Visit a paradise of clear waters and white sand
The seaside resort of Porto de Galinhas (1 hour away from Recife) is composed by many beautiful beaches: Muro Alto, Cupe, Maracaípe and Pontal de Maracaípe. The village of Porto de Galinhas is right in the middle of these truly paradises and will be our base for this Tour.
As soon as we arrive in the village, we'll go to a very nice restaurant by the beach, where we will be able to rent a locker, use the bathroom and have a delicious meal later. Before, we'll go for a buggy ride to know all the beaches that makes this seaside resort one of the most visited in Brazil.
After the buggy ride and lunch there are a few options: you can just stay by the beach in front of the restaurant, go for a jangada ride (typical local sail boat), visit the village's shops or even go scuba diving.
And do you know what "Porto de Galinhas" mean? No? I'll tell you when we meet.
NOTE: This Tour is much better during week days, because on weekends Porto de Galinhas sometimes is too crowded.
From Recife, we'll take the highway and drive 50km to the south, until we reach the Porto de Galinhas village (municipality of Ipojuca/PE). Then we will go to one of the restaurants by the beach (we have a few good options, which I will help you choose according to your gastronomic and budget preferences). After setting our meeting point (the restaurant), we will take a buggy to a 2-hour tour the other beaches of Porto de Galinhas (Muro Alto, Cupe, Maracaípe and Pontal de Maracaípe). There will be good opportunities for photography, sea bath and even kayaking or standup paddling (both optional - not included on the price).
We shall be back at the restaurant around noon for lunch.
After lunch, there will be a few optional activities you may choose to do: Scuba diving, a Jangada Ride to the natural pools, go shopping at the village or just stay by the beach relaxing.

Sergio did a second tour for my group. Although the weather did not cooperate, we still had a great time on Porto Galinhas. He was very attentive to the changing weather and adapted the schedule to take advantage of the time when it was not raining. Great tour!
