When I asked my kids what their favorite place to visit in Sao Miguel, they quickly answered Furnas!
First thing you see is a large scenic lake with a historic pretty old church in the distance. As you drive further you can start to see the clouds of steam coming from the geysers. Once you get into the parking lot you can smell the rotten egg type scent they give off. You get use to it pretty quickly since its so interesting to see the water bubbling out of the ground. We were lucky enough to watch the locals lower the pots of the traditional cozido into the ground to be cooked by the heat of the geysers. The entire process was pretty cool. My only regret is not getting to try some. The day we visited, there was also a snack truck with some seating where you can enjoy the view. Not sure if that is there every day.
