Nature comes right up to the pavement, encouraging visitors to contemplate our use of the world’s shrinking green zones.

  • Don't forget to visit the Park Ecol. da Pampulha, a very beautiful place, well cared for, the pond with 18 km of extension good for sports practices, the beauty of the Ig. of San Francisco with the signature of Oscar Niemeyer

  • You see a lot of Capybaras sunbathing and you can rent a bike for a walk around the pond. Use insect repellent.

  • The location of the Park and your dimension are excellent, but there is around the various Park capybara which somehow takes a discomfort to the visitor, with a view to the possibility of the proliferation of tick.

  • After sometime closed because of ticks, the park reopened and is in good conditions although some areas are still closed it's a good place to spend some time.
  • Wonderfull view of this lake. Awesome Landscape
  • 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.

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.
