Alter do Chao

(4.7/5 based on 1,500+ reviews for 4 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, nature, shopping
Officially an administrative district of Santarem, and unofficially the town's main selling point, Alter do Chao lies 33 km (21 mi) west of the town center. Most of the attractions in Alter do Chao hug the right bank of the Tapajos river, whose tides determine the size of this town's famous little island. Freshwater beaches offer ample room for relaxation and play, while the natural diversity of the marine environment, wealth of boat trips to wider Amazonian areas and remote communities, and beachside restaurants mean you can do much more than sunbathe. Use our Brazil family vacation planner to plan your trip to Alter do Chao and other destinations in Brazil.

Where to stay in Alter do Chao

Modest in size and proud of it, Alter do Chao has a small selection of accommodations, but there's enough choice to suit the tastes of a varied set of travelers. Hostels provide a pleasant budget option, with rustic rooms and atmospheric grounds. Simple hotels give a few more services for an increased price, though the rooms lack the individuality and character of their humbler counterparts. Bed and breakfasts represent a solid middle ground in terms of character, cost, and amenities.
