Last August 2d, the Secretary of Tourism, Sports and Leisure of Recife City Council, Mrs. Ana Paula Vilaça, announced officially the recognition of Recife as a CreativeFriendlyDestination, an international label granted by the CreativeTourismNetwork® to distinguish the destinations that bet on creativity to turn the new challenges of tourism into opportunities.

Also known as a Capital of Creativity, the brazilian city of Recife is a referent for the creative tourists who can experience the local culture through a wide array of  authentic proposals that go from an inmersion in the Carnival universe of Bomba do Hemeterio , a cooking class at Ilha de Deus, frevo dancing workshops or photographic routes, among many others.

 The city of Recife has always been a cradle of cultures and such a potential is now cleverly and sustainably converted into attractiveness for the new generations of travelers and a value chain that benefit to the local communities thanks to the pioneering Strategic Plan of Creative Tourism elaborated by the City Council and networks like Recria.

The Creative Tourism Network ® that participated in the impressive conference organized in December 2018 in Recife is now very thrilled to extend the collaboration with such a vibrant destination!

Many actions and projects are coming!
