  • Chill Out the Maranhense Way

    Alcântara Local Customs

    Soon after my arrival at Pousada dos Guaras I agreed with the boatman about the transfer across the canal to the beach. But after the journey from Sao Luis which started quite early in the morning, I wanted first to relax a bit. I was happy to find my new temporary home had a hammock on the terrace. There is no better way to relax than is chill out...

But most of the time the beach is only accessible by canoe, departing from Praia da Baronesa (the Baroness Beach), the most popular beach of Alcantara. It's easy to arrange the transfer across the canal with...

    Santo Amaro Restaurants

    We had quite long and hard day behind, a lot of difficulties with arranging all the transportations to Santo Amaro and back (luckily, at the end things have worked out quite well for us!), so we thought we deserved a good late lunch. They recommend Pousada Agua Doce. It is in fact a very nice place to stay, and besides, it has excellent restaurant....
