The Capital of the Middle of the World

The equator cuts right through Macapa, giving the town the playful moniker of "The Capital of the Middle of the World." The city is accessible by air and sea; it sits along the Amazon River very near where it reaches the Atlantic Ocean. Very few roads link it to the rest of Brazil. Macapa represents a popular stop on the way to French Guiana and is a hotspot for migratory birds. With nearby national parks, plan for nature hikes and waterfalls in your Macapa itinerary, or visit some of the area's beaches. Our Brazil itinerary planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Macapa

Macapa offers a relatively small variety of mid-range hotels and accommodation options. As this isn’t a common backpacker town, you may have trouble finding hotel staff who speak English, so come prepared to speak some basic Portuguese or bring a good phrase book. Look for accommodations in the center of the city to be within walking distance to most attractions, or stay near one of the few roads into town.
