Capitolio

4.4
Canyons · Outdoor Activities · Lookouts
Queen of the Lakes
With an urban reservoir and interesting geological sights, it's easy to plan an outdoorsy vacation in Capitolio. The reservoir's artificial beach offers a great place to relax in town, while local cultural attractions detail the history of Capitolio itself. However, most itineraries in Capitolio head into the landscape, where surrounding national parks boast deep canyons, sheer cliffs, and atmospheric caves cut into the land that circles Furnas Lake. Plan your visit to Capitolio and other destinations in Brazil using our Brazil trip planning app.

Where to stay in Capitolio

Given the general focus on outdoor activities, rooms in Capitolio tend to be pretty simple, and services basic. Save on costs by foregoing a room with a view, or avoid the main, purpose-built hotels of the urban area. If you do stay by the reservoir, expect to pay a higher price for some pretty spectacular views across the water. Heading a little farther out of town can also keep prices down, although some resort-style accommodations also lie in the remote areas, occupying big sites with abundant natural charm.
