Started as an old indigenous village, Santarém is at the heart of Pará's Amazon, almost 870 mi (1,400 km) away from the state capital, Belém.
Its location is very special, at the intersection of the Tapajós and Amazonas rivers. Life in the region follows the flow of the waters, which flood the plains during high waters and reveal beaches when low.
Known as the pearl of the Tapajós, it is the most important city on the Pará countryside. It is only 19 mi (30km) from Alter do Chão, recently named by the English newspaper The Guardian as one of Brazil’s ten most beautiful beaches.
The “Amazonian Caribbean” however, is only one of the incredible beauties offered by the natural exuberance of the region.
