Alcântara is a town in Maranhão, Brazil. Mostly visited on day trips from São Luís to get an even more colonial feeling.

An hour long boat ride from São Luís, two boats in the morning, returning in the afternoon.


The Pelourinho


Reportedly there is some scattered nightlife here Thursdays through Sundays, then completely dead the next three days.
