FABIO'S REVIEW

Green-Living
Yellow-Visiting

Curitiba was the first city I ever lived in Brazil (2015), as I reached it when crossing the border from Paraguay. It is a town with a distinct “European” flavor, reasonably priced and not too dangerous (for Brazilian standards).

After crossing jungles for weeks, I was happy to discover that Curitiba has more than 30 shopping malls, the best one being ""Shopping Estação"": it has almost 200 stores and restaurants! There are also a number of high-quality and relatively inexpensive hotels - I stayed in the Nikko, which had top class breakfast.

Tourist wise, there are very few attractions – the main one being the small botanical garden.
