Introducing INSIDER INSIGHTS
INSIDER INSIGHTS: Through Local Eyes will be a growing record of interviews with people who are intimately involved with Recife and the region. Our aim is to give you insider perspectives on what makes Recife, Olinda, Porto de Galinhas and the region special. They will give you a good idea what life is like, and how to experience the best of what the area has to offer when you are here.
Recife Guide wants to help the independent travelers discover the authentic Brazil, have real experiences and get off the beaten track, if they wish. We believe most travellers can see through the tired old cliché images used to portray Brazil and are more interested to learn about its history and culture and to experience the fantastic tropical climate and natural environment.
We also believe that the insights of locals will bring the real Brazil to life with vivid descriptions of things to do, places to visit and interesting personalities, all the while providing details of their favorite restaurants and bars, the beaches they love, and the things they like to do most.
The people who agreed to give interviews are Brazilians or foreigners that have lived here long enough to call themselves locals. They include artists, musicians, business people, photographers and people from many other walks of life.
If you visit Recife, you may meet some of them; most are friends or acquaintances of your Recife Guide.
