  • Little town, that's the final impression. The people are courteous, the place is policed, the Church is beautiful. The day I was there was mass in the local church. At the end the priest left the interior of the Church and was bless vehicles and people who were waiting for him.

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.
