Recife

— 6 nights

Brazilian Venice

Once the capital of Dutch Brazil, Recife has a history spanning back to 1537, when it was little more than a handful of fishing houses on the beach.
Change things up with these side-trips from Recife: Porto de Galinhas (Casa Jerimum, Nata Artesanato, &more) and Praia dos Carneiros (in Tamandare). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Ricardo Brennand Institute, steep yourself in history at Cais do Imperador, gain insight at Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue.

Paradise of Waters
