Welcome to Parnaíba
Parnaíba was a major port until its river silted up and its carnaúba-palm wax industry died with the invention of artificial waxes for cosmetics and car polish. Today it soldiers on as a market town and transit point for the new port at nearby Luís Correia. For travelers, it’s a stepping stone on the coastal route from Jericoacoara to the Lençóis Maranhenses, and the starting point for trips into the beautiful Delta do Parnaíba.
