  • When we talk about Aquarium, I believe most people think we know by TV, with wide varieties of aquatic animals, interactivity, attractions, etc. Because that's not what you'll find in BH, which reflects the contempt with which our Zoo is handled so many years. I visited twice (at the opening and later) and this third visit everything seems kind of played, left, as occurs at the Zoo in General. Regrettable.

  • Bad access, after paying the entrance ticket at the Zoo, have to pay the second ticket p/see fish trapped. They charge tickets of mentally disabled, physical handicapped, no one escapes, the Lady at the box office is rude. My son was so tired to climb the slope that I couldn't see anything, just sitting around. Also noticed that the animals in the zoo are hidden and back to the vizitantes as that feeling used and mocked. I'd advise against the tour. Add money and make diving/snorkel in a coral Sea c that will be much better.

  • Very interesting.

  • Exposure of fish typical of the São Francisco River basin, including the piranha, catfish and other species, some of them very curious. Reproduction donates Riverside environment. Affordable prices and free onsite parking. Worth checking out!

Where to stay in Belo Horizonte

Most of the city's accommodations lie within the inner ring road, in close proximity to the best attractions in Belo Horizonte. For convenience, look to stay in the vicinity of Praça Raul Soares, the city's central park and rotary. You can also find a range of high-rise hotels a bit farther south, in the neighborhoods of Boa Viagem and Savassi, close to Praça Diogo de Vasconcelos. About 10 km (6.2 mi) north of the city center, the 1940s neighborhood of Pampulha stands out as one of the most interesting places to visit in Belo Horizonte, and offers a decent selection of lodgings near the airport.
