Curitiba

Ecological Capital of Brazil

The word "Brazil" isn't often mentioned in the same breath as "excellent urban planning"--except in Curitiba. In fact, one of the major pleasures of a Curitiba vacation is how efficiently the city works, with well-integrated green spaces, an emphasis on recycling and sustainability, a pedestrianized central street that brims with energy, and excellent public transport. In 1974 the city opened the world's first rapid bus transit system, in which separate "tunnels" for buses minimized their impact on traffic. In keeping with the forward-thinking "Ecological Capital of Brazil," most of the attractions in Curitiba showcase modern, rather than historical, architecture. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Curitiba and add them to your vacation plans using our Brazil trip generator.

Where to stay in Curitiba

Wherever you choose to stay in the city, you'll be able to get from place to place on your Curitiba itinerary in a breeze, thanks to the rapid bus transit system. Most higher-end hotels sit in or very close to the city center, especially along the pedestrianized main street of Rua XV de Novembro. Stay here if you want quick access to the best shopping strip in town. You can look slightly out of the center, in the neighborhoods of Batel and Seminário, to mingle with the city's posh crowd. Curitiba's continuing growth in popularity with younger tourists means you can now find any number of budget youth hostels, mainly concentrated in the center and inner suburbs.
