  • A little withdrawn but fully justifies the visit. The Lake at the bottom with the café/restaurant, is incredibly charming, as the entire Park. The wall that can be seen there is impressive and makes the steep climb later isn't as felt.

  • One of the best things I've done in Curitiba. The place is beautiful, silent, is huge and yields a good walk. It's full of ups and downs, but it's worth it. I highly recommend going!

  • Possibly the most beautiful park in Curitiba. I highly recommend enjoying the end of the afternoon and watching the sunset from the top part of the park. Simply amazing.
  • Like all of Curitiba's ethnically themed parks, this park is part of the water control system designed by the great local, world renowned architect and urbanist, Jaime Lerner. Tanguá, like many of these parks, was a quarry site along side of a small river or stream. Governor Lerner united the cultural richness of the immigrants who have contributed to the growth and success of Curitiba in the last century, the idea of controlling flooding in the city and the creation of attractions which might draw tourists to the city!! Total success! Tanguá is an especially complex and dramatic project. It covers many acres of area and houses today and long entrance pond with dancing waters, a multi-towered lookout complex which houses, bathrooms, gift shops and cafes and allows visitors varied views of the rest of the park 100 meters below and the forest and villages snuggled into the scenery. Down below, one can walk through varied scenes of woods and lakes, climb to a rocky-topped hill, pass through an old mining tunnel and climb back to the top. From below the view of the fabulous 100 meter man made waterfall is spectacular! Lerner and his team of urbanist in the heyday of their reign out did themselves in this endeavor! It is a half day endeavor again to see everything and the pictures you are able to shoot here are well worth the effort and climbing. If, however, you are not up to the climbing, you can stay at the top and enjoy the views. There is an infinity pond and smaller water fall on this top level, as well. They didn’t leave anything out!
  • For me this is the most amazing park in Curitiba. Almost sure anyone who visits there will fall in love. It's a little far from the downtown but worth each step you have to give to go there.
  • Beautiful views. This park is a nice place to relax with the presence of nature and listening to sound of the water.
  • Outstanding if you are a tourist this have to be on yoir must see list

Where to stay in Curitiba

Wherever you choose to stay in the city, you'll be able to get from place to place on your Curitiba itinerary in a breeze, thanks to the rapid bus transit system. Most higher-end hotels sit in or very close to the city center, especially along the pedestrianized main street of Rua XV de Novembro. Stay here if you want quick access to the best shopping strip in town. You can look slightly out of the center, in the neighborhoods of Batel and Seminário, to mingle with the city's posh crowd. Curitiba's continuing growth in popularity with younger tourists means you can now find any number of budget youth hostels, mainly concentrated in the center and inner suburbs.
