Lake Paranoá is an artificial lake located in Brasília, the capital of Brazil. During construction of the city, the Paranoá River was dammed to form the lake, which has a circumference of 80km. On its shores are embassies and consulates, sports clubs, restaurants, the residential areas of Lago Sul and Lago Norte, the University of Brasília, the Olympic Center, and the Palácio da Alvorada, the official residence of the President of Brazil.EtymologyThe lake is named for the Paranoá River; its name is derived from Tupi paranã, "sea" and kûá, "bay, cove", giving "sea cove".

  • The Paranoá Lake is one of the cards the city portals. Has activities for all ages. Boats, Jet, SUP, paddle boat, can be seen every day. Worth the walk in the third bridge and on pontao in Lago Sul.

  • Beautiful scenery, good boating. But to stay on the edge is bad. Has no accredited kiosks. There's no toilets

  • Pretty much the Lake Paranoá-you can enjoy it for the Jk bridge, by the Pier, at Pier 21, by Hermida Don Bosco is a beautiful sight!

Where to stay in Brasilia

Choosing where to stay during your trip to Brasilia can be somewhat difficult. Due to the city's distinctive layout and lack of a historical "center," accommodations have developed in clusters. By far the best range of options surrounds the distinctive green space of Jardim Burle Marx, in the city's two planned hotel districts. You can also find a good selection of lodgings around Vila Planalto, the city's designated political district, which sits not far from Brasilia's main lake. Wherever you decide to stay, make sure it's within reasonable distance of a metro station or bus stop--you'll want good access to public transport in order to easily navigate the city.
