Capital of Sun and Light

With average high temperatures above 30 C (86 F) year-round, Teresina holds the infamous title of the hottest city in Brazil. One highlight of the city is a well-loved water park where you can ecape the heat. Teresina is in State of Piaui (PI).

Where to stay in Teresina

Many of Teresina's larger hotels cater especially to businesspeople and are therefore concentrated around the city center. However, you can find a range of options across the Poti River in the eastern neighborhood of Jóquei, as well as several choices near the city's airport in the north. Most other neighborhoods offer one or two places to stay. Many of the city's accommodations are budget to mid-range options with decent facilities but not much atmosphere to speak of.
