Considered one of the most beautiful river beaches in the World, by several magazines and newspapers such as The Guardian.

Also known as the Caribbean of the Amazonia, 30 kms from Santarem and International Airport Maestro Wilson Fonseca, Alter do Chão is the most touristic place from Santarem. The village of Alter do chão is Full of Terraces, restaurantes and Botecos, it surrounds the small island created out of the rainy season.
Alter do Chão is a place full of handicraft, made by its tribes from this region of Amazonia.
Its typical gastronomy, makes this region the perfect place to rest in the middle of the “Lung of the Earth”, where we can have all we need and, at the same time, a place where civilization never touched before.

In the surroundings we can only find Amazon forest and its prevailing green !
With lots of desert places with crystal clear water beaches coming from Tapajos River, small canals of clear waters (which the most famous is Igarapé do Macaco). There is also a place which is part of our tour called Lago Verde. You have to visit it, because of its natural beauty, along with its bio-diversity where we can find dozens of fish specimens either ornamental or table fish.
We usually take our tourists to know a small arm of the river Tapajos that crosses Caranazal until Alter do Chão, ending in the wonderful place called Lago Verde (Green Lake). Later in the day we use to watch one of the most beautiful Amazonia sunset by Cururu river, which is undoubtedly one of the most splendid places in Alter do Chão.
