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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Centro Historico and Church and Monastery of Sao Bento. Step off the beaten path and head to Praia de Tambaba and Praia de Tamandare. Change things up with these side-trips from Recife: Porto de Galinhas (Cachacaria e Pimentaria Tio Gilson, Scuba & Snorkeling, &more), Se Cathedral (in Olinda) and Conde (Tabatinga Beach & Carapibus Beach). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Madre Deus Church, see the interesting displays at Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand, stroll through Praia de Calhetas, and kick back and relax at Ponta de Pedras Beach.
