  • Great place to see some more of the story of Maranhão State, the part of archaeology has a good collection of people who inhabited the region and the indigenous culture, the boy who is in this sector receives 1000 note for education, responsiveness and knowledge relayed and explained. The location is in the historic centre, during the week, parking is not easy, but worth visiting.

  • The CPHNAM is a very interesting site, divided into two floors and four environments. On the first floor and first environment, part of paleontology, where fossils and prehistoric species of the region. On the second floor, the other environments. First, archaeology with ceramics and pre-colonial artifacts; second environment, Ethnology with objects of uses of the tribes inhabiting the Maranhão and the third and last, a small room with screens and a multimedia video screen. A great place to take the kids that gets very curious about the dinosaurs. In a countertop can touch a piece of dinosaur bone and a fossilized stem. Recommend!

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.
