    Despite how wonderful that can be the Pampulha Lake, has a b-side, the waters around the Park became blue and with a scent that leaves you dead when I visited this place in December 2016...

    Very large park the Pampulha Lake, with many architectural attractions of artistic character have to be seen. Recommend moderate visitation because the place is very extensive and is required to be in good physical condition or car for all to know.

    Although it is closed at the moment because of restrictions imposed by the city due to Rocky Mountain spotted fever ticks from the Capybaras, this park is a great leisure option in Belo Horizonte. It is worth visiting it when of your release.

    Nice park in the Pampulha region surrounding Pampulha lake. Unfortunately the lake is mostly contaminated and sometimes there is an unpleasant smell. No pets allowed at the park which is very unfortunate.

    Beautiful place. But it smells bad sometimes and there are lots of people waiting to charge you for parking and for "watching your car", it actually feels like you are getting mugged everytime you go.

    Nice and clean, but parking is hard

    Beautiful, well kept. Waterside is a bit smelly.

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.
