The boat trip is one of the best activities in Porto Alegre. During one hour you will know more about Porto Alegre´s history and all its connection with the famous Guaíba river.

For R$ 20, you can take a guided boat cruise across the lake. The tour takes around 1 hour. Inside the boat, you have toilets and a snack bar.

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
