Once the capital of Dutch Brazil, Recife has a history spanning back to 1537, when it was little more than a handful of fishing houses on the beach.
Relax by the water at Muro Alto Beach and Pontal De Maracaipe. Do some cultural sightseeing at Instituto Ricardo Brennand and Recife Antigo. Take a break from Recife with a short trip to Vila de Porto de Galinhas Beach in Porto de Galinhas, about 1h 20 min away. It doesn't end there: examine the collection at Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Guararapes - Gilberto Freyre International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 84°F, and evening lows to 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
