But it doesn't stop there: other top attractions in Sao Luis include popular traditional dances and theatrical forms originating here, still performed today in a range of venues throughout the city. Meanwhile, a set of museums protecting local culture and history provide more context for your Sao Luis holiday.

Where to stay in Sao Luis

The more upmarket and characterful accommodations in Sao Luis can be found in the historical center, with atmospheric pousadas (guesthouses) and hotels in well-preserved colonial-era architecture. Head east of the Centro district to find budget hostels suitable for backpackers happy with simple lodgings, but who wish to be close to the main architectural sights. Larger, modern hotels lie along the island's northern coast, where a cluster of luxury and mid-range options offer rooms with sea views.
