Heading to Brazil? Soak up a mineral spa town experience

Known for the curative properties of their natural springs, a collection of mineral-spa towns in southern Minas Gerais forms the Circuito das Águas (Water Circuit). For more than a century people have flocked to these mystical towns, bathing in the pristine water parks and drinking from the bubbling fountains. Today the towns are especially popular among older, wealthier Brazilians. Plan Your Minas Gerais Trip.

    I'm Brazilian and I grow up in São Paulo. A great city to visit at the water circuit is called Lambari (South of Minas Gerais). This city is very little but offers a great recreational area with lots of pools to swim. Around the Water Park you can rent horses to ride around the city.
