Guess what? Cuiabá is also named and spelled Cuiaba - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

Cuiaba is a city in Brazil that is often called the gateway to the Amazon. It is a city filled with activities to do and many sights to see. There are many natural locations to explore, as well as a colorful culture in which to immerse yourself. From the mountains and wetlands to heritage sites, this old city has everything you need when visiting Brazil.

Accommodation in Cuiaba is easy enough to find, due to the tourist-funded economy of the city. Many affordable hostels can be found near the city center and the local landmarks. Hostels here are known for their great food, fun owners, and their cleanliness. You can ask your hostel staff for recommendations on what to do and see in Cuiaba.

One must-see place in the city is the Historic Center, which was constructed over an old gold mine. This suburb of the city is full of old, towering mansions that have fascinating 18th-century architecture built in the Baroque style. The mansions are located up and down a maze of winding, narrow streets that was constructed by the early settlers.

Cuiaba is also home to many old, beautiful churches. Many of these are an integral part of the history of the town. Nossa Senhora do Rosario, for example, was built in the 1700s by slaves. The Catedral Metropolitana Basilica Senhor Bom Jesus de Cuiaba is a more modern church built in the 1970s. The diversity of the city can be seen here too: a mosque was built in 1978 to accommodate the needs of the Muslim population of Cuiaba.

If you want to see more of the history of the city, visit one of the many museums in it. You can witness the cultural diversity of the indigenous population that first inhabited the region. Many local artists display the fruits of their labors at the local art galleries. In particular, visit the Museu do Rio for a refreshing look into the life of the first local settlers.
