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.

  • Church beautiful inside and out, which was point of poets, Bohemians, has the King Luiz Gonzaga Museum, pity that the rulers do not have a distinctive look to this location.

  • Nice place, but it's good to be smart with the surroundings (and if you're in the yard to visit to the market is fundamental).

  • A memorial to Luiz Gonzaga (one of the largest Northeastern culture references) as well as Chico Science, one of the founder of the mangue beat, rhythm that stirred the years 90, also home of the Carnival. 1 's House is the Centre of tourist information and support. Later, the restaurant the little hole, well attended especially on weekends. On Tuesdays the black Tuesday, exaltation to the African culture through music, without forgetting to St. Peter's Church, which gives its name to the place.
