Social groups for young people in Recife?

by davidson76

Hi there,

My sister is an American graduate student staying in Recife for another four months (she's studying Art History there), and I'm trying to find ways for her to engage in more social activities. It would be wonderful if there were some sort of social group that she could do fun things with. She's 31, and speaks extremely good Portuguese.

If any of you have any tips for us, please let me know!

Rede Globo is a CBS partnership. It besides uses to hard social work in Brazil.
Criança Esperança is the flagship from Rede Glogo. It helps abandoned childhood.
I believe your sister will love it since Rede Globo is a big TV broadcasting here. I will paste some links to you:

Travel Tips for Recife

Fishing from the reef

by solopes

The open water is dangerous, and no swim is allowed past the reef, in Boa Viagem. In low tide, it's easy to walk on the reef, and some locals use to capture some fish from it. And, by what I saw, sometimes big catch!

Near to Recife is Porto de Galinhas, a resort-town.

Porto de Galinhas means Port of Chickens in Portuguese. Why chickens? Well, back in the 1880s, after slavery was banned, the bad bad plantation owners of this region still imported Africans from West Africa. But of course, they could not go out right and call them 'slaves' now. They used a codeword - 'chickens' to pass the message on that a shipment of slaves had arrived. This place was the port where the 'chickens' were imported.

Now, everywhere around the touristy little town are statues of chickens carved out of tree trunks. This is the typical Brazilian kitsch so fancied by the Brazilian Tourism Board. For example, the roundish, blue Telemar telephone booths found all over the country are sometimes transformed into certain symbols typical of the region. In Salvador, there are coconut and berimbau telephone booths. In Pantanal, there are macaw and cayman telephone booths. In Olinda, there are umbrella telephone booths (one of their traditional dances involved umbrellas). And here in Porto de Galinhas, there are chicken telephone booths.

The beach resort town is also famous for the natural swimming pools formed by corals and rocks near the beach which at low-tide, one could head out there for little swims or to feed the fishes in the various swimming pools.

You could go to the pools in a 'jangada'. This is a flat boat (almost looking like a raft) with a sail with some benches set on them. Tourists pay about R8 for the 'jangada' guy to navigate them out to the swimming pools.

Or you could walk out there when it is low-tide.

The natural swimming pools are really lovely, you can sit way out there on these rocks and watch the pools of fishes (if the water is clear). Be care of the sea urchins.

Governor's Palace

by solopes

Also called Palacio do Campo das Princesas, this palace is, as expected, one of the most imposing buildings in Recife. Created in 1841 to replace a Dutch palace, it faces a beautiful garden with a famous African tree that is a rarity in Brazil - a Baobab.

RECIFE, my brazilian hometown

by cachaseiro

"And the economic center of North East Brazil."

I have spend almost a year in Recife doing a little work and a lot of partying with my good freinds.
If you are tired of Rio but still wants a big city with a lively beach, then Recife is not a bad place to go.
It can seem like just another big ugly city at first, but it really has a great cultural scene and it´s a very vibrant city.

"Recife has a nice beach suburb."

Boa viagem is the place to stay in Recife.
It has a very nice beach front and even if it´s not very suitable for swimming (due to undercurrents and sharks) it´s a very cool place to hang out as it has a great social scene.
It´s kinda like Ipanema or Copacabana in rio, but just a little more laid back.
