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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Recife: Shrine of Nossa Senhora dos Prazeres (in Jaboatao dos Guararapes), Porto de Galinhas (Cachacaria e Pimentaria Tio Gilson, Projeto Hippocampus, & more) and Praia dos Carneiros (in Tamandare). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Instituto Ricardo Brennand, take an in-depth tour of Museu da Cidade do Recife - Forte das Cinco Pontas, kick back and relax at Boa Viagem Beach, and browse the exhibits of Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand.

To find ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Recife trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 34°C in December, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
