Best Sunset in the world!

We're not known around the world as other famous cities out there, but once you get a chance to see our sunset at Rio Guaíba you'll definitely want to stay in our city for good.

If you want to be in peace and see one of the best sunset in the word, you need to go to Guaiba Lake. Before the sunset you can make a boat trip. I recommend!

Our accommodation was very close to the lake and we visited it often. One weekend there was a street fair with food stalls and an art exhibition which was a lot of fun. A nice place for a long walk or to sit and watch the world go by.

Guaiba is a river or lake? I don´t mind. Its color nuances are great. Don´t miss the sunset in its shore. it´s considered the forth most beautiful in BRazil.

One of the only cities in Brazil where the sunsets are on the water. The river itself is dirty, you cannot swim

Take the boat cruise from the gasometro station. It is a one hour ride and it is worth the view you get from downtown Porto Alegre.

I would not recommend. Dirty lake. Not much a traction there. You can take a ferry there but that's not something I would spend my time with...

Embarked on a boat trip on the river and decided to have lunch. The tour lasts an hour and the scenery is interesting. You can see a very beautiful villas set along the river.
