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 offseason, 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.
