Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: Go to Marco Zero in the early evening particularly on a Sunday where the Market and rehearsals for carnival make a great night.

Liked: We went to a wonderful market on Sunday near the Marco Zero which last all day. Go at night when they light the lamps above each stall - very pretty. The bus system was good and we had a great day trip to Olimda which is a must see. Definitely stay in Recife and make a day trip across, the area where we stayed - Pina - was not great with a lack of things to do or places to eat but the people watching was great despite not being able to go in the sea because of sharks!

Disliked: The area we stayed - Pina - was not as vibrant as we had hoped.

Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing Partying / nightlife Romantic getaway Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Não deixem de ir aos museus e espaços culturais. O centro da cidade pode ser percorrível a pé em um dia grande e este passeio é bem legal: recife antigo - Santo Antônio.

Liked: principalmente as praias e as atividadesa culturais. a cidade é limpa e organizada. tem um povo hospitaleiro e é muito rica em cultura.

Disliked: o sistema de transporte público precisa melhorar. Os mapas da cidade também são incompetos e não tem o nome de todas as ruas. A cidade fecha cedo. é uma cidade mais diurna que noturna.
