"Teresopolis" Teresópolis by Zarah

Teresópolis Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 65 photos

Teresopolis is a great side trip from Rio. It's a quick three hour drive from Rio and the scenery along the way is spectacular. Teresopolis was developed by Swiss and German expats, hence the surprisingly charming Bavarian feel to the town. A stay in Teresopolis provides for a nice contrast to your beach vacation in Rio.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Cooler climate, less tourists, beautiful scenery

    This is a great review. There are so many books and reviews on Rio, it is wonderful to learn about lesser known destinations that make a great side trip from primary desitinations. I give you an A+ rating.
