  • So I visited the high part, the garden where it is is well maintained and looks good in front of the cultural market.

  • Despite the historical value that the building has, the facilities are very poorly looked after. It's supposed to be the seat of a Museum, but the items on display are minimal and very unfunny. Admission is free, but I think it's not worth the time lost. A shame.

  • We went to visit the Palace Getúlio Vargas, but it was closed for renovation (actually, it seemed abandoned even). Pity.

Where to stay in Porto Velho

As a destination with few tourists, Porto Velho does not feature an overabundance of accommodation options, though you'll find enough of a range to fit most budgets. Avenida 7 de Septiembre has quite a few economy hotels and hostels, where rock-bottom prices sometimes come with dubious quality and cleanliness. Most of the city's more upscale establishments, which range from family-run guesthouses to midsize hotel blocks, lie near one of the town's main thoroughfares, Avenida Governador Jorge Teixeira. Few options exist farther outside town, and you'll likely want access to a car in order to get around efficiently as public transport in the area can be unreliable.
