State of Maranhao

A unique blend of African, European, and Caribbean cultures make State of Maranhao holidays appealing to tourists interested in exploring a land known for its distinct cuisine, dialect, and musical heritage. With a long coastline characterized by sand dunes and secluded lagoons, this area also encompasses extensive swathes of tropical forests, traversed and irrigated by numerous rivers. Capital and World Heritage-listed city of Sao Luis remains a top draw on most State of Maranhao itineraries, but the region also boasts a string of smaller centers dating back to colonial times. These smaller cities manage to preserve their small-town atmosphere and architecture, which make them pleasant alternatives to the country's bigger and more crowded destinations. When using our Brazil trip itinerary maker, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
