Joao Pessoa — 15 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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Joao Pessoa: Barra de Cunhau (in Canguaretama), Conde (Tabatinga Beach, Coqueirinho Beach, &more) and Baia dos Golfinhos (in Praia da Pipa). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Tambau Beach, admire the masterpieces at Estacao Cabo Branco, tour the pleasant surroundings at Piscinas Naturais do Seixas, and make a trip to Centro Historico de Joao Pessoa.
