Beaches Sightseeing Nature
In an attractive setting where the Tapajos and Amazon rivers meet, the city of Santarem draws ecotourists and culture enthusiasts with its pristine beaches and historical sites. Founded in 1661 by Portuguese colonists, the urban area is one of the longest-established in the Brazilian Amazon--as evidenced in historical churches and other buildings, as well as museums related to the colonial experience, art, and culture. Santarem itineraries tend to take advantage of the nearby freshwater beaches, which offer relaxation and recreation in equal measure. Get out into the surrounding jungle to see lush protected areas known for their wildlife and remote native communities. Use our Brazil vacation trip planner to arrange your visit to Santarem and other destinations in Brazil.

Where to stay in Santarem

The main cluster of accommodations lies just to the east of the Curuai-Santarem ferry dock. These basic, unpretentious hotels don't differ much from one another; views of the river are chief among the selling points. Move away from the water, and the lodgings get a little simpler, occupying formerly residential blocks, as opposed to the purpose-built blocks that line the riverside. The city's outskirts offer motels along the main roads, giving good access to the surrounding jungle areas.
