  • The Globe Hotel is in Largo da Igreja de São Frei Pedro Gonçalves and was a very famous back then. Today you can get in and the garden where there is a view of the woods of the island from the axis and the Paraíba River. In addition, the location is in the historic centre of João Pessoa, where there are many churches and old mansions.

  • Because it is a historical place, a populated area from the 16 century, I expect more of this area known as lower town. No more cleaning the streets and, above all, tourism signage for example, orienting for a walk. Preferably signs written in Portuguese and English.

Where to stay in Joao Pessoa

As you'd expect, most of the accommodations in Joao Pessoa crowd around the eastern coastline, jostling for the best position to catch a glimpse of the morning sun. Of these areas, the beach neighborhoods of Cabo Branco Tambaú and Manaíra offer by far the best range of places to stay. In pleasant contrast to many of Brazil's other coastal cities, a restriction on high-rise buildings along the shorefront has helped the city retain its laid-back, natural feel. Consequently, most hotels are housed in smaller, unobtrusive buildings. You won't find a huge range of budget accommodations in the city, but if visiting in low season (March to November), you can bargain for as much as 40 percent off the regular price.
