  • I am Sport supporter, but I recognize that the island has a lot to improve, because much of the cement bleachers, no chairs to sit, the bathrooms are rotten, the field still has chain link fence with barbed wire and gates so fans don't invade, portraying well the reality of our society is violent and rude throughout Brazil, now the social side, chairs and cabins is another level, you feel much safer and can go to the stadium with your quiet family. And when the Red-Black Nation begins to sing it is impossible not to be moved by the strength of this crowd that no doubt is the largest in the Northeast.

  • Seat of the Sport Club do Recife, traditional football club, but with tradition also in other sports like rowing, basketball and swimming. Island retreat as it is known, is home to local, regional and national ties. Located in the central area of the city, with easy access.

Where to stay in Recife

It's no surprise that the vast majority of accommodations in Recife crowd around the city's long expanses of shorefront. Consider the southern coastal neighborhood of Boa Viagem for instant access to miles of vibrant beachfront, the prime location for locals and tourists alike to make the most of the sunshine. As well as high-end hotels and beach resorts, you can opt to stay in a range of fun, budget hostels, thanks to Recife's ever-growing popularity among backpackers. If you want something a bit quieter, look to the nearby historical town of Olinda, just 6 km (3.7) north of the city center. From there, you can easily make day--or night--trips to Recife proper.
