  • After meeting Buzios, I feel that this craft fair lacked a bit of life. The locals were very tight side by side and it was very hot. I had fathers with small children and strollers for babies who got there and it seems that they not noticed that it was full of people and that the hallways were very narrow walking. Take into account the lack of space and air if they plan to go with their children, the ideal would be that one parent stay out with children while the other shop, to avoid the crowds and heat.

  • Place with great variety of crafts to low prices and negotiable. Middle hid in Central Maceio, but worth the visit. Lower prices of pajuçara.

  • The place is wicked, owned several stores offering different products with huge variety of utensil made out of clay, nets, clothes, clay, wood crafts, paintings, cachaça. But for those looking for varieties of key chains, mugs, magnets, small decorations and party favors ideal is to go to the craft or the Feirinha of handicrafts, both are close to each other on the edge of the beach between Ponta Verde and Pajuçara. The parking place is free, just being ideal to provide a box for the boy, nice, which helps in the parking lot opening for access. One of the streets around has a foreign trade fair, a little chaotic for those not used to it, a bit dirty streets. In another street there's a fair selling horti fruti and products of all kinds from tapioca flour market, grated fresh POO, and a variety of fresh and dried herbs, peppermint, boldo, wormwood, rue, medicines and therapeutic herbs, spices, rum. A little bit of everything, depending on your search is very worthwhile. You don't think any fruit with value greater than 2.00 reais. In addition to find different and inexpensive fruit acerola, cashew, graviola, Atemoya, etc.

  • That is a place in Maceió to buy, at the same, time souvenir in case you're a tourist, or to buy day-by-day tools typical from the Northeast and Alagoas cultures. Most of the product there presented are handcrafted. The prices are usually fair.
  • Normal.

  • What I sought found. It's not great but offers many options the fair price of pieces like clay pots network and souvenirs.

  • Place with great variety of handicraft products. But is poorly preserved requiring repairs and improvements in infrastructure, accessibility and parking.

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.
