Recent Reviews in Belo Horizonte

A one hour flight from the beach parties of Rio de Janiero is Belo Horizonte, the most tightly-knit entrepreneurs’ hub in Brazil. Known as the “garden city” because of its sprawling green parks à la the tree-lined Praca de Libertade square, Belo Horizonte offers its industry-minded residents plenty of beautiful city getaways in the mountains that surround it. For nomads looking to completely immerse themselves in Brazilian culture, the remarkably small-town feel of this city of 5 million of Brazil’s friendliest people is absolutely perfect. To truly assimilate to the “BH” lifestyle and Mineiro people, however, comes with a willingness to ditch English almost completely and adopt Portuguese for all day-to-day interactions – and not just any Portuguese, but the region’s own Mineirês dialect. Keep in mind that limited number of foreign residents also means a lack of convenient expat services.

Amidst the startup flurry of Rio and São Paulo in the last decade or so, Belo Horizonte emerged as one of the most thriving startup ecosystems in Latin America. It now boasts an incredibly well-educated workforce of entrepreneurs, four of the top ten Brazilian universities, and a Google center. In a joke gone viral, the city’s original entrepreneurs ended up dubbing the community the “San Pedro Valley.” The SPV is now at over 200 startups linked by networking events, coworking spaces, accelerators, all consolidated online in the community-bridging “San Pedro Valley map.”

But the business focus and hustle work ethic don’t equate to a lack of events and social opportunities. For culture lovers, the Instituto Inhotim contemporary art museum is as seductive as it gets – a huge, otherworldly outdoor complex 1.5 hours from the city. There’s also the renovated Mineirão football stadium that hosted the 2014 World Cup and the neighboring Pampulha Complex situated on a serene blue lake. Rumor has it that BH has the highest concentration per capita of bars in the world, so your nightlife options are plentiful. (“There are no seas, thus there are bars,” the locals say.) There are also many free shows and events throughout the year, most notably the Praia da Estação – a giant “beach party” in one of the city’s main squares – and the Comida di Buteco – a city-wide competition of soul-soothing gastronomical miracles. The cost of living in BH is also cheap relative to Rio and São Paulo (accommodation can be half the price!), so you’ll be able to enjoy a fair number of paid outings and activities on a $2000 budget.
