  • I visited with a friend of the site. We gave several laps looking for birds. The place must have been beautiful in the past. He is currently a mix of sewerage with fetid water. A shame because the infrastructure around is good.

  • Park for walking and resting. It is a pity that half of the Park this closed due to ticks.

  • 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...

  • 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.
  • 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.
