Once the capital of Dutch Brazil, Recife has a history spanning back to 1537, when it was little more than a handful of fishing houses on the beach.
Explore Recife's surroundings by going to Porto de Galinhas (Museu das Tartarugas - Ecoassociados, Pontal de Maracaipe, & more) and Praia dos Carneiros (in Tamandare). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Instituto Ricardo Brennand, explore the world behind art at Museu de Arte Moderna Aloisio Magalhaes, gain insight at Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Cachakaria Destak.

Nowhere are the traditions of Brazil's African-background community as strong as in Salvador, the colorful, historical capital of Bahia state.
Start off your visit on the 27th (Thu): steep yourself in history at Santo Antonio da Barra Fort and Nautic Museum of Bahia, then pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja de Nosso Senhor do Bonfim, then enjoy breathtaking views from Elevator Lacerda, and finally wander the streets of Pelourinho. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sao Francisco Church and Convent, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia Farol da Barra, then see the interesting displays at Casa do Rio Vermelho, and finally don't miss a visit to Topazio.
