Recife, the capital of Pernambuco in northeastern Brazil, is a tropical paradise and a popular destination for holidaymakers. Yet, this is only one of the city’s aspects. Besides the sun, the fun and the lovely beaches, Recife has a rich historical heritage, a brilliant culinary scene, and a large selection of things to do and experience in the arts and crafts sector.
You will land at the Recife/Guararapes–Gilberto Freyre International Airport (REC) to start your local adventure. For your transfer from Recife Airport to downtown, there are three different transport options; taxi, metro or bus. A Recife Airport to Recife taxi is the most convenient option, with zero waiting times and a ride duration of around 20-25 minutes. The metro will get you to the historic centre in 35 minutes, and it is a cost-effective option. Last, buses leaving the airport take 40 minutes more or less to reach Recife Antigo, and they are also a cheap alternative.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Recife at the same price as a regular taxi.
