Belem is one of the largest towns in Brazil, and it is also one of the biggest tourist attractions in the country. This is mainly because of the colonial architecture that has been preserved over the years. Sights like the Theatre of Peace and the Mercado Ver-o-peso are examples of these. If you are visiting Belem, be sure to look for a hostel in close proximity to at least one of these wonders.

The hostels in the city of Belem are typically cheap and well-kept. You do not have to worry about a language barrier, as the tourist trade has resulted in most hostel owners learning English, Spanish, French, and other international languages. Hostels located near the Station of the Docks are in high demand. This is a set of three warehouses on the riverside that have been transformed into a marketplace and city center.

At the Station of the Docks, you get to walk along the promenade by the water, taking in the historical shipping cranes of the old docks. There is also an outdoor dining area with live music played above it. This center is free for anyone to enter.

Another architectural marvel you must see in Belem is the Teatro da Paz, or the Theater of Peace. This was built in the 1800s and features neoclassical architecture with columns and busts in the design. You can book a guided tour of the theater. Admission for the tour is free on Tuesdays, so try to visit between nine and five on this day.

For the botanist in you, the Zoological Park and Gardens is open every day except Mondays. It can be found right next to the Museum of Emilio Goeldi. It is lauded as one of the best zoos in the region and in Belem. The zoo features anacondas, rare birds, jaguars, and manatees. Try to avoid Sundays – they are quite busy that day.
