Large city in the northeast of Brazil. Tropical climate with 2 seasons - wet & dry. We enjoyed just walking around and seeing the locals on a Saturday - market day. The cruise terminal is not actually too far from the main action but the neighborhood next to the port is kind of gritty.
Hot weather all year long. Famous destination in Brazil this city gets totally packed around january, february and march specially because of the carnival.
Recife is a great place to live. Weather and temperature are stable all year around. Locals are very kind and very nice hosts. I lived there for four years. Wouldn´t doubt to go back there, anytime..
