Based in the north east of Brazil, São Luís is out on the peak of the country's coastline. Hire a car in São Luís and you will be able to explore the stunning landscapes of Maranhão, which include lush rainforests and the stunning dune fields of Lençóis Maranhenses National Park. There are plenty of museums to soak up the culture of the area, the Cafua das Mercãs and Museu Histórico e Artístico do Estado de Maranhão being just two of the historical highlights. There are also plenty of beautiful beaches to explore along the coastline. Just flit between resorts or relax on the white sands.
The Palácio dos Leões is a beautiful building to see while you're in the area. Situated right on the coastline, this former state governor's palace is bursting with valuable antiques and art, it's open on afternoons from Wednesday to Sunday and well worth heading along to if you plan to hire a car in São Luís. Based just behind it is the Casa das Tulhas, a market dating back to the 19th century that now provides various foods and craft stalls daily, a great place to find souvenirs or to try local delicacies and flavours.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
