On the lagoon, you can kayak, jet ski, and take rides on banana boats, just be careful as there are piranhas lurking in its depths. Several easygoing bars and restaurants serve delicious regional cuisine, which you can enjoy to the accompaniment of live forró music.

Where to stay in Parnaiba

Where the city nestles up to the banks of the river, find charming pousadas (guesthouses) offering a range of facilities and excellent views. Elsewhere in the town, simple hotels and pousadas dominate, with prices dropping markedly in traditionally residential areas. Hostels provide good options for more budget-conscious travelers, while rental apartments represent a good choice for those staying in the city for a little longer, giving an extra degree of independence to go out and explore the town and surrounding areas.
