericoacoara I would recommend the Fortaleza Airport / Hotel Vans which depart from the airport or any hotel in Fortaleza daily. One way is only R$ 75.00 and includes the last leg of the trip by 4 wheel drive to Jericoacoara (less expensive than the bus and gets there faster. No payment is necessary to reserve but you do need to book your seats in advance. For more information or to make a reservation fill out the contact form.
