In the parking lot of the University, across Igreja Fransisco de Assis. You have to get permission at the Faculdade, situated on the premises, in order to park your car here. They didn't mind us sleeping in our car). Quiet place.

Stayed in the center of the village, on the main square. No problem to spend the night there, although the local pub stays open until the early hours on Saturday.

From Visconde de Mauá to Itamonte via off-roads is an awesome drive which we recommend. We spent the night on the property of a friendly farmer.

It only cost 1 reais per person, but then it is a worn down place, and not very clean. Simply because we couldn't find anything in the neighborhood did we spend one night here.

Price: R$1 pp

Beautiful spot alongside the river. Sanitary facilities are clean, but too much garbage lying around. 25 reais a night (2 persons + car) was too much money considering the facilities. But spotting a jaguar, blue macaws and an iguana made it definitely worth the money. Owner is Oscar.

Price: R$25 per couple + vehicle

De camino a UlanBataar en agosto de 2007 durante el MongolRally paramos la segunda noche a dormir es éste precioso y solitario lago.
No hay nada cerca y no sabemos si es o no seguro.
Nos bañamos antes del anochecer, cocinamos con nuestro campingaz y luego dormimos en la tienda.

Nice friendly place when I stayed there. Clean suites with kitchens. Nice pool area. Off street gated parking. When I called they described their Hotel as a "residence hotel" for longer stays but, if you call and they have available suites, they will happily rent nightly. I would highly recommend this place.

An amazing 18nth century Jesuit mission established as part of one the the original settlements of the El Camino Real. We traveled many years ago to this location from the dirt road leading from Hwy 1 south of the town of Mulege. At the time the dirt road was passable by 2wd but was very rough and required decent clearance. Set at the base of a deep canyon with a fresh water stream, the two settlements of San MIguel de Comondu and San Jose de Comondu are amazing villages to visit.

When it's too hot in Cuiabá, this is a good alternative. River and beach. During the day it may be busy with day tourists from Cuiabá (25 kms) but it was quiet at night.
