Want to visit a unique urban metropolis? With its mountainous backdrop - the name literally translates as “Beautiful Horizon” - Brazil’s sixth-largest city is brimming with exciting markets, scenic parks and spectacular concerts.
You have several options for exploring this great city. Belo Horizonte has a range of bus routes, including the SC buses which travel around the downtown area. All the buses in the city are colour-coded for a stress-free experience. If you’d like to discover the city on foot, be sure to take a map as navigating can be tricky! But if you’d rather not, there are more than enough taxis to go around.
Enjoy a true sunshine-filled holiday in Belo Horizonte. The warm season is between January and March when you can enjoy highs of 29°C (84°F) on average, so don’t forget your suncream! While the cooler season lasts from May to July, you needn’t bother with a jacket as temperatures will generally range between 16°C (61°F) and 24°C (75°F). Oh, and April to September are the driest months, too.
