Like I mentioned previously here, I was traveling with my family and we spent 10 days in the Brazilian northeast, region of amazing beaches. I didn’t know it was winter there! We were lucky the sun was bright and shining, perfect for touring around. The airplane landed in Maceió’s international airport, in the state Alagoas, where we rented a car and after driving for 2 hours, arrived in Maragogi.
The city is very small, very poor (sorry for my honesty, but that’s what I saw) and rich when it comes to nice people, crystal clear water and good food. One of the things we did – probably the most famous one there – was snorkeling in the natural pools. Basically you pay to get into this waterboat and go into the open sea for a few minutes, until you find this…
The city of Maragogi has a good commerce, this is one of the main activities for the people’s subsistence in general, aside from tourism related activities. The shore is full of good restaurants. One of the typical dishes is tapioca – which I love!
Maragogi is minutes away from state Pernambuco, where we also visited. There is a city named São José da Coroa Grande, which has the same reality of the one in Alagoas. It is hard to decide which place has the best beaches though.
* The post’s purpose, aside from sharing my trip, is to show the readers how big and beautiful this country is. It’s sad to see the clear political disregard in those small cities of such a neglected area like the northeast is. The lack of doctors, resources, studyding (schools included) among other basic things for the local population’s survival didn’t take away the smile from their faces, and that combined with everything I saw made this trip an eternal memory. Thank you family for this early birthday gift!
