Big, exciting and featuring an ever-present Latin American festival atmosphere, Sao Paulo is a stimulating destination. Take a stroll through the central business district and discover museums, coffee shops and churrascarias (eat-as-much-as-you-can beef restaurants). For a taste of authentic Latin spirit, make sure you sample caipirinha, Brazil’s notorious cachaca-based cocktail. The countryside and rainforests surrounding Sao Paulo are worth exploring too. Among the nearby tourist attractions, the Nossa Senhora Aparecida Cathedral is only a one-hour drive away and attracts followers of the Catholic faith from all over the world. However, if you are hankering for more city life, a short flight east of Sao Paulo will take you to Brazil’s other immense metropolis, Rio de Janeiro.
