The charms of the Bahian capital are recognized all over the world. The natural beauties of the first national capital, as well as the high-spirits of its inhabitants, are attractive for tourists from all regions of Brazil and from different countries. The beaches of Porto and Farol da Barra are the most sought after in the urban area. And those of Stella Maris, Itapuã and Flamengo, although away from the center, usually make success on the weekends.
If the focus is not just the sea, visit Modelo Market in the Lower City and then climb up the Lacerda Elevator to get to Pelourinho – a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985. Walking through the historical center of Salvador is a guarantee of a cultural tour full houses, museums, ateliers and cultural spaces. In summer, the Olodum band rehearses in Largo do Pelourinho twice a week and is another must-see. And do not forget to enjoy the best of the famous Bahian cuisine, with delicacies like acarajé, moqueca, stew and bobo.
The capital of Ceará certainly has one of the most beautiful coastlines in Brazil. With impeccable infrastructure to cater for tourists, Praia do Futuro is the best place in town, with super equipped tents, internet, massage, water park and the beautiful sea that only the Northeast has. But those who have a little time can also spend the day in other beaches in Ceara, very close to the capital, such as Canoa Quebrada and Cumbuco.
The nightlife in Fortaleza is also very interesting and lively. At Rua Dragão do Mar, for example, the bars set up in old colored houses are a charm apart. The gastronomy is not far behind: the pargo roasted in salt coarse is one of the most requested dishes in the tents located on the edge of Praia do Futuro.
Thanks to its landscape, cut by rivers, the city is known as the Brazilian Venice. The catamaran ride, downtown, for example, provides a unique experience for tourists, who can admire the historic buildings of the colonial period and explore the geography of the Capibaribe River. Walking through the Old Recife, you can visit Marco Zero, the Craft Market, Bom Jesus Street with its colorful buildings, the Giant Dolls Embassy, the Malakoff Tower, among other points. Nearby, there is still the beautiful Golden Chapel, with its interior all covered with gold.
Leaving the old part of the city, do not miss the famous Boa Viagem Beach, with its warm, green waters. And try some typical Pernambuco dishes, such as the delicious roll cake, made with thin layers of cake, rolled with guava. View more Recife hotel deals and discount room rates.
