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. Nowadays, the buzzing coastal city hums with energy day and night, as locals and visitors enjoy the sun, sand, and clear waters, then gear up to party the evening away. This festive atmosphere reaches fever pitch every February, when the city's renowned Carnaval rolls in. With a well-preserved colonial old town in the midst of towering skyscrapers and crowded streets, there's something for everyone to enjoy on a Recife holiday. Plan a trip to Brazil easily and quickly by telling Klarna Trips to suggest an itinerary.

Where to stay in Recife

It's no surprise that the vast majority of accommodations in Recife crowd around the city's long expanses of shorefront. Consider the southern coastal neighborhood of Boa Viagem for instant access to miles of vibrant beachfront, the prime location for locals and tourists alike to make the most of the sunshine. As well as high-end hotels and beach resorts, you can opt to stay in a range of fun, budget hostels, thanks to Recife's ever-growing popularity among backpackers. If you want something a bit quieter, look to the nearby historical town of Olinda, just 6 km (3.7) north of the city center. From there, you can easily make day--or night--trips to Recife proper.
