    Rainy season and general info

    by Tamashin Written Jun 7, 2008

    Favorite thing: Not to dampen your spirit but dont forget you are coming to JP at the height of the rainy season. As a general rule, it rains during the night and peters out in the morning.

    On the subject of websites, there is a brand new website called

    which is solely devoted to everything, Joao Pessoa. It is regularly updated and the "whats on where" is probably the most comprehensive in Brasil.

    The site deals with all aspects and even has a forum.

    Fondest memory: Another nice memory is the view of Joao Pessoa from the viewing point near the Bagaço restaurant

    Everything you ever wanted to know about J P

    by Tamashin Updated Jun 7, 2008

    Favorite thing: I think your questions are very reasonable. It depends on where you would like to live. If you were to consult the "neighbourhoods" section of the

    website then we would have a better idea of what you could get for you money. However, US$300 is aiming for the top end of the market.
    There are all sorts of packages with OI which will more than cater for your phone/mobile/internet needs. I allow R$10 for every taxi journey within the city bounds and R$20 to the outer bairros.
    However, if you log on the above site and post on the forum, I will send you A "no holds barred" message with all the information in detail. More than you could ever use. We want you to get the best out of this wonderful city which is why the "whats on" guide is second to non in Brasil. We even know where the bike shops and clubs are :)

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Joao Pessoa is watching the sunset from the balconies of Hotel Globo, infinitely better than Jacare.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: A little bit far from João Pessoa, in the edge of Paraiba beach there are some bars where you an spot such a gorgeous sunset at Jacaré Beach.

    You can have dinner in one of the bars built on the river, the surroundings are very wild and you can here live music as well.

    When the sun falls down, you can even hear the Ravel's Bolero performed by a nice musician in a saxophone!

    Fondest memory: My friend Diego who also works for the tourism office of the city took me there and we had a great time together. for sure i can see he is enrmously proud of his land, and João Pessoa is really a place that you should consider in your holidays in Brazil!
