Aracaju Things to Do

  • Sailing with the locals

    Ilha de Santa Luiza is a place, where life of the local people is still as simple as it is used to be a long time ago... You can always ask somebody to go sailing or even fishing with him. An interesting experience!

  • Go Surfing

    What about surfing somewhere far away from masses of tourists? I found Ilha de Santa Luzia a perfect place. River Sergipe separates the city from the island which is accessible by boat from Aracaju.

  • Sailing to Ilha de Goré

    By the local road N°438 at 19 kilometers to the south of Aracaju is the small village of Mosqueiro, rent a small boat (30 reais round trip two persons) to sail the river Vaza Barras and Santa María to the Ilha de Goré (Goré Island), it isn't far, just 15 minutes by boat. With the low tide you can enjoy a cold beer beside the beach and some...

  • Beach, the classic option never fails...

    Almost the whole Atlantic coastline of Brasil is plenty of beautiful beaches, and Aracaju isn't an exception. White or golden sand, when you step the shore and looks to the north and after to the south, your sight will be lost in the inmensity of the sandline, in addition to this marvel, remember that here the summer lasts 365 days at year...

  • Carnaval in advance...

    The most spreaded tradition tell us that the paradigma of carnaval is in Rio de Janeiro, in february.

    In Central Market you can buy regional stuffs from food to handcrafts. You can take advantage to have a lunch and avoid walk in the city during the most hot hours of the day.

  • Go there for the beer

    There’s this brand new Bar/ Restaurant, called Ferrero Café. It features a very nice décor and it’s very comfortable.

Aracaju Nightlife

  • A place to rock and roll

    THE best place to go in town....People generally gets there by 11:00pm and the party always go till 4 or 5:00am.Besides the live music they still have a disco and a lounge on the second floor...Don't miss it.... Casual. I mean, there are no rules concerning clothes. It's ok if you go on your jeans and t-shirt.

  • Forró nights, crazy nights

    If you read my restaurant tip about Cariri you should have an idea about it, behind the main room of the restaurant there is a dancing, live music with very good local bands, almost exclusively forró style. The forró is a tipical music style of the northeast of Brasil, extremely sensual, both dancers very tightened, cheek to cheek and moving very...

  • Before the real party

    There are 2 major clubs (Tequila Café and Colisseo) here in Aracaju, the place you go for drinking and dancing. But before showing up in one of those places, we are used to stop by a bar and have some beers first. You can have both bottled beer and the one from the tap, which we call “Chopp”.Chopp 13 is one of the places I would suggest for a stop...


Aracaju Transportation


    One of my greatest pleasures was the sailing of the river Santa María an Vaza Barras. Transportation from the small piers of Mosqueiro to Ilha de Goré and others are supported by powered canoes. You can rent it for a round trip to your destination for 30 reais or less (about 12 dollars) for two persons. Practical service with the invaluable bonus...


    The (right) choice of my company for my air transportation to Aracajú was Varig, almost the national airline of Brasil. From Buenos Aires to Río de Janeiro or Sao Paulo and later a transfer to Aracajú. A long flight indeed (Brasil is really gigantic) but the services onboard were fine and the fleet is modern and safe. Varig has flights to/from all...

    by Orkaena Written Jun 20, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The locals have a sui generis flea market but... of meals and fruits. La Feira.
    Here you can get absolutely everything, from cebu or pork meat to wild fruits from the jungle, passing by sea and river fishes and crustaceous, tisanas for illness as stomach, hart or spells, love included.
    The crowd, the sounds, and aromas are extraordinaries. At all, you can eat some foods including. Cheap, exotical, stunning.
    Just take a taxi and say "A la feira por favor"
    That's all you need.
