  • Mangaratiba is a city dirty, smelly and bad structure, a true slum. All very precarious, run this town if you want to go to the seaside. Prefer angra dos reis, Paraty or Ubatuba, which to me is the greatest city on the coast that were cited above.

  • Mangaratiba is a city that has everything to emerge in tourism, with beautiful beaches with calm waters and clear, but has no infrastructure to receive tourists. There are only a few resorts, isolated and supplying their own audiences. The city does not invest in the city. There are few options. There are no supermarkets, grocery stores, only few pharmacies and a public hospital that you pray you never need. The city has a humble population that could benefit from tourism, but this does not occur. If you are with money to spare and want to meet mangaratiba, I suggest to stay in one of the resorts, the more, the disappointment is almost certain, unfortunately.

  • Small town, however well. Easy access and great beaches to stroll with children, calm waters and not as cold. The city is ideal for those looking to escape the drive high season because there is so much tourist operation.

Where to stay in Mangaratiba

Given the attractive coastal location, it's no surprise that Mangaratiba's accommodations cling the seaside and focus far more on looking out than staying in. Stick to the coastal roads and you'll see pretty much every lodging option here, with choice mainly limited to low-rise hotels. These vary in terms of amenities, size, and cost; expect to pay more for those with a demarcated area of private beach. Pre-booking is essential, because of the relatively small number of options available.
