In Recife, see the old city and the Olaria de Brennard, a unique ceramic sculpture studio and park. Even a child would also be captivated by this sculpture park.
Spend some time also in neighboring Olinda, a charming collection of Colonial era buildings with great views and lots of interesting crafts to buy. Try to find the exhibit of huge Carnaval puppets, so your son can have his picture taken with them. Maybe take a taxi to the top of the steep hill and walk down, easier for a kid.

In Porto da Galinhas, take a jangada ride out to the reefs to swim in the pools there.

Travel Tips for Recife

Brennand's Glass Factory

by solopes

My professional world is... glass. And, being in Brennand's property, I noticed a typical glass factory, that, obviously, I would like to visit, but it's closed to public, and I had no time to prepare a professional request for the visit. But I was sorry, because glass is a much more spectacular product than ceramics. And they know it, for sure!

Big Tree

by bambino36

I remember that next to this wide tree there was an inscription saying that it was planted by a portuguese navigator (probably Pedro Álvares Cabral), however I doubt it...
Anyway the tree is a baobab, sacred tree in Senegal and was mentioned by Antoine de Saint Exupery in his book The little Prince.

Welcome to Recife

"Where Capibaribe and Beberibe meet the Atlantic"

Recife is the capital of Pernambuco State. It´s the 9th biggest city in Brazil and the 3rd in Northeast region (after Salvador and Fortaleza). According to the last official data, it has over 1.4 million inhabitants.

The city center ("Recife Antigo" or Old Recife) has some beautiful colonial buildings. Not as many as in Olinda, Recife´s older sister and neighbor city, but still worth a visit. Another touristic attraction are the beaches around the city, such as Porto de Galinhas (heading south) and Itamaracá (heading north).

Pernambucanos (people born in Pernambuco State) are a very proud people. Sometimes it´s a little irritating as they seem to think that everything about Recife is the best ever. They say that, in Recife, Capibaribe and Beberibe rivers join to give birth to the Atlantic Ocean. As I have many friends there, I just got used to it...
There´s also an interesting rivalry between Salvador, Recife and Fortaleza, the biggest cities in Northeast. I recommend asking a pernambucano about these cities. I´m sure you´ll laugh a lot when you hear the answers.

Welcome to Recife!!! Enjoy!!!

Beautiful Brazilian Venice

"Fun and leisure all year round"

Recife was beyond my expectation. Lovely islands, ( Recife, Santo Antonio, Boa Vista) many rivers, lots of bridges counting one of the most original and lively Carnivals of the world. History is written everywhere on colonial old houses, in various museums and streets.

Citade Antigo is the place to go on Sundays. Life starts early in the afternoon to end in the wee hours of the night. Bars, cafés, terrases, little souvenir shops, handicrafts, and, of course.... music all the time. One can dance or enjoy the bands that pass through Boa Jesu street playing their maracatu music.

Recife is crossed by two big rivers: Capibaribe and Bebveribe.
Today it is the biggest cultural, services and leisure center of the Northeast, beside being the 3rd gastronomic pole of the country.
The food is simply divine. And the Boa Viagem beach (7km long) offers snacks to remember for ever.

"Carnivals and Festivities."

Having been there in December and in January, I could witness the arrival of the New Year greeted on Boa Viagem beach. I could see it from a l6 floor apartment: first lots of shows of many artists, orchestras of frevo topped with a rain of fireworks that lasted 30 minutes.

Then in the middle of January, came the famous Recife Folia. The groups were practicing just in front the apartment of my friends. Evening activities were starting at the fall of dusk till early morning.

I got the feeling that the people were always in the midst of festivities. The shows of lights along the sea shore are touching and very special

The apogee happends during the presentation of the Galo da Madrugada, the largest and more lively block of the wold responsible for the official opening of the carnival in the city.

All converge to the Patio do Terço in the glorious Night of the Silent Drums, one of the most beautiful encounters of maracatus of the state. Unfortunately, I was not there to witness it.

It is merrymaking all year round: Semana Santa, Abril pro Rock, Sao Joao...until the vacations arrive and everything begins again.

"Sandy Beaches"

Seven kms of sandy beach and coral reef runs through Piedade, Candeias and Boa Viagem.
