Lencois Maranhenses National Park

Reviewed By Adriano F

For those who want an incredible experience, I super recommend visitation. The place has amazing views, especially if you are a photographer. You can gleam the sand dunes floating on the ground and feel the winds moving it. You can walk through the 'sand blankets' that's how we name the dunes here at Maranhão, a Brazilian state. And a literal translation to name the place. Blankets of Maranhão... LOL... So, enjoy it a lot!

Lagoa das Andorinhas

Reviewed By kunfoto - Vancouver, Canada

It is such a beautiful lake with clear water and white sand dunes around it. it is better to come here in the afternoon and wait for sunset. You can take amazing pictures with nobody around you. if you want to experience the landscape of Lecois with less tourists Santo Amaro is definitely better choice than Barri but it is difficult to get to. You need to take a two hour ride on a extremely bumpy sand road from the highway if you come from Sao Louis or Barri. Once you see the scenery you won't regret the effort.

Chapada das Mesas

The name comes from its plateaus, that resembles the shape of stone tables (in Portuguese Mesas means tables, hence the name), mainly concentrated in the cities of Carolina and Riachão. Its plateaus are due to the fragile sandstone walls formed millions of years ago, which were eroded by the action of winds and rains. This ecological sanctuary brings countless natural spectacles, unique examples of the Brazilian biomes. Undoubtedly, Waterfalls and their natural swimming pools of crystalline water, with mild temperatures around 22° C (72° F) in the midst of the immense rocky walls, are mainly responsible for the charm that surrounds Chapada das Mesas. Twisted trees and multicolored sandstone cliffs hide a paradise that can be outlined in numbers: there are 89 Waterfalls and over 400 crystalline water Springs inside the Chapada das Mesas National Park - PARNA -, a conservation unit that resides inside the Chapada das Mesas, in one of the country’s most fascinating regions.

A Chapada das Mesas, por não ser a mais famosa de todas (pelo menos no sudeste), pode passar a suposta impressão de isolamento e de natureza intocada. Ledo engano. O turismo em Carolina e entorno está estruturado e, infelizmente, em alguns locais, predatório. Entretanto, essa primeira impressão não borra a beleza e os excelentes momentos que se pode ter aqui: é só entender que aqui o ecoturismo está em outro estágio (e fazer o possível para não ser outro turista predador). Outro detalhe que a chapada vela e só se descobre aqui: o atrativo de fato é agua, e não a chapada em si. Aqui é o paraíso para maníacos por cachoeiras: maravilhosas. Muitos emendam o Jalapão com Mesas, em uma amálgama igualando os dois locais. Recomendo uma viagem separada para as Mesas, assim se conhece melhor as peculiaridades (a não ser que sua Jalapada seja longa e seja ampla nas Mesas e ampla no Jalapão). Recomendo conhecer as Mesas do Brasil (na realidade suas águas), são belíssimas.

Teatro Arthur Azevedo

Reviewed By AlexandreBorges - Brazil

It is said to be the second eldest in Brazil, opened in 1817. It's a nice looking theater on the inside, but it could be taken care of way better. It receives monthly a good comedy or play, but it is up to a schedule to be verified at your hotel.
Take care with streets surrounding the Theater for petty theft.

Ruins of an old church from Alcantara, Just the huge front of it is still up, the rest is gone. A lot of trash and empty bottles are inside it, the city should clean that periodically.

Cabure Beach

Reviewed By Ruth K - Athens, Greece

That title sums up pretty much everything! they have a generator in the four B&B on this beach, which are turned off at 10 in the evening! we rented a quadricycle as soon as we arrived and rode for one hour by the sea...deserted beach, eccentric landscape. In the afternoon, we took a boat up the river to see the sunset and guaras flying over our heads on the way to sleep, came back and had dinner at the B&B. A very pleasant evening....like in the old days, chatting.

Poco Azul

Reviewed By nsnishi - Rio de Janeiro, RJ

Conheço varios pocos azuis pelo Brasil, porem fiquei impressionado com este.
E o maior, mais límpido e impressionante dentre os que ja visitei.
O complexo também e muito bem arrumado com outras atrações e local para descanso e o restaurante tem uma comida bem gostosa.
Recomendo fortemente esta atração, você não pode perder.
Pequena atenção, tem um trecho de estrada de terra, mas da para ir de carro comum.

Fronhas maranhence

If you rely on the public transport, you're gonna have a bad time. The distance from the city of Sao Luis is big and the local market is quite noisy. But other than that, the place is great. Nice landscape, humble locals, so much fun.

Panaquatira Beach

Reviewed By CHPINTER - SAO PALO

If you like a quiet, clean beach and friendly people, pnaquatira beach and a good place to visit. You have kiosks where you can enjoy a good caipirinha and cold beer at a good price. check the schedules to not get to the high seas in order to enjoy the day.
