Flights from San Francisco
San Francisco International Airport Information
The San Francisco International Airport (Highway 101 near the junction of Highway 380) is the primary commercial passenger airport serving San Francisco and the surrounding areas. The airport hosts most international and domestic airlines offering cheap flights from San Francisco. You can also use Orbitz.com to book an alternate flight out of Oakland International Airport (1 Oakland Drive, Oakland) or San Jose International Airport (2065 Airport Boulevard, San Jose).
Parking at San Francisco International Airport
San Francisco International's parking garages are a 10-minute walk or less from the gates, and there is free shuttle service from the long-term lots. Parking costs anywhere from $18 to $38 per day, depending on the option you choose. If you've used Orbitz.com to book your discount flights, you may have saved enough to justify spending the extra money to use the airport's valet parking service.
Ground Transportation Information
A taxi, limousine or shared-ride van to the airport will cost anywhere from $17 to $40. Factor in plenty of extra travel time for the 13-mile ride, as rush-hour traffic can be brutal. You can also use the public BART system or the SamTrans public bus service, both of which will cost you less than $10. Don't forget to use Orbitz.com before you leave to book a rental car in your destination city.
Restaurant Options at the Airport
The San Francisco airport has roughly 50 eateries where you can grab a coffee or have a light meal. Most of the restaurants and cafes are located within the terminals past the security checkpoint, but there are a few restaurants before you reach the security gates.

Buses cost less than $1 per trip and can be found on the underground floor of the airport. For more convenient transportation, you can hire a taxi on the ground floor of the airport.

Car rentals start at around $25 per day, with costs rising with the quality of the vehicle you wish to rent.
Fortaleza has a tropical climate, with high winds and humidity. A vacation planner should count on warm weather throughout the year. December and January are the warmest months, with temperatures reaching up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. February through May are cooler months, with temperatures below 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Since Fortaleza is located on the coast, tourists may enjoy visiting one of its many beaches, including Jericoacoara Beach and Cumbuco Beach. Those seeking a bit of culture should check out Jose de Alencar Theater and Metropolitana Cathedral.
