Welcome to Boa Vista
Unless you're on your way to Guyana or Venezuela, there's little reason to visit Boa Vista. It's a pleasant enough riverside town with all the comforts and facilities of a medium-sized Brazilian city. But with Venezuela in a state of turmoil and considerable numbers of Venezuelans fleeing the country, Boa Vista's infrastructure was under considerable strain as of our last visit. When Venezuela returns to peace, Boa Vista will once again be a way station en route to Venezuela’s beautiful high plains.
