Where to stay in Caxambu

Old colonial-style hotels with onsite spas are the traditional choice in Caxambu, given its reputation as a spa town. Those with a more authentic rusticity tend to be costlier, though time of year dictates prices more than competition. In the small city's side streets, you'll find a range of accommodations in newer-build properties, from simple hotels to bed and breakfasts in formerly residential blocks. All are less expensive than the spa hotels, and well positioned to get out and see the sights of the town and surrounding nature.
