    Could be better care, but remains one of the best options for children in Cuiabá. In the evening, be sure to enjoy the arrival of herons to sleep in the trees near the Lake. One inconvenience, now close the 5:00 pm on the weekend. Anyway you can see the graces sitting outside.

    We went as a family with two small children who enjoyed a lot of the bugs, which are many. Don't expect a big Zoo, on the contrary, is very small. Need to improve the conservation and informational boards. Has a diner just outside, where we had to ask the guard if there was one. We were very well attended her. Free of charge.

Where to stay in Cuiaba

As a busy state capital and a major hub of commerce, Cuiaba provides a good selection of mostly mid-range hotels catering to budget visitors. Truly luxurious hotels are a rarity here, but you can choose from many decent establishments offering clean, bright rooms. Look for accommodations near downtown to stay close to the best shopping, dining, and entertainment options. For a more authentic visit, check out the city's pousadas (guesthouses), which often occupy one or more floors inside restored historical buildings.
