  • Darker urine-smelling and very few options. It is really a place that can easily be removed from your itinerary. What saves it is the craftsmanship that is sold there, many options and with fair price. Bad food, bad guy. If you are visiting the Porto das Barcas, that is the view of the sunset or for crafts.

  • Very nice location for watching the sunset under the bridge Simplicio Days and the movement of boats and pedestrians. where there are several restaurants and is located at most tourist agencies. Place to walk the night and visit the handicrafts shops and restaurants.

  • It is very good to learn the craft, buy souvenirs like "went on place and thought of you". You can take great pictures, has the colonial climate, it would be perfect if it weren't for the presence of several people on drugs, I got some 4:30 in the afternoon and I didn't feel safe.

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.
