Our private local guides will show you the best of this enormous, multicultural and cosmopolitan city at the centre of Brazilian culture

Sao Paulo is the name of both the city and the surrounding state. Referred to affectionately by the locals as ‘Sampa’, Sao Paulo city is a giant sprawling metropolis of almost 20 million people making it the largest city in Latin America and one of the biggest in the world. Although it is not known as the most beautiful city and usually not included on most tourist’s itineraries, Sao Paulo offers some of Brazil’s best museums, gourmet restaurants, excellent shopping, a thriving arts scene and a few outstanding luxury hotels. Outside of the city there is a wonderful coastline with some pristine beaches or go inland for rolling hills and rural life on a traditional fazenda.

Best Time To Visit Sao Paulo

The best time to visit Sao Paulo city is between April and November when it is cooler and drier. The summer months of December until March are very hot and have frequent afternoon showers. However, if you want to go to the coast, then the hotter months of December until March are a popular time to go as this is summer in Brazil. The shoulder season months of March to May and October and November are also great times to visit.
