    first you need to drill a hole with a masonry drill bit. Then use a molly and it into the building. The molly will keep the screws secure to hold the brackets.

    Use a masonry bit to drill to hole, then insert an anchor made specifically for stucco/cement

    Have you tried a spring tension rod. No holes required.

    Use command hooks. They make them for outdoor use that will stick to brick and stucco. Much easier than having to drill and no holes left when you want to take down.

    Tension rod should work!

    If your rod is going wall to wall I used a closet rod holder on each wall and then cut metal conduit to the correct length. I hung my outdoor grommet drapes on it slide easily open and closed. The aluminum conduit does not rust so it can stay year round.

    Tension rod might be okay for standard length curtains that aren't weighted, but if you're running a tall and extra wide curtain, I'd recommend drilling with the masonry bit as others have suggested. You can then then pack in some wet stucco that you can buy in small 8 oz containers at Lowe's and then insert the screws and bracket into position. Hold it in place with a light duty clamp if needed until it dries. It dries gray, so you'll have to paint over it to match the surrounding color.
