Brazil - Pernambuco, Paraiba & Rio Grande do Norte (PDF Chapter)
This is the Pernambuco, Paraíba & Rio Grande do Norte chapter from Lonely Planet’s Brazil guidebook.
The nearly 1000km-long coastline edging these three states consists of one sandy, sunburnt beach after another, backed by dunes, palms or cliffs. The coast is home to four very different cities: historic Recife, artsy Olinda, appealingly revived João Pessoa, and the holiday playground of Natal.
