Caucaia is a Brazilian city in the state of Ceará of about 300,000 inhabitants.
Caucaia is close to the capital city of Fortaleza and is home to a state garden park. There is a market in the center of the town with fish, fruits, and souvenirs for the tourists. Caucaia can be reached by the train that departs from the center of the city by the Feiras in downtown. Buses depart to and from the city that can be accessed from Rodoviarias (bus stations).
At the center of the city sits a church. Masses are held throughout the week and many of the local people walk around the square at night. There are stalls with cheap "bon bons" (little candies) and other treats.
Caucaia has a rich Catholic heritage, with many other demoninations as well. A LDS Church is down the street from the center of town.
There are unlit areas to the south and tourists should stay in the center of town at night. The beaches to the north should also be avoided when dark settles in.
