Armação dos Búzios (pop. 24,560), known simply as Búzios, draws crowds of Brazilian and international tourists every summer.

Búzios is also a top off-summer destination, located as it is on a peninsula on Rio de Janeiro State's Sun Coast (Costa do Sol). The city gets an average 250 days of sunshine a year.

There are hundreds of hotels, pousadas and guest houses in Búzios, and you can find a charming place to stay in a wide price range. Most accommodations can be found in the central area and on four of the city's 20-plus beaches -- Armação, João Fernandes, Ferradura and Geribá.

However, you don't need to be right on the seaside to enjoy the city's wonders; one example of a lovely place to stay off the beach is Casa da Luz Guest House, listed on the selective Hidden Pousadas Brazil.

Accessibility in Búzios

Despite its large number of accommodations, Búzios is far from being a universally accessible destination. An architecture that tries to create the best views from the hilly seaside has yielded wheelchair-unfriendly designs with multi-leveled indoors and steps that meander up the property.

Even units built after Decree 5.296 (2004) which defines a minimum of accessibility for Brazil hotels, have failed to comply with its directives.
