Since Fortaleza International Airport is growing more then fast, with up to 15 - 20% every year, and on top the FIFA world cup 2014 & Olympics 2016 calling on Fortaleza bringing even more visitors to the region, there is a now an urgent need to increase the passenger capacity at Fortaleza Airport.
But this is difficult, since the airport of Fortaleza is located in the middle of the center.
But to solve this problem, now a clever and efficient solution has been found, creating an other airport: Caucaia Cargo Airport.
The new airport takes over all cargo flights from Fortaleza International Airport, so that Airport can again sufficiently grow.
The area for the new airport has already been decided, located just outside Caucaia, the neighbour city of Fortaleza, with direct connections to the Trans-Nordestino Railway running to Brazil's South and also the Port of Pecem.
The NE of Brazil, the state of Ceará, enjoys an extremely pleasant climate.
To be more specific, we herewith list the key ingredients for you:
sunshine, approx. 3.000 hrs per year or > 8 hrs, every day!
an air temperature, approx. 26 - 32 degr. C., every day!
a water temperature, approx. 26 28 degr. C., every day!
trade winds, between 15 to 25 knots, every day!
no mosquito's, they can't stand the winds, a single day!
Due to these facts, Ceará is so much appreciated by all visitors:
the heat is not felt as heat at all.
Ceará is also called "Terra da Luz" or "the Land of light", because the sun is shining all day.

Under Lula (Mr. Luiz Ignacio "lula" da Silva, Brazil's former president who led the country from 2002 - 2008) Brazil has enjoyed already for many years a very steady and stable leadership.
Democratically chosen, with more then 61% of all votes! An unknown result of elections in almost any country worldwide.
But also the labor party's successor, president Dilma Youssef, voted subsequently in 2010, is ready to lead the country in a similar way.
The country is now strongly rising, year after year with impressive figures.
If you are considering to become an owner of Brazilian real estate and want to buy a house, home or apartment, then an important thing to consider for you is the rental possibilities which are more then easy.
For an example of how foreign owners do this in a clever way at Ilha do Guajirú, please have a look at www.thewindvillage.net
Here, in the Windvillage Waterfront Bungalows, Garden & Spa!, various overseas owners jointly rent out apartments online, with returns of up to 35% per annum!
A very welcome income, a more then sound calculation!
Basically, the returns on rental are very profitable, because there is a general lack of beds in many area's, like Ilha do Guajirú, where the tourists wanting to visit exceed the number of existing beds on the island.

GUAJIRU NORTH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT OPENING
A new International airport will be opened soon in the island's area:
Guajirú North International Airport!
Located at no more then 30 car minutes away from this rising tourist destination, the airport is moving forward with maximum speed:
Construction costs in Brazil are still incredible low.
Low, since the cost of labor is still very cheap. The reason behind it is the
minimum salary, fixed at R$ 545.- or Euro 235.- per month.
If you realize that 2/3 of a construction is labor costs, then you can count yourself the total difference!
But construction in Brazil is not only cheap because of labor.
The constructions materials are also low. Wood, sand, cement & steel:
Brazil has more then enough of it!
To give you an idea of how total construction costs turn out to in Brazil, please see the table herewith below:
R$ 400.-/m2 to build simple and basic
R$ 650.-/m2 to build nice and well done
R$ 900.-/m2 to build classy and chique
(the level of www.thewindvillage.net: see the movie!)
NO NATURAL DISASTERS
While a lot of countries face natural disasters and problems, in Brazil you don't run a single risk of this kind.
No storms, no earthquakes, no floods, no typhoons, no tsunami's, etc
ILHA DO GUAJIRU ROADS PAVED
After the island access road of Ilha do Guajirú was paved by end 2010, during 2011 also the island interior roads & square have been renovated and improved!
For an impression of the result, please have a look on the photo below.
The municipality of Itarema is making some real speed with improvements and support to what's going on for some years now at this spot.
They very much appreciate the uprising tourism, and support all entrepreneurs with a fast emission of required (building) licenses, so they can start running the businesses with no delay!
AMAZING BEACHFRONT PLOTS
If you visit Ceará for the first time, you will be surprised by the beauty of the beaches you will find.
Un-comparable to how they look back at home, snow white, with palm trees and turquoise lukewarm water
Buy a beachfront plot for only Euro 50.000.- or create and build your holiday home for only Euro 200.-/per constructed m2!
In Ceará it is all possible, here people realize their long kept dream.
Between all these positive developments, of course the Brazilian currency is meanwhile going strong'.
The "Real", no more a penny money against any other worldwide currency!
Coming from 1 Euro = 3,70 Real back in 2003, the rate meanwhile reached 2,30 (June 2011), an improvement of almost 50%!
But also against the Us dollar: the tendency is always the same.
It may be clear to you, that with such strong currency, the power and influence of Brazil in the financial world is getting a lot stronger.

