Museu da Gente Sergipana

Reviewed By Florian S - London, United Kingdom

We went on a rainy day, and sadly there's not much to do in Aracaju.
Though museums are not really my thing , it is nicely done with lots of details and interactive guidance and very nice staff
From atalaia beach you can take a bus, taxi is 35 reais

2. Parque dos Falcoes

Parque dos Falcoes

Reviewed By Milena S - St. Gallen, Switzerland

Here you can see birds of prey and take pictures, but, mist interesting of all, is to learn about them from the trainers: their capabilities, their history and every bird has a specific personality. Fantastic! A must go!!
By the end you can take pictures with some trained ones.

Xingo Canyons

Reviewed By Paul L - Reading, United Kingdom

It’s very impressive/beautiful but nearly 4hrs to get there from Aracaju and 4hrs back makes it a very long day. I would suggest making it a two day trip and staying somewhere near Xingo as apparently there is a lot more to it that the hour long boat trip, hour swimming and hour back that you get – I spotted a lovely buteco on the riverside which I would have loved to have gone to but boat doesn’t stop.
I was looking forward most of all to jumping off the boat into the canyon river which the promo video implies is what goes on so was rather disappointed to find out that you have to get off the boat and are shepherded into a separate crowded enclosure for swimming. I understand the safety reasons for this but really they are selling an untruth!
If you really want to see Xingo do a two day trip but if all you want is a picturesque boat trip there are ones that go from much closer to Aracaju which tick that particular box!

Orla de Atalaia

Reviewed By ajaceman - Vancouver

The Orla appears to be a victim of speculation that has kind of sputtered in recent times. The kids park is rusty around the edges and the bumper cars parked. The TAMAR sea life park could be more exciting and inspiring. Some fairly large restaurants seem to do ok serving average food. Traffic races by at breakneck speed. There are a few abandoned buildings hoarded up like rotten teeth. But the sidewalks are beautifully picked out in black and white stone and there's a great cycling path. At night there are artisanato stands and you can get a coconut for a couple of reals.

Xingo Archeology Museum

Reviewed By Leonardo C

O Museu, administrado pela Universidade Federal de Sergipe, conta com uma boa estrutura, salas bem iluminadas e ambientação muito boa, feita com o auxílio de painéis e simulações de terrenos, onde ficam estátuas que representam os habitantes dos tempos pré-históricos.
Há ossadas e demonstrações de como eram os sepultamentos, há utensílios de pedra e argila originais, de milhares de anos passados.
Conta com guias que são alunos da Universidade, os que nós encontramos são aptos a prestar os esclarecimentos e informações, tiram dúvidas e estão abertos a conversa sobre os temas referentes à arqueologia.
Há uma taxa que deve ser paga numa sala em frente ao museu, quem quiser, pode compra camisetas e demais souvenires.
Ótimo pra quem gosta de história e se interessa por cultura.

Reviewed By Tamboril - Brasilia, DF

If you are a brazilian tourist in Aracaju, you mustn't lose the chance to know a little bit more about your people. If you are a foreigner you must go there too, but don´t forget to ask for help.
The guiders are great and perfectly able to help you.

Xingo Dam

Reviewed By Wilhelm S - Recife, PE

This trip starts at the Xingó Info Center and takes you to and inside the hydroelectric powerplant. You need a car and pay a single (cheap) fare per car to enter the complex. A guide shows you the damm area with some nice views on Xingó Reservoir and the overflow area. After you enter inside the power generation area with some more explanations. It's a good way to know more about the actual water/energy problems of Brazil's Northeast and don't forget to ask about Delmiro Gouveia. That's a hell of a story.
A visita começa pelo Info Center e leva pra dentro do hidroelétrica. Precisa de um carro, para entrar. A entrada se pago por carro. O guia mostra a represa com vistas bonitas do lago e da área de transbordar. Depois segue para dentro da usina. Aí tem explicações sobre os problemas atuais de falta de água e energia do Nordeste brasileiro. Não deixe de perguntar sobre Delmiro Gouveia, um gênio brasileiro esquecido.

Reviewed By Margarida W - Lisbon, Portugal

There are some guided visits to the palace but the guides dont have too much information and give some very wrong information. You should try to see it by your own and read some information to confirm what the guide is saying.

Ilha dos Namorados

Reviewed By JulioSete - Candeias, MG

Curiosamente, para se avistar o crustáceo típico goré, deve se ir a ilha dos namorados, não à vizinha Crôa do Goré. É muito legal ver os bichinhos, inofensivos, presentes aos milhares. Recomendo o passeio via catamarã, já que a estrutura montada na ilha é deles. Inclui brinquedos infáveis para crianças, redes na água, mesas e cadeiras na sombra para quem chega pelo catamarã e a mesma estrutura de bar disponível a bordo.

Croa do Gore

Reviewed By Beatriz O - Sao Paulo, SP

We arrived very early, before the restaurant boat and it was amazing... little by little the tide went down and the "island" became larger and larger and really beautiful. Avoid weekends. It is too crowded and loses its beauty! Also, go early in the morning, so u can stay until 2pm when the tide is high again. The snacks were ordered were OK. I bought some cookies from a boy whose mother makes them that were AMAZING! The cheese crackers were great! We didn't take the big boat. We decided to take the small taxi boat, so we could stay there as long as we wanted.
