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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Vila de Porto de Galinhas Beach and Praia de Tamandare. Centro Historico and Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Boa Viagem will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Recife: Olinda (Shopping Patteo Olinda, Casa Caiada Beach, & more), Praia de Calhetas (in Cabo de Santo Agostinho) and Porto de Galinhas (Muro Alto Beach, Serrambi Beach, & more). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia dos Carneiros, pause for some serene contemplation at Madre Deus Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue, and see the interesting displays at Museu Cais do Sertao.
