Joao Pessoa — 5 nights

City Where the Sun Rises First

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Conde (Praia de Tambaba & Coqueirinho Beach). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Estacao Cabo Branco, tour the pleasant surroundings at Bessa Beach, head off the coast to Picaozinho, and enjoy the sand and surf at Cabo Branco Beach.

For more things to do, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Joao Pessoa travel website.

State of Paraiba travel guide

4.1
Beaches · Art Museums · Churches
Mostly agricultural, State of Paraiba remains largely undiscovered by foreign visitors despite its short but well-developed coastline and intriguing interior of cattle ranches and archaeological sites. Most State of Paraiba itineraries include a visit to Ponta do Seixas, the easternmost point of the continent that's geographically closer to Africa than south Brazil. In addition to lazing away on one of many sun-kissed beaches, a State of Paraiba vacation usually involves sightseeing in state capital Joao Pessoa, one of the oldest cities in Brazil known for its modern skyline and several clusters of restored colonial architecture.
