Where to stay in Minas

With Minas' touristic emphasis far more on the surrounding natural areas than on the town itself, accommodations tend to be pretty basic in the town. While a couple of luxury and upmarket options exist--with hotels offering private pools, onsite bars, and restaurants—hotels primarily feature simple rooms with limited amenities. Truly budget-friendly options lie tucked away in the side streets around the central area, with hostels and guesthouses chief among these. North of the city, really adventurous types may want to check out some of the region's most scenic campsites. Alternatively, explore the smattering of family-run guesthouses in remote areas.
