The Pindaré River is a river in Maranhão state of north-central Brazil. The Pindaré rises in the low hills which separate its basin from that of the Tocantins River to the south, and flows north into the Baía de São Marcos. The Serra do Tiracambu lies to the west, and separates the basin of the Pindaré from that of the Gurupí River.

The Pindaré basin is home to tropical moist broadleaf forest, and the river divides the Tocantins-Araguaia-Maranhão moist forests to the west from the Maranhão Babaçu forests to the east.
