Maceió is the capital city of Alagoas, a state in Northeastern Brazil. The city is a prime tourism destination in Brazil and has been recently elected the most beautiful Brazilian city by popular jury. With its rivers, lagoons and beaches, Maceio is a breathtaking illustration of natural beauty. The name Maceio originates from the words “Maçayó” or “Maçai-o-k”, meaning “that which covers the wetlands”. Historians differ on the original development of the city. Some give credit to a sugar mill that started in the eighteenth century while others attest the beginning of the city to a small beach village. Whatever the origin, by sea or sugar, Maceio is a place blessed by nature.

“One of the hot, up-and-coming destinations in the Northeast, Maceió is a navigable modern city set on some truly beautiful beachfront. It has a small but buzzing bar and restaurant scene and fairly laid-back streets; it’s also the gateway to wonderfully idyllic shoreline to the north and south. On the city’s beaches, vivid, emerald-hued water laps the powdery sands that are lined with palms and brightly painted jangadas (traditional sailboats). By night, local residents follow the meandering beachside path as it weaves past thatched-roof restaurants and palm-shaded football pitches. Maceió’s sights are relatively few, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy a great meal, catch some rays and soak up the relaxed atmosphere”. – Lonely Planet Guide.
