Itatiaia

4.2
Nestled among green mountains, the small town of Itatiaia serves as a gateway Brazil's oldest national park of the same name. While it offers a handful of museums and churches, as well as some decent restaurants and bars, there aren't many things to do in Itatiaia itself. The nearby national park steals the show, with its excellent hiking and memorable natural scenery that attracts visitors from around the world. You can easily access the national park while based in Itatiaia (or one of the other nearby towns). Itatiaia is in State of Rio de Janeiro (RJ).

Where to stay in Itatiaia

Despite being the largest town in the area, Itatiaia offers relatively few places to stay. Your best bet is to look for accommodations in the town center, near Praça da Emancipação, where you'll find a few small hotels and inns. If you want to visit the national park, look for accommodations at the park's entrance, or even inside its boundaries, rather than in town. You can also find a much larger selection of accommodations in Penedo, just a few kilometers down the road.
