Plan a stop at Igreja Matriz do Santíssimo Sacramento de Santo Antonio. It's one attraction you'll find on many visitors' to-do lists.

If you're after day-trip inspiration, we know just the place. Located 22 miles away, Ilha de Itamaraca is worth getting in the car for. Pontal do Jaguaribe Beach ought to be at the top of your to-do list here. Fort Orange and Forno da Cal Beach are interesting attractions too. Gravata is another wonderful option. It's 47 miles away and boasts a variety of fun things to do. Three Kings Monument, Rodolfo de Moraes Park and Alto do Cruzeiro are just the start.
Recife is home to some beautiful coastal areas, and what better way to experience them than from behind the wheel of your own rental car. See what delightful treasures you can find scattered along the shoreline of one of these top beaches:

Here are some of our top tips if you want to bag the best price on a car rental:
Recife has so much to offer. You could spend a week or more here and not run out of things to do. If you want to soak up as much as you can in this energetic metropolis, you'll need a rental car. Keep in mind that driving around big cities usually goes hand in hand with tight streets and limited parking spaces. But don't worry — a small, economical car can make this less daunting. If you're eager to get out of the city and check out the mountains that Recife is famous for, you'll probably prefer a vehicle with a little more power. A mid-size or full-size SUV will make those road trips a dream.
First of all, there's a broad range of both economy and luxury rentals in Recife. What you go with is largely dependent on how much you want to spend and what you plan to do. Prestige vehicles are hard to beat if you're all about mod cons and comfort. If you're splashing out, why not go for an elite SUV, or perhaps an upmarket mid-sized sedan? Alternatively, if you just need a car to get from A to B at the cheapest price possible, go for a budget compact vehicle (or something else that won't blow your budget).
