Trip Planner : South America / Brazil / State of Rio de Janeiro / Araruama
You might not think it looking at the white sand beaches lining the Atlantic coast and the lakes, but there's plenty more to an Araruama holiday besides sunbathing. A good selection of parish churches make nice cultural stop-offs in this coastal municipality, alongside impressive government buildings, museums, and other cultural institutions. A small strip of land separates Araruama's lagoon from the Atlantic, and visitors get the chance to try a range of water sports on both, with lots of rental shops and sports clubs offering lessons. The fine ocean and lakeside beaches range from popular and activity-based, to secluded, quiet, and relaxing. With the Klarna Trips online itinerary creator, Araruama, and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.

Where to stay in Araruama
Araruama's accommodations lie along the north of the lagoon, as well as along the southern strip of land separating the lagoon from the ocean--so the real thing to decide is whether you want to be lakeside, or oceanside. The major hotels concentrate near the lake in the main urban area, particularly in the Centro district. They generally offer comfortable rooms at good prices, though many visitors' main concern is the view. As for budget-friendly guesthouses, you'll find some throughout the main town, although they're more common south of the lake along the Atlantic coast, where family-run pousadas offer basic rooms, many with excellent views.
