A charming and enjoyable little town Sao Jose de Ribamar is located only 32km from Sao Luis. Traditionally a fishing town, it's also an important religious centre of the state of Maranhao. There is about an hour drive through thick palm forest and small hills. The bus stops in the town centre where you find a little square, Praca de Matriz, with some picturesque houses and the very beautiful Igreja de Sao Jose de Ribamar (Church of Sao Jose). The skyline is marked by the giant statue of Sao Jose.
One of the most popular areas is the Barbosa neighbourhood, where you can see fishermen at work or catch one of the boats leaving for small towns along the coast. We walked to the beach and had a stop in one of the many bars and rustic barracas to taste the local seafood and had a couple of drinks.
There's a very relaxing feel to the town, the people are friendly and the scenery splendid, so Sao Jose de Ribamar can be a nice day trip from Sao Luis.
