I have been to Recife on several short business trips, but with still enough time to go to the beach and check out Olinda, Recifes main attraction with beautiful colorful colonial buildings.

Recife, the capital of Pernambucano, is in the Northeast of Brazil and like other Brazilian cities, it is a mix of modern high-rise buildings with old baroque churches.


Olinda is probably the highlight of a visit to Recife. Both Recife and Olinda have some of the best carnaval in Brazil.
