Welcome to Aracaju
Though Aracaju's coastline attracts Brazilians for weekend getaways, the city isn't much of a draw for international tourists. Still, if you're looking for a relaxing beach vacation in a city environment, it's worth considering. You'll find a few points of interest in the historic center, including the picturesque main square with its towering cathedral. But most of the historic center is a utilitarian business district. The beaches are the real attraction in Aracaju. In the city there are several miles of lovely coastline, and, especially in the off-season, you won't find it as hectic as other large cities. Along the beach you'll find a growing number of restaurants and hotels popping up to meet tourism demands.
