The second largest state in the country is also the most populous in the northern region and offers great tourist attractions. The state is located in the largest corridor of protected forests in the world, with more than 717 thousand km² divided into areas of integral protection, sustainable use and indigenous lands, corresponding to almost 57% of the state's territory.

At the For, as in the entire North region, there are basically only two seasons: summer and winter. In summer, the rains become scarce and in winter, abundant. There are several cities and tourist places in Pará, among them are Santarém, Ilha de Marajó, Altamira, Alter do Chão, Algodoal and Mosqueiro.

The capital of the state of Belém offers numerous tourist attractions such as the Emílio Goeldi museum and park, the Ver-o-Peso market, the Docas station, the Theatro da Paz, the Mangal das Garças park and the Belém cathedral – being a strong destination for lovers of religious tourism.
