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.
Get out of town with these interesting Recife side-trips: Porto de Galinhas (Museu das Tartarugas - Ecoassociados, Pontal de Maracaipe, & more), Lookout Stone of Cogomelo (in Cabo de Santo Agostinho) and Praia dos Carneiros (in Tamandare). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Instituto Ricardo Brennand, stroll through Boa Viagem Beach, explore the galleries of Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Capela Nossa Senhora do Desterro.
