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.
