Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Pernambuco, Brazil your home away from home

The state of Pernambuco is in northeast Brazil, just south of the neighbouring states of Paraiba and Ceara. Pernambuco borders the Atlantic coast and has some of the most beautiful beaches in the country along its 187km coastline. The capital of the state is Recife, a cosmopolitan city which has some of the most beautiful urban areas in Brazil. The region dates back to before 1515 and is proud of its regional culture, music and art heritage. Portuguese is the national language but English and Spanish are taught in the local schools.

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.

Weather in Pernambuco, Brazil

Lying along the Equator, holiday rentals in Pernambuco enjoy year-round sunshine and warm temperatures which average 29°C (84°F). Inland, temperatures are much cooler in the higher mountains. The area has a rainy season which runs from April to August but generally the climate is ideal for a pleasant holiday.

Travel to Pernambuco, Brazil

Most visitors to Pernambuco holiday rentals fly into the main international airport at Rio de Janeiro (GIG). Connecting flights can then be taken to Recife (REC) International Airport in the heart of Pernambuco, which also receives some direct international flights from outside Brazil.

Great location, beautiful apt, safe and friendly

5 of 5
This apartment been on it"s first time rental, there was few missing in the kitchen to accommodate the amount of peoples; the owner adjust quickly to our comments and our stay was just perfect, the appliances are of very good quality. Close to the beach but far enough not to have Boa Viagem ave trafic noise, the location is perfect with a direct view from all 3 bedrooms and the living-room. The washing machine and the drying supports are a plus, not to have to carry large amount of clothing. The constant breeze keep the apartment cool in hot days and dry the clothing quickly. the kitchen, leaving room and main bedroom are huge. We never know in advance what we rent, but this one was a winning one. I will rent this apartment every time in the future when going to Recife.
