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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Recife: Porto de Galinhas (Pontal de Maracaipe, Scuba & Snorkeling, &more) and Praia dos Carneiros (in Tamandare). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Ricardo Brennand Institute, explore the galleries of Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand, stroll through Boa Viagem Beach, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue.
