Paradise of Waters

Dazzling waters, long stretches of white sand beach, and the splendid colors of nearby mineral cliffs typify Maceio, the laid-back capital of Alagoas state. Steadily growing in popularity among international visitors, the modern city of nearly a million people has long been admired by Brazilian tourists, yet still retains its authentic, unspoiled atmosphere. One of the top things to do in Maceio happens on Sundays, when the city center closes to traffic and revelers gather for wild street parties, dancing, live music, and celebration. On the quieter end of things, surrounding lagoons and countless pristine beaches give plenty of opportunities for nature tourism in Maceio. Our Brazil trip itinerary builder app allows you to plan your trip to Maceio and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay in Maceio

Accommodations in Maceio crowd around the city's eastern shorefront, competing for a spot in the morning sun. The best places to stay during your Maceio vacation are the neighborhoods of Ponta de Terra, Ponta Verde, and Jatiúca. You can find everything from free-spirited hostels to high-class hotels and beach resorts along the coastal strip, within a stone's throw of white sand beaches. To get off the beaten track, go west to the other edge of the city, where palm-lined Lagoa Mundaú brims with birdlife and local fishers looking for the day's catch among the mangroves.
