Towards Belém-Brasília, the highlight is a very well-structured water park. But it's downtown that the city concentrates its sites: bars, restaurants and nightclubs ensure a very lively nightlife, all on the shores of the Tocantins River.
During the local summer holidays, these same waters offer visitors even more entertainment, as the river’s beaches can be readily enjoyed. It’s worth crossing the state border into Tocantins to enjoy the best beaches, located in the city of Filadélfia.
However, it’s in Maranhão territory that visitors find the most incredible attraction in the region. Between Carolina and Riachão (less than 300 km/186 mi from Imperatriz) lies the enormous Chapada das Mesas, a national park with hiking trails, waterfalls, canyons and hills that create a natural playground.
