The city gets its name from the reef that protects it. The city is built around many canals, inlets, and bridges. There are plenty of things to do out here. If you want to make the most of your visit, here are a few things that you need to check out.

Attend a Carnival

If you are in this city, missing out on the great carnival would have been a great mistake. Drop in on a Saturday to catch a glimpse of Galo da Madrugada.  This was something I had never witnessed before. It takes the goes through the bridge and is considered to be one of the largest party that takes place on the streets.

Relax at the Beach

Ask anyone who has visited Brazil as to what is the quintessential thing that they did and they would tell you, relaxing and sunbathing on the beach. Boa Viagem is one of the best beaches that I came across and many people will agree to this. The beach is surrounded by shops, restaurants, and shops. It served to be a great place to unwind.

Go Shopping

The affluent city has several shopping centers where you can shop to your hearts’ content. There are local stores and some designer stores. You get all kinds to stuff. One of the best shopping centers in the country is RioMar Recife.

Marvel at the Majestic Castle

Instituto Ricardo Brennand is worth checking out. Even though it is not medieval, it is spectacular. A stroll around the castle told me that is filled with armor suits, swords, and other knightly items. There are also some historical artifacts and artwork that are on display in here. It helped me learn about the history associated with the castle.
