Standing in both hemispheres in Macapa, Brazil.

First things first – Macapa in northern Brazil is not a backpacker type place. However it is a really really cool raw Brazilian city to check out and we totally loved touring the city – special moments were crossing the Equator on foot and visiting the Fort. I mentioned there before in my Top 4 Sights in Macapa post. From Macapa we headed up towards Oiapoque on route to French Guyana. First though – in a city without a backpacker vibe or hostel, where do you stay? Answer – Hotel Mais!

A few cool things about Hotel Mais that we loved and I recommend you to stay here.

1. Friendly Staff
The staff don’t speak much English but a mix of Portuguese and French between us and we communicated well. They gave us all the details we needed to see the city – get to the bus station, see the monument on the Equator etc.
