  • Despite beginning to find the "gondola" insecure, I found everything incredible! On the way up we got a good view of the city, arriving on the Hill is a beautiful site. For me, the coolest thing was going up and down. Not recommend for people with health problems and even for the elderly due to the middle to get up the Hill.

  • Tourist point for a beautiful view and a very nice tour with a few elephants. Admission is free and does not last more than 40 minutes.

  • The view is sensational, with a small artisanal trade in back and a free elephant Park to visit.

  • There is an awesome view of the mountains and the city, which is spectacular. But far from that it is a little boring. Nonetheless is a must do in town

Where to stay in Campos Do Jordao

In keeping with the city's architectural style, most places to stay in Campos do Jordao are cozy wooden guesthouses or inns, rather than large hotel complexes. Concentrated in the neighborhood of Capivari, a couple miles northeast of the city center, Campos do Jordao's accommodations offer a relaxed, country-style atmosphere. Given the demographic of tourists who typically visit the city, you'll struggle to find budget lodging options, such as youth hostels. Reserve your room in advance, especially if visiting during the winter high season (May through August), to avoid disappointment.
