The NeighborhoodThe Minerva House is very near the International Airport in a quiet and safe neighbourhood (Lago Sul), one of the best of Brasilia, with a variety of supermarkets, bakeries, bars and restaurants.
Lago Sul (South Lake) is an administrative region of the Brazilian Federal District, where a large part of the Brasilia upper class lives.
There are no residential buildings and all residents live in houses of up to three floors. Despite being predominantly residential, Lago Sul is home to a few lively commercial centres and some attractions like the Ermida de Dom Bosco, Pontão do Lago and Ponte JK.
Getting AroundWe are just 5 minutes by car from the International Airport and 8 minutes from the main local commercial centre of Lago Sul, the Gilberto Salomão. There you will find most things you need in addition to lively bars, such as the famous Bierfass, great restaurants, shops and a night club.
If you have a driving license and would like to do tourism around the city, I strongly recommend you rent a car with a GPS in the airport. If you drive around Lago Sul, you will always find a place to park your car for free, don`t worry.
However, this is not crucial: the public bus service in Brasilia is comprehensive, safe and reasonably comfortable; from anywhere in the Plano Piloto, take a bus to the central bus station (Rodoviária), and from there you can go to everywhere else.
Brasilia also has a metro, which covers some parts of the city. It does not reach Lago Sul, but in the other areas it is clean and efficient and it provides easy access to the city center from a location not too far from Minerva House. Other Things to NoteIf you are coming to do tourism, notice that most places of interest (Museums, the National Congress) are close to each other - walk or take a bus.
Distances in Brasilia are longer than it seems. Blocks in Brasilia are large. Often, it is necessary to take loops and detours to reach a specific building in an specific block.
Taxi drivers are known to take advantage of all this; taking a slightly different route can add several miles to the fare meter (there are no easy ways to go back to the right route).
Prices: the 12 km between the airport and the central bus station may reach R$ 60.
Good practice in Brasília regarding taxis: make use of radio-taxis, even more so than in other cities. Most radio taxis in Brasilia give discounts of up to 20% (without any previous registration or requirements).
Practically every taxi in Brasilia has a radio on board; because of this, there is usually a taxi in the neighbourhood, and it won't take long for it to reach you; besides, the radio adds to the safety of the taxi.
