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.

  • Continua lindo e bem cuidado mesmo depois de anos. Tem menos animais que uns anos atrás, mas ainda assim vale a pena o passeio. Único problema do lugar é o pessoal que não respeita as placas com avisos para não falar alto, alguns animais pareciam bem estressados com o barulho. Dica: chegar cedo (por volta do meio dia) porque o zoológico é muito grande e final de semana fecha às 16h.
  • Really nice park and well taken care of. The signs with the map of the park really need changing though. What's amazing is that it's free! Uber users might have difficulty getting a ride because of bad phone signal and few drivers nearby, but you can make due catching the municipal bus to the Boqueirão Bus station.
