Where to stay in Maringa

You're most likely to find accommodation in the central grid of Maringa, which is bisected by the railway line and lies just north of the iconic Cathedral of Maringa. Stay in one of the larger hotels in the city center--and ask for a south-facing room--to experience views of the spiked cathedral from the comfort of your suite. If you want to make the most of the city's vast green spaces, stay near one of Maringa's biggest urban parks, Parque do Inga or Bosque 2. If you're driving and just planning to spend one night, you can find accommodations along the main arteries in and out of town.

  • As I am a student of biology, and at the time was part of a group that researched mammals we had authorization from City Hall to gain access to the inside of the garden. He closed a long time ago and plants and animals already recovered enough, having several species of native fauna. While researching the city began some revitalization works in your interior and apparently it won't be long before they open to the public. It's very nice in that it's a unique experience.

  • I visited a lot when I was a kid, I was a very nice place, beautiful and with a lot of kills, had a lake in the central region and was ideal for Sunday rides with the family and have a picnic. Too bad it's been closed for years and the municipal public power does not take the necessary steps to revitalization.
