The city was founded in the beginning of the 20th century with the construction of the now abandoned Madeira-Mamoré Railroad. The railroad linked Bolivian rubber production with the navigable Amazon river. Porto Velho became capital of the newly formed Federal Territory of Guaporé in 1943, which was renamed Rondônia in 1956. Today the city has a population of almost half a million people (2013). Its economy is mostly based on service (83%).

The largest city in Rondônia state lies in a tropical monsoon climate zone with a wet season from December to April, and a short dry season from June to August. Annual average temperatures are around 25° C.
