In this note we construct measures of maximal entropy for a
certain class of maps with critical points called Viana maps. The main
ingredients of the proof are the non-uniform expansion features and the slow
recurrence (to the critical set) of generic points with respect to the natural
candidates for attaining the topological entropy.
