Bus from Recife to Natal

by brownga

My friends and i need to get a bus from Recife to Natal from Jan 19 2008 and have to arrive by Jan 30 2008. I was wondering if anyone knows how long this will take, how much it will cost and if we should pre book or just any good information?

The drive from Recife to Natal is 4-5 hours depending on vehicle and road traffic. Not sure if one bus does the whole route, but you could hop up the coast from town to town, catching different buses as you go. There is a frequent flight between the two, or (as I live on an island in the area) I could arrange a driver to pick you up and take you there by car. Not actually that expensive - probably around $70/£35 dependant on how many of you.

One further thought occurs - Carnival is 1st-4th Feb next year. Do noy try to travel near these dates as the whole country goes ballastic, and so do the roads, prices, etc!!

Travel Tips for Recife

Ilha do amor.

by cachaseiro

A little bit south of Recife there is a small island called Ilha do amor.
It's an uninhabited island with a coconut plantation and a couple of empty beaches.
It's a nice place to go if you like to have a beach for yourself.
You are unlikely to meet other people than a couple of guys looking after the coconut plantation.
The only transport to the island is by fishing boat.
Get a local fisherman to take you over there and arrange a time to be picked up again.

Santo Antonia

I like to send many postcards. If you picked up the local paper in the last tip, use it to color your postcards by sending them in the language of the places you visit. I copy the headlines onto my postcards. Foreign newspapers are fairly easy to read, even if you do not speak the language. You may now get every word, but you can get the gist of the story so that you do not send anything disturbing "Three killed in motor accident". This is a fancy letterbox outside the Correios in Santo Antonio.

A big city that is off the beaten path

by kaloz

"Often Overlooked"

Recife (Pronounced Hey-Ceef-A) is a destination that many may have been to but I consider off the beaten path because those who travel here either spend their time at the famous beach, Boa Viagem, or in the hamlet of Olinda which is very charming. This leaves precious little time for Recife itself. Because of some canals near the shore, you may hear Recife referred to as the "Venice of Brasil" but I think these divides are more in the nature of "New York of Brasil" with different boroughs to visit on different islands.

"Boa Vista"

Across the Rio Capibaribe is the districts of Boa Vista and Coelhos. I had a brief visit to Boa Vista which is a bustling place with lots of people and lots of activity. Along the river you may see fishermen repairing their nets which is always a good photo op. Coming from a fishing village myself this scene is near and dear to my heart. Walking further inland, Boa Vista would be the heart of Recife with many businesses and museums and parks. It is a wonderful place to get lost in.

"Santo Antonio & Sao Jose"

I exchanged money (Cambio) and bought stamps (Correios = Post Office) in Santo Antonio which is at the tip of the island across from Boa Vista. Then went for a side trip to Olinda (Orinda). On the return I visited Sao Jose further down the island which was a more colorful section of town and I would say is the soul of Recife.

We were in Racife during, or actually, after Carnival. At least Carnival was over every place else in Brazil, but in Recife, it lasts for about five days longer! Everyone was still dancing in the streets, many streets closed, with police directing both people and traffic. It was amazing!
