São Luís Off The Beaten Path
If you make it to Sao Luis, do take the time to visit Alcantara, the village at the peninsula off the old harbour of S.L. When there, stay at Pusada Pelourinho. Hire a boat and explore the nearby islands... I did it once, but I can no longer go back there, a promise I gave...
Alcantara used to be the old provincial capital, at colonial times. Some churches and ruins of portuguese mansions give it a very special atmosphere, don't miss it!Related to:
