Joao Pessoa

— 10 nights

City Where the Sun Rises First

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Joao Pessoa side-trips: Olinda (Centro Historico de Olinda & Shopping Patteo Olinda), Praia da Pipa (Santuario Ecologico de Pipa & Baia dos Golfinhos) and Conde (Coqueirinho Beach & Praia de Tambaba). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Tambau Beach, admire the masterpieces at Estacao Cabo Branco, tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia da Ponta do Seixas, and pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja Sao Francisco.

For photos, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Joao Pessoa trip planning site.
