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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Recife: Porto de Galinhas (Vila de Porto de Galinhas Beach, Nata Artesanato, & more) and Carneiros Beach (in Tamandare). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Instituto Ricardo Brennand, gain insight at Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand, kick back and relax at Boa Viagem Beach, and get to know the fascinating history of Recife Antigo.
