Caraguatatuba

(3.2/5 based on 5,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, shopping, sightseeing
Sprawled across a wide, smoothly curved coastline, Caraguatatuba makes the most of its beaches, with warm weather, inviting waters, and expanses of white sand. According to some estimates, every summer about 1.5 million people come for a vacation to Caraguatatuba--more than 10 times the city's permanent population. Caraguatatuba's reputation for being less than safe, especially at night, can be a drawback, although crime is more likely to be targeted at locals rather than visitors. Use our Brazil travel itinerary planner to arrange the details of your trip to Caraguatatuba and other destinations.

Where to stay in Caraguatatuba

As you'd expect, the beach is the place to stay in Caraguatatuba. A multitude of hotels and beach resorts line the curved coastline, most of them with swimming pools and a range of other creature comforts. Look along Avenue Dr Artur Costa Filho for easiest access to the city's largest and most iconic beach. For budget accommodations, look inland to the neighborhood of Prainha. On its narrow streets you'll find an abundance of small guesthouses offering competitive prices, and they're still only a few minutes' walk from a palm-lined beach.
