The name Porto de Galinhas means, Chicken´s Port and it has an interesting history behind it. The original name was Porto Rico, but after the slave market was prohibited, slaves had to be brought secretly to Brazil, in this port the buyers and sellers started a code, when there were ships with slaves in the docks they would say "There´s new chicken in the port", and that´s how the city of Porto Rico, became Porto de Galinhas.
This is a wonderful region, with clear waters, natural pools, corals and reefs, also has a great infrastructure for the tourists, with restaurants from the whole world, nice hotels and a lot of entertainment.
During the day you can visit the famous beach of Porto de Galinhas, and also the nearby beaches of Muro Alto and Macaraípe(the place to be if you want to surf). If you don´t want to be swimming and sunbathing the whole day, you can always go to a ship or Buggy trip, this way you´ll be able to see the best spots of the region.
During the night you can go to "Villa de Todos os Santos" it´s a street in front of the Macaraípe Beach, full of restaurants and bars, great to meet someone while enjoying live music. And in Porto de Galinhas you´ll find also nice restaurants, plus a wide selection of handcraft stores.
