Power and Voltage

The plug type and voltage in the Northeast of Brazil may be different from where you are traveling from. The voltage at the conference location is 220V. So, if possible, bring a power adapter, and be aware of the voltage and plug type differences.

Places to Eat and Tourism Attractions

You should definitely take the time to visit some of the touristic attractions around Porto de Galinhas. It is really worth it to visit the natural pools, take a buggy ride, do a raft tour at Pontal de Maracaípe, or even visit the Lighthouse in the downtown area. There are also plenty of options to get a taste of the cuisine from the Northeast of Brazil. You can find a map with suggestions at

Weather, the Beach, and General Recommendations

Even though it is winter, the weather forecast for next week shows that the temperature will lie between 23ºC and 30ºC. We also would like to draw your attention to the fact that the sea in front of the hotel is rough, especially during high tide. So, we recommend caution when swimming in the sea. Porto de Galinhas is a safe and popular tourist spot with strong police presence, especially in high season. However, like any tourist destination, exercise caution. Avoid poorly lit and secluded areas at night, be careful when walking alone, and keep your belongings secure.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon in Porto de Galinhas! If you want to get into the mood and listening to some local and traditional music from Pernambuco while traveling to FSE, please checkout the playlist at
