I have traveled to Recife, Olinda, and Porto de Galinhas before and enjoyed the trip. I will meet a friend next month in Recife or Salvador (Stella Maris). I prefer to meet in Recife, and then go to the nearest beach like Porto de Galinhas to swim and ride the waves. Anybody familiar with these two areas, and views on the better place for a 5 day visit. It will be a vacation for relaxing, and would prefer relaxing situations on the coast.
