With excellent beaches in Pernambuco, I was surprised in most of the visited places by the absence of the usual commercial stalls. As a matter of fact, everything is sold in the beaches, but Porto de Galinhas was the only place where, walking in the streets, I felt that tourism is the main activity in town.
Small shops line the streets, and, maybe, that's connected (origin or consequence?) with the high Portuguese preference.
Favorite thing: It's incredible to see how these swamps grow side by side with the sea,everyone with its own vegetation and animals,I really recomend a visit to this site!