THE FIFA WORLD CUP SOCCER 2014
In 2014, the FIFA world cup football is organized by the country that plays the sport at almost every corner: BRAZIL!
Brazil, famous for many FIFA world cup football victory's, in fact most of all countries!, is very proud on this prestigious award.
And all necessary preparations are meanwhile running at full speed to meet the necessary deadlines!
The cities that will host the competitions, including Brazil's 4th largest city Fortaleza, are meanwhile reforming existing and building new stadiums to make sure they can receive all extra spectators.
The FIFA world cup and involved government budgets for improvement of infrastructure and facilities meanwhile already had a welcome side effect:
real estate values in Brazil started further lifting!
PAC INFRASTRUCTURE PROGRAM
Brazil, doing very well with it's booming economy, generating enormous income for the government, has meanwhile issued economic "boost" programs.
But the most impressive program of all is: THE PAC!
Or, the Programa de Aceleraçao de Crescimento = the Growth Acceleration Program.
The program, launched to boost and accelerate the economy and growth, is already well known all over Brazil and involves a total of Rs 503,9 Billion Reais (186,30 Billion Euro's!) of which approx Rs 58,3 Billion (Euro 21,59 Billion) is destined already only to the North East!
The funds involved are destined for infrastructure and spread out over the following areas:
The ingredients to invest here are simply perfect, go and visit the place, you will see it yourself.
UNDERPRICED REAL ESTATE
In Ceará and the North East of Brazil, real estate values are considerably underpriced.
Here, you find properties that cost only a fraction of what you would pay for it back at home!
The reason behind it is very simple: the area has only recently started to develop!
The results of Brazil's PAC program (new airports, ports, roads & highways) are simply not yet counted into it.
It is going so fast that the prices are basically walking behind
This is also what has happened at Ilha do Guajiru! The state highway CE 085, opened end 2008, improved the ways of getting there, but the prices took time to get adjusted.
This situation will now for the 2nd time repeat, with the opening of Guajirú North International Airport!
The prices, still 3 to 6x cheaper then those of Cumbuco and Jericoacoara, will rise and become more or less equal, it is only a matter of time.
If you follow the economics a little bit worldwide, for sure you will have heard about the so called BRIC countries.
Brazil, Russia, India & China!
Or, the countries with the strongest economies during the next 10 years to come!
Their fast growth, strong economic foundations and large populations make them becoming the world's most promising markets.
By 2041, the combined BRIC economies are expected to outstrip the G6!
Only Brazil already maintains foreign reserves in excess of US$ 200 billion
Already the world's biggest producer of almost any farm product, Brazil is the fourth biggest manufacturer of cars and within 5 years will become the world's 3rd largest exporter of oil!
While Brazil's economy is rising, the income of all Brazilians is also noticeably going up!
The middle class starts growing and is starting to get some money!
The results can be noticed everywhere in the country.
Restaurants are booked, shops break records, car sales are going up
But also the people start buying houses and real estate, who does not want to create a home for their family?
PECEM PORT & PETROCHEMICAL INDUSTRY
Thanks to the funds of Brazil's PAC program, the capacity of the Port of Pecem can also be sharply be increased.
In fact, the capacity will more then double !
Another strategic move into the right direction: Brazil is taking it's business to create more and better infrastructure very serious.
But also a complete petrochemical industry will arise, the construction of it has already started!
Pecem Port will need homes now for 300.000 workers, the effect of it is already noticed in most surrounding villages: Taiba, Cumbuco, Tabuba and Icaraí. Almost any rentable house has meanwhile been taken.
If you appreciate taking a visa in this attractive country, then please note down that getting a permanent visa in Brazil is not difficult at all.
If you invest min. Usd 50.000.- in Brazil, a permanent visa is granted right away!
Brazil is welcoming foreign visitors with open arms, is trying to make the arrival of them with hard currency very attractive
LARGE FOREIGN CAPITAL INFLOW
For a few years now, large foreign overseas capital is flowing into the area of Ceará and North East Brazil.
With the first results already more then visible!
Ilha do Guajirú, one of the biggest projects of all and worldwide famous in no time, was initiated with large foreign investment money
But also another example can be given: Vila Gale's all inclusive hotel in Cumbuco or the Orixas hotel in Flexeiras, both are the result of overseas investments.
Welcome developments, bringing more tourists to the state of Ceará.
But also small scale projects are financed, by private persons and investors.
Houses, homes, apartments & pousada's. Or watersport centers, beachclubs, kite- and windsurfing schools.
With a good future for all: demand is simply growing !

Almost in line with any country in Europe.
Why? Because there is no more a serious lack of money!

If you visit Brazil and arrive at the airport, the first thing you will notice is that the Brazilians are very friendly!
Relaxed, 'no stress', and always interested to help and communicate with you with a smile.
