Aracaju can be found in the northeast of Brazil, and is the capital of Sergipe. The city is on the coast and is well known for its beautiful beaches and seafront. It is one of the safest cities in the northeast region, and as such is often said to have the best quality of life in the area. Aracaju is also the smallest Brazilian state, but despite this it has much to offer a traveller on the lookout for something special.

Although small, the city brings to life the excitement and typical culture of Brazil. It has excellent transport links, both by bus and taxi, but also via cycle routes. However the water is the best way to explore Aracaju, as it is a popular destination for visitors who like to sail, and has many accessible rivers as well as a gorgeous shoreline. There is also a sea turtle protection base, a project that is a must see for anyone interested in conservation.

Hostels in this city are simple, in good locations that provide access to everything you could want in the city. Most of the hostels available offer hotel style bonuses, such as swimming pools and great views, at the cost of a normal hostel. As a colonial destination, Aracaju is often filled with visitors and tourists, meaning that most hostels in this area are well equipped to accommodate visitors.

Across Aracaju you will find fantastic architecture, many interesting museums, and attractions such as the Emperor's Bridge, which is used as a viewpoint to admire the scenery. However, the Brazilian city is much more of a place to enjoy the sun, the food and the nightlife - a common dish of the region is salted meat. If you are to find a hostel in this buzzing city, then make sure you visit between September and February, when it is hottest, or for its famous festival, where thousands of people visit to celebrate together.
