Where to stay in Porto de Galinhas

You can't walk more than a few steps along Porto de Galinhas' coastline without bumping into yet another hotel or bed and breakfast. As befits the best beach in Brazil, five-star hotels and beach resorts abound, offering all the luxuries you'd expect. It's not all glitz and glamor, though; you can find plenty of budget options in the form of small inns and guesthouses, which come in varying degrees of quality and cleanliness. If the town's touristy center seems a bit much, look to the northern and southern edges of town, where you can find beachside accommodations in a quieter setting.
