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

    In simple words is only a building, there is nothing to do, I think that not even there is a cafe nearby. It is only to go and take a picture

    Was going to ask what's there, seems to be governing body. But I was scared by the number idlers and vagabonds who infest this square. Police doesn't exist, so take no chances.

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.
