Olinda, Brazil - Colorful Town, Perfet for a Day Trip!

Brazil, Olinda Guide (B): Olinda, Brazil - Colorful Town, Perfet for a Day Trip!

Olinda is an amazingly beautiful and brightly colorful town located north from the Recife metropolitan area in Brazil. The region is famous for its paradise beaches with coral reef pools (see my post here). But apart from the natural wonders, you can also find such architectural gems as the little town of Olinda here. Although Olinda receives many tourists, hardly ever any of them is from abroad. People know only about Rio when asked about Brazil. And there's so much to discover! Take a look at the beautiful photos from Olinda and don't miss it during your trip in the north of Brazil.

As it is a popular destination, it's not difficult to get there. Olinda is situated only around 10 km (6 miles) from Recife - the capital city of Pernambuco state. There are numerous buses that you can take from central Recife and the journey will not take more than 30 minutes. If you're a foreigner, a great option is Uber - it's handy, fast and very reliable in Brazil. It's also way cheaper than taxis. The 20 minute ride will cost you around 5 USD. ......
