Monte Verde

Brazilian Switzerland

Perched high up in the Mantiqueira Mountains at 1,550 m (5,085 ft) above sea level, the small town of Monte Verde attracts visitors looking to escape Brazil's tropical heat. With temperatures dropping as low as -10 C (14 F), the mountain town has earned the reputation of being "a little slice of the Swiss Alps" in Brazil. The town of about 5,000 people has retained its traditional mountain architecture, displaying plenty of colorful, wooden houses with sharply peaked roofs. Surrounded by dense forests, nature does justice to the town's name, literally "Green Mountain" in English. Monte Verde is in State of Minas Gerais (MG). Use our Brazil trip planner to arrange your visit to Monte Verde and any other destinations in Brazil that take your fancy.

Where to stay in Monte Verde

For a small town, there are an exceptional number of accommodations in Monte Verde. There's no particular hotspot to aim for--almost every street offers several places to stay in the form of small inns or bed and breakfasts housed in traditional wooden houses. You can find a few larger hotels toward the edge of town or just beyond its limits. The high level of competition has ensured good-quality rooms and high standards of service across the board, in fact, plenty of accommodations offer spas and other luxury comforts as a part of your stay. Reserve your accommodations in advance, especially in January and February, when the town experiences its biggest influx of the year.
