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 some cultural insight at Recife Antigo and Instituto Ricardo Brennand. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue and Centro Historico. Get out of town with these interesting Recife side-trips: Olinda (Church and Monastery of Sao Bento & Se Cathedral), Porto de Galinhas (Muro Alto Beach, Pontal de Maracaipe, & more) and Carneiros Beach (in Tamandare). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Capela Dourada, engage your brain at Espaco Ciencia, see the interesting displays at Embaixada de Pernambuco, and gain insight at Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand.

Expect a daytime high around 35°C in April, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
