Porto Velho: What to do and Where to Go?

Do you love listening to samba? Then you need to visit Porto Velho. This is a small but lively city. It is not much popular among the tourists. However, a visit to the city made me realize that it has more to offer than meets the eye. If you want to visit Porto Velho and derive the maximum fun then you need to check out the list given below.

Check Out Mercado Cultural

In order to have some fun, I visited Mercado Cultural. Music is played by some talented professionals and you can grab some delicious food here. Apart from this, marvel at the architecture of the building. It is simply great. It can be said that it is an exhibition of the city’s history. I had some good time here.

Visit Palacio Getulio Vargas

Visiting this place might be difficult but it is not impossible. This is because it is the most crowded. It has now been turned into a museum. I came to learn about the history of the city here. Also, the building has incredible architecture.

Spend Some Time at Cais Do Porto Velho

Do you want to get away from the bustling life of the city and spend some quiet time? Cais do is the place to be. The expanse of the river-front park offers a stunning. If you want, you can take a walk around the park. Click some photos to take some memory back home. I also availed the boating facility that is available here.

Explore the Beach of Porto Velho

Do not miss out on the miss. This is a great place for tourists. The bright sunlight is just perfect for sunbathing. Stroll around the beach or take a dip in the water. Stay back till sunset as the view during this time is just ethereal.

Porto De Galinhas: Explore the Beach Town

Being a beach lover, I have a strong affinity for the different beach towns of Brazil. Porto de Galinhas is one such town. It is a popular town of Pernambuco. The wild nature and the warm captured my heart, the moment I set foot in the city. There are many places to check out during your visit. Let’s take a look at some of these.

Praia De Muro Alto

This is one of the best beaches in this town. The blue water against the green background offers an excellent view. There are natural pools and reefs. It is nothing less than a paradise. I took a dip in the water as it is calm. You can stay close to the beach as there are many resorts and hotels available here.

Praia Da Vila

This is another beach that will blow your mind. My friend John who works near the Jefferson Memorial back in Washington DC had told me about it and recommended I visit when I got here.  I was not disappointed!  It is located at the heart of the town and has natural pools for swimming. There are some lined up restaurants on the beach where you will be able to grab delicious seafood. Spend the day on the beach soaking in the sun. I had a great time relaxing on the beach.

Engenho Massangana

This is actually a complex of buildings including a chapel that had been constructed in the 19th century. During that time, it used to the base of the economy of the town. Joaquim Nabuco used to live here when he was a child. It gets its name from the nearby river.


To visit this beach, I left early in the morning. You have to take a catamaran to arrive on the golden coast of Alagoas. It is important to visit when there is low tide. So every early morning it can be considered to be the best time. The turquoise blue water was a treat to the eyes.
