The capital of the state is Recife, a cosmopolitan city which has some of the most beautiful urban areas in Brazil.

Things to Do in Pernambuco, Brazil

Most visitors to Pernambuco holiday rentals spend the day on one of the beautiful sandy beaches which this region is known for. Stroll along the promenade at Boa Viagem Beach, sunbathe, swim or just people-watch in this fascinating country. Shopping at the malls or searching for handcrafted souvenirs in the handicraft shops is a pleasant pastime. The area prides itself on its local artists and the galleries have plenty of artworks for browsing. After dark, the entertainment and nightlife become apparent with many spectacular shows and bars. The best time to visit for entertainment is at Carnival, just before Lent when Pernambuco has a huge and colourful week-long festival. Pernambuco is known as a region of dancing and many flamboyant performances can be enjoyed such as the embolada, maracatu, caranguejo, mangaba and the mangue-beat. Join in or watch this cultural ritual. After dark, enjoy dining out on local seafood and regional cuisine at the excellent local restaurants.

Places to Visit in Pernambuco, Brazil

Recife is one of the most important port cities along this coast and prospered historically from its exports of sugar, cotton and coffee. The coastal waters are still the source of income for local fishermen and watching them navigate their traditional log rafts, called jangadas, is a unique sight. The architecture including the Sao Pedro dos Clerigos Cathedral makes it a wonderful city to explore. The beach of Porto de Galinhas is not to be missed with its clear salt-water pools scattered around the coral reefs. Just offshore is a group of islands called Fernando de Noronho where visitors can enjoy the unspoilt marine life and ecological sites including the Praia Sancho, a reserve for a group of 600 spinner dolphins. To experience the mountains further inland, visit the city of Triunfo from your Perambuco holiday rental.
