Pictures of Recife

Beachfront Recife Recife, like the islands in the Caribbean, has crystal clear water. You can see the hundreds of people crowding the beach. With a tropical climate year-round, turists and natives alike can take advantage of the amazing natural surroundings at their liesure.






A Fisherman's Boat This type of boat commonly used by fisherman in Recife is called a jangada. Constructed of only a log or two, and utilizing brightly colored sails for power (usually made by the fisherman himself), the fishermen take these tiny vessels into the deep sea waters to catch their fish. This requires great skill due to the bare necessities used in construction (Leiter).
