Centro de Artesanato, Barreirinhas

2.5
#5 of 7 in Shopping in State of Maranhao
A small crafts market, Centro de Artesanato sells handmade straw articles, from sandals and hats, to popular tote bags, wall decorations, rugs, table covers, and even lamp shades. All make excellent gifts and souvenirs, and are sold by local artisans at low prices. These regional artists are renowned for using a special kind of straw, made from a native tree called buriti. You can also buy local liqueurs here, as well as various types of regional food. Close to the center of town, this simple market is worth a short stop on a hot afternoon.

Where to stay in Barreirinhas

Barreirinhas serves mainly as a jumping off point for visiting the nearby national park, so the town's accommodation options remain relatively limited and fairly expensive. Guesthouses near the town center are probably your best bet, the majority offering clean but very basic rooms with few frills. You won't find any luxurious hotels here, but you can choose between several mid-range establishments providing air-conditioned rooms with parking and tree-shaded outdoor areas.
