“Aqui é Julia, cunhada do Fernando. Gostaria de agradecer todo carinho e cuidado que vocês tiveram conosco. Fomos muito bem recebidos pelo sr. Almir e todos do condomínio Ancorar. Local muito lindo, onde ficamos incrivelmente bem acomodados. Fomos até a barraca do Maurício e com certeza meu namorado Rafael fez bons amigos por lá. Adoramos Porto de Galinhas e todas atrações que tem por volta, sentimos pelo pouco tempo que ficamos pois com certeza é um lugar que merece mais tempo, mas igual aproveitamos muito e saímos muito felizes! Esperamos vocês na Praia do Rosa para poder recebê-los da mesma forma. Muito obrigado por tudo e até breve. Abraços!”

“We were delighted to spend a relaxing week at Joaquim and his family, beautiful sea front apartment just outside Porto de Galihas in July 2013, prior to our tour of other South American countries. There were amazing sea views as well as a wonderful picture window from the master bedroom from which we could see the swimming pool and the ocean. Joaquim and his wife Luz Maria met us when we arrived and we spent a very useful and enjoyable few hours with them. The information they gave us about the area and places to eat proved invaluable. The area was quite peaceful when we were there, and this is what we wanted. We borrowed their bikes and watched birds as well as taking very inexpensive taxis into Porto. This is a real family resort and it was a pleasure to witness the extended families enjoying their holiday. The reef and fish feeding as well as the quaint boats are a sight to behold. Their apartment was cosy and comfortable. As a couple we had a wonderful time and a family would probably enjoy it even more as there are many children's facilities which we did not need to use. We are more than happy to recommend their apartment and also to recommend them as guests. We would never have known that 6 people had been in our home for a month and it was a pleasure to know that they too were happy with our exchange. This was our first exchange and we know it will not be our last!”
“In Dec 2010 we exchanged homes with Andre, Johanna and their children who came to stay in our condo in Florida. It was great to talk to Andre prior and after the exchange. I truly enjoy our conversations and I am sorry I have not met him in person yet. As guests, they were very caring and polite. Joaquim and Luz Maria (Andre's parents) were in Porto de Galinhas, Brazil, waiting for us when we travelled there in March 2011. We truly enjoy meeting them and spending time with both of them. They took time to explain to us all about the place and the people there. By the time they said good bye, few hours after we arrived in their condo, we had a feeling that it would have been better if we had spent more time together. We hope to see all of them again, sometime soon!”
“We loved our stay at Joaquim and Luz Maria's modern new apartment especially the terrace overlooking the sea. Walking along the beautiful beaches was very pleasant. Luz Maria was here to welcome us and show us around which we liked a lot. Very recommendable. Helene”
Where is it?
Porto de Galinhas means Port of Chickens; during the 18th century, when the traffic of slaves was forbidden, "chicken" was the code used to refer to the slaves. "There are new chickens in town" was the way to say that a ship loaded with slaves had arrived. Until a few years ago, Porto de Galinhas was an anonymous small village of fishermen; today, it's a famous small village of fishermen. Many of the locals still make a living out of the catches they get from the sea, the coconuts which abound in the palm tree plantations, the small commerce businesses. Porto de Galinhas is about 60 km south of Recife. Many tourists and residents of Recife are attracted by the night life of Porto. Our duplex apartment, however, is about 2 km away from downtown Porto de Galinhas. It is therefore very quiet, even in the high season. We also own two bikes, with which you can go downtown within 15 min. The beach line is 18 km long, all with white, fine grained, clean sand. There is a chain of reefs lining all along the coast. During the lower tide, the water trapped by the reefs forms several natural pools. There is also the possibility of renting horses to ride in the beach.
