Cruising to Recife, Brazil

As the capital of the state of Pernambuco, which can be found in the north-east of Brazil, Recife is the type of place you ought to consider visiting if you're seeking to combine stunning beaches and fantastic weather with some fascinating historical and cultural attractions.

Indeed, this part of the Brazilian coastline is famous for its breathtaking scenery, with white sand, turquoise water and swaying palms being a common sight. The main beach in Recife, Boa Viagem, offers all of this, yet is unique in that it is right on the doorstep of the city itself, meaning it's backed by a huge array of amenities such as restaurants, shops, hotels and much more. Yet don't think that this detracts anything from its staggering natural beauty - it just means that visitors will have the best of both worlds.

Recife also has a long and prestigious history, having been a major trading post during the Dutch colonial days. As a result, it has lots of cultural attractions for tourists to explore, with museums like the Museu de Arte Popular and the Recife City Museum being just two of the many excellent exhibition centres to be found here.
