The Brazilian Venice: Recife

I get it, there’s not that much information about other places and touristic propaganda is heavy on those two capitals, but let me show you how much of Brazil you are about to miss if you’re only focusing on Rio and Sampa. And don’t get me wrong, you should still visit those two because they are awesome places, but trust me, they are not the only thing Brazil has to offer. Here are three other beautiful places I think are worthy of a chance in your trip planning: The Brazilian Venice: Recife

How to get there:

How to get there: By plane: It has two daily flights from Recife and another two from Natal City. The best part is a really short flight, about 30 minutes! By sea: From October to February you’re able to reach the island by taking an amazing cruise. When to visit: Noronha is a warm and sunny place all year round (average temp. 28°C), although it has two seasons: rainy (April to August – sporadic rain with intense sunshine in between) and dry (September to March).
