Situated at the very eastern tip of the Americas, Joao Pessoa is indeed, as its nickname suggests, "the city where the sun rises first." Known for its exceptional integration with nature, the city ranks as the greenest capital in Brazil, with countless parks and even an Atlantic rainforest reserve within its bounds. Founded in 1585, Joao Pessoa is the third-oldest city in Brazil, with an extensive history of Dutch and Portuguese rule. During a Joao Pessoa holiday, you'll get the chance to enjoy the city's long expanses of low-rise beachfront, as well as the tropical vegetation that surrounds it. Use our Brazil driving holiday planning app to plan your trip to Joao Pessoa and other destinations in Brazil.

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.
