the main street leading up towards the center, from the harbour, has all the main hotels, including some nice cheaper ones.
belem has a good market down by the harbour, with a real jungle harbour feel.
apart from that there is no big tourist sites, but i found that the place has an interesting feel about it.

Hi ,

I have never been to Belem yet, but looked up for some informations at the Net and found this page:
http://viabelemdopara.viaglobal.com.br/Secao_19_11.asp

There you can find (if you understand at least a little bit of portuguese) some night-clubs, bars, etc. restaurants, ...
and of course Pousadas, voted by brazilians!

Another pages in portuguese:

Hope this can help you?

You should go to Docas complex, ancient harbour and now you have fluvial boat trips with local dances and music, souvenirs shops, regional food ( delicious ), bars, regional fruit icecream shop, permanent and temporary expositions and live music shows at nigth. I did the fluvial boat trip at sunset and really had a good time there. If you have time you can go to Marajo island too.

RE: RE: Info about Belém

Hotel Fortaleza (which isn't a hotel by any means) is a really good, cheap place to stay with a great atmosphere. It's a fairly down-at-heel place mind, with no air conditioning neither.

My room was right next to the kitchen area where the parrot-in-residence sits there on his perch, sqwaking away to beat the band. one morning I awoke when a middle-aged married couple (who work there, I think) were having something of a heated debate. This, combined with the constant chatter from the parrot made for a fairly surreal experience.

I'm sure I have you sold by now!

Travel Tips for Belém

Heavenly Tasty Tacaca

by mircaskirca

Tacaca is a dish of indigenous origem. This delicious soup is typical of Belem. In spite of that it's sometimes hard to find it.

The ingredients are: cooked manioc, shrimps, jambu (Amazonian plant), tucupi (yellow sauce extracted from a peeled root of wild manioc) and seasoned with pimenta de cheiro (sort of piquant pepper).

It is usually served in drinking vessel made of gourd. But don't expect to get a spoon! You drink the liquid and the rest you get with a toothpick. Sometimes life can be so simple... :)

Bacuri Beer

by mircaskirca

I am not really a beer lover however always like to try something new. But I love the fruit, especially tropical fruit, so I thought: Bacuri beer? Hum... Why not? It would be a pity not to try it. So I took one, and another time some more. I've never tasted anything like that! It was absolutely delicious!!

You can get bacuri beer at Amazon Beer, a beerhouse at Estacao das Docas, that has its own small brewery.

So sorry for the bad photo. It did not work neither with flesh nor without it :(

Icoaraci - The Production of Famous Pottery

by mircaskirca

The city of Icoaraci is an attractive riverside little town. It lies 23 km north of Belem. The highlight of Icoaraci is the production of pottery which is very famous. These handicrafts are a genuine reproduction of the Indian ceramics from Marajo and Tapajo areas. The "marajoara pottery" is considered one of the most beautiful and elaborated potteries in the world.

In Icoaraci you will be able to get some souvenirs and also admire the excellent work of the artisans. The better shops include Anisio Artesanato, Travessia Soledade 740 and Cultura Indigena, Travessia Soledade 790.

There are frequent city buses marked "Icoaraci" from Av. Presidente Vargas in central Belem. It takes about an hour to get therei.

my treasure

by pepples46

the pottery I was talking about.
survived my travels to Santarem and the Amazon, back to Nova Lima and then my departure from Rio, the Port of Victoria.
crossing the Atlantic, arriving in Hamburg/Germany .....when I immigrated to New Zealand, we made the trip together.

Not to Be Missed!

by mircaskirca about Sorveteria Cairu

The specialized ice creams of the Amazon are one of Belem's treats. Made from a variety of fruits, they are delicious and exotic and not to be missed. There are numerous flavours, mostly made from fruits without English names. The best thing to do is to go and sample.

I immediately became totally addicted :) Luckily I stayed in Belem enough time to get the opportunity to try the great part of the flavours :) My favourite flavours are cupuacu, bacuri, acai, tapioca, castanha-do-Para, mangaba, graviola...
