State of Alagoas travel guide

4.3
Beaches · Reefs · Outdoor Activities
Land of the Marshals
Nicknamed "Land of the Marshals" as the birthplace of the country's first two presidents, State of Alagoas makes most of its money from cattle ranching and the production and processing of sugarcane and coconuts. Overlooked by foreign visitors, the region remains largely agricultural in nature and features a relatively short coastline, at least by Brazilian standards. Despite or because of this, a vacation in State of Alagoas rewards visitors with countless chances to get a feel of the "real" Brazil, away from big crowds and modern resorts. Small history-soaked towns and quaint fishing villages top most State of Alagoas itineraries, offering plenty of opportunities to swim, sail, dive, sightsee, eat, and shop undisturbed by throngs of tourists.
