Orientation

Most of the main hotels, restaurants and services are within a block or two of Tefé’s two central plazas. The main plaza – not because it’s larger, but because it has the church – is Praça Santa Tereza, a long tapered wedge running roughly east–west, with the church on the western end. A block north is Praça Tulio Azevêdo, a more traditional square with trees, benches and newsstands. Beyond that is the municipal market and the waterfront. Both plazas are bordered by busy streets, along which flows a constant stream of scooters and moto-taxis.
