Belo Horizonte Travel Guide

Car Travel

Driving to BH from major cities is safe; the roads are in good condition, although exits aren't always clearly marked. BR 040 connects Belo Horizonte with Rio (6½ hours) to the southeast, and Brasília (10 hours) to the northwest. BR 381 links the city with São Paulo (7½ hours).

Belo Horizonte's rush-hour traffic can be heavy, and parking can be difficult. For on-street parking you must buy a card at a newsstand or bookshop. Taking the bus in Belo Horizonte is recommended over driving because of the traffic and the city's diagonal grid, which is hard to navigate.
