Olinda and Recife are located on the Atlantic coast of northeast Brazil at the mouth of the Beberibe and Capibaribe Rivers.

Recife is the fifth-largest metropolitan area in Brazil (nearly 4 million inhabitants) and the largest metropolitan area in this part of the country.

Olinda, located next to Recife, is the second-oldest city in Brazil and a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its beautiful colonial buildings and small churches.

The surrounding areas both north and south are filled with some of Brazil’s most popular beaches, as well as good locations for windsports, snorkeling, and diving.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
