Overshadowed by big Bahia to the south, the tiny state of Alagoas has long been overlooked by travelers. But it's a tendency that's changing – in the past few years, the thoroughly likeable coastal city of Maceió has emerged as a buzzing vacation destination for Brazilian tourists. There are towering modern hotels on its waterfront and a small, but eclectic, restaurant scene that combines world cuisine with Brazilian flavors.
