Sao Lourenco

(4.1/5 based on 3,800+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: parks, shopping, museums
Marking the halfway point between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, the quaint town of Sao Lourenco sits amongst green, gently rolling hills. Known for the healing waters produced by its natural mineral springs, the town of 42,000 people relies primarily on tourism, with retail and medical services also supporting its economy. Immersing yourself in the mineral waters tops the list of things to do in Sao Lourenco, with several resorts and a water park offering the opportunity to take a dip. The town's elevation gives it a relatively cool climate by Brazilian standards, making it a good refuge to escape the heat. Make your own Sao Lourenco vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Brazil itinerary builder.

Where to stay

Unsuprisingly, the majority of accommodations in Sao Lourenco sit within a few minutes' walk of the large mineral lake in the center of town. You can stay on the edge of the lake, or next to the nearby park, to have easy access to the mineral springs that attract most people to the area. To feel closer to the natural surroundings, stay in one of the friendly, family-run inns on the edge of Sao Lourenco--most offer large gardens and some have even more land (you may find yourself among farm animals and vegetable patches as your hosts tend to their homegrown food).
