    In my opinion, not worth the entry. The input value is high for what the establishment provides.

    Stay in the Zoo of BH. The entrance to the Zoo is 0800 more the Aquarium paid. It might be better to structure and enhance the site. A great time to get to know the history of the são francisco River.

    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!

    Really liked it! I took my children to meet fish, loved it! A pity not be private administration, I think we'd better watch 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.
