Tourism in Parnaíba

The state of Piauí and in particular Parnaíba and Luis Correia are benefiting from a huge amount of interest in Tourism, The state governor Wellington Dias has recently visited Europe (Portugal, Italy and Spain) and seen for himself the benefits Tourism can bring to an area.

Delta Imobiliários do Brasil Ltda trading as ‘DDBrasil - Delta Developments Brasil’ a new construction company created with the purpose of giving English speaking people the opportunity to take advantage of low cost villas in an idyllic paradise location. The company was formed by knowledgeable professional from both the United Kingdom and Brasil who have extensive experience of property development and are helping people through the purchasing process. The advantage of having both British and Brasilian’s involved is the best of both worlds, on one hand people who know what Europeans want and the other people knowing the language, custom and mechanism of building in Brasil.

There are several beautiful sites to see near parnaiba. The Delta tours, the pedra do sol beach and the central cultural are just a few.

The government

The state government has given full backing to DDBrasil and its projects in Piauí and in particular is looking forward to the completion of the first project Belamina; whilst this is Delta Developments Brasil’s first condominium they have been involved in selling, building and renovating properties in Brazil for 5 years. The CREA (Engineer) Francisco Wilson Filho has over 20 years of building properties in the state of Amazonia including large shopping centres and residential condominiums.

This project has been given the backing of both the local and state government who appreciate the importance of this project, the area is primed for tourism and they realise the huge benefit that tourism can bring to the area and will surely optimise and enhance the tourism which is already in the area. The prices of this development have been kept deliberately low to ensure the project can be speedily completed and the condominium used as a show piece for further development.
