Belem is the one place in Brazil where I have not stopped while sailing. Last time I asked that question to the local sailors in Bahia
and Recife (who know a lot about their flavor of NE Brazil security
or lack thereof) told me I should not plan to go in without prior arrangement with members of the club in Belem.
If you send me a pm with your name and email
address I will put you in touch with some Brazilian sailors who will put you in touch with the right crowd in Belem. That sort of process has worked very well for me in other Brazilian ports
