Rio Grande

(4.1/5 based on 1,200 reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: museums, sightseeing, historic sites

Bride of the Sea

As its nickname, "Bride of the Sea," suggests, Rio Grande's history, culture, and lifestyle is wedded to the ocean. The city of 198,000 boasts the world's longest uninterrupted beach, as well as an important port that has made it one of the richer urban areas in the country. No wonder, then, that most attractions in Rio Grande hug the Atlantic coast. Preserved colonial architecture around the old port, impressive cultural and scientific institutions relating to the city's maritime history, and abundant marine areas make for a varied itinerary in this popular, thriving hub.

Where to stay in Rio Grande

The area around the old dock offers the greatest number and variety of accommodations in Rio Grande, with pastel-colored family-owned hotels among the most charming options. Modern stand-alone hotels become more frequent as you step away from the water and the historical dock, with prices varying between them depending on amenities and ocean views. Hostels and guesthouses provide the budget options in this popular part of town. If you're looking to keep the cost down, consider staying at one of the hotels in the largely residential area to the west.
