Hi everyone I just recently came back from the northeast of brazil and had an amazing time. I really recommend it. I was staying in the Recife area…which is not so good, but as soon as you get out of the city, the surrounding countryside is amazing. Some of the best beaches in the world lie just a half hour away.
I really recommend porto de galinhas which is a beautiful beach port. You can check out some good photos from around there, here http://www.visitrecife.info/?p=92
If anyone else has any questions about this part of brazil let me know!
