Situated at the very eastern tip of the Americas, Joao Pessoa is indeed, as its nickname suggests, "the city where the sun rises first." Known for its exceptional integration with nature, the city ranks as the greenest capital in Brazil, with countless parks and even an Atlantic rainforest reserve within its bounds.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Joao Pessoa: Lucena Beach (in Lucena), Praia da Pipa (Baia dos Golfinhos, Off-Road Tours, &more) and Conde (Circuito Internacional Paladino, Tabatinga Beach, &more). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Tambau Beach, stroll through Picaozinho - Embarcacao Pirata, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja Sao Francisco, and examine the collection at Cultural Center Sao Francisco.

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Porto de Galinhas (Casa Jerimum, Piscinas Naturais de Porto de Galinhas, &more), Quatro Cantos Beach (in Ilha de Itamaraca) and Olinda (Church and Monastery of Sao Bento & Atelier Vilanova). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Ricardo Brennand Institute, make a trip to Praca do Marco Zero, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue, and pause for some serene contemplation at Capela Dourada.
