Gorontalo is a provincial city with not much tourist interest, apart from diving. Most of its inhabitants make their living by farming and fishing.
There is some accommodation in the city, but no beach resorts. The best place to stay if you are diving is Oasis Hotel, which has its own dive center. If you are only passing through Gorontalo, on the way to the Togian Islands, Melati Hotel is a good option; many backpackers stay there.
