  • We haven't climbed the Hill walk because I was with my elderly mother and the Sun was very hot. We can take a taxi from shopping Tacaruna and who took us upstairs. Pay 20 reais. You can do the tour without Guide. There's a guy that makes the role of guide and receive the value that tourists want to pay. But he just tells the story of the Cathedral Church, the origin of Olinda is a little of the history of Recife. But it was very worthwhile. I loved his explanation. It's worth it. Not to mention the view that show!!!!!!!!!! Don't forget to visit the historic centre's beautiful tem.uma tapioca delicious, giftware and souvenirs shops.

  • The fame of Olinda speaks for itself. Is a place full of history, of Enchantment. It's rustic, cozy and so bold this place. Each building visited me cause dazzle ... turn the corner and run into a pad of Carnival out of season makes me go back to being a kid. The streets of Olinda routine get me ... make me forget about work and personal problems. It is a city that imposes itself as well as the nature: bigger than us. Sometimes it's bigger than the world. The spirituality of Church and candomblé, the thunderous sound of the maracatu. Everything in olinda is haze and fantasy.

  • This region is very charming, for being an ancient city has a lot to get to know each other. Are many churches and a more beautiful than the other. The giant puppets has fewer characters than the old Reef, but it's interesting to know. Upstairs has a spectacular view of the city, you can take lots of cool photos. The bad part is the intense heat to go up and down the hills ... the guides (which are many) are pretty insistent.. We were afraid of being robbed, people getting asking for things all the time, and even the children of garbage collection requested money for coffee, which made the tour a little tense. But worth knowing!

Where to stay in Olinda

In keeping with the city's quaint heritage and architecture, most of the accommodations in Olinda are small, family-run inns or private rentals. This generally keeps prices low, with plenty of budget options available, although during carnival time expect to pay triple the usual rate on almost any inn or hotel in town. The old-town neighborhood of Carmo, with its proximity to many of the best attractions in Olinda, offers by far the highest concentration of places to stay and allows you to immerse yourself in the charming surroundings. Look along the city's northern coast to find several good beachside hotels where you can relax and find easy access to the water.
