  • Spacious and beautiful Lack maintenance, with tingling growing along the garbage cans and benches. It is possible to see many animals, which look very healthy and well treated, despite the trash thrown by some regulars. A good walk with the family has good Drover, very simple but tired. Filthy bathrooms and lots of dirt. I saw several regulars throwing trash on the floor. I think I lack funds to the Zoo. Despite lack of maintenance is still a good program for children.

  • The Zoo of BH has been a good place to visit. Today it is noticeable the carelessness with the location. Taking the Bird Park, which is still well tended, the feeling we get is of complete abandonment. It has not been possible to see many animals, especially as there are many empty cages. The Japanese garden is ugly. The food court is awful and is literally falling apart. The bathrooms are disgusting. The value of the entry of people and vehicles is not high, but for me it doesn't justify your billing, because it seems to be no on-site maintenance.

  • my kids love especially the gorillas, and the fish. very good place for a vacation, for example, just don't like the price of the stalls, which are many, with bad food and high prices. recommend bringing picnic basket, some take up barbecue, but I don't like to bother the animals.

  • The zoo is great for a family walk. There is lots of beautiful green space. My daughter (4 months - in a stroller) and husband went on a Saturday and it was relaxing. The aquarium is the worst I have ever seen and it requires to pay an extra fee of 6 reais per adult (very little, but I wouldn't even pay 1 real). The aminals were great when they were out and able to see.

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.
