"A real tourist trap is the..." Brazil Tourist Trap Tip by TWINE
Brazil Tourist Traps: 38 reviews and 27 photos
A real tourist trap is the famous city 'Ouro Preto' in Minas Gerais - crowds of tourists and locals who run after you, trying to sell themselves as guides or their goods. Better options are Sao Joao del Rei or Tiradentes - both are also in MG and both are old cities with similar styled-buildings like in Ouro Preto, but the atmosphere there is much, much better. Try to come during during the eastern Holy Week ('Semana Santa') - churches are wonderful decorated and the locals celebrate. Please check out my page 'Belo Horizonte' - it is the capital of Minas Gerais, and I have listed all related tips and stories there.
