Another posibility could be to travel by bus, but I could not find any exact information about bus-companies, timetables etc..

      Can everyone give me some sugestions, also for small hotels etc.

    • Taxi or airport bus?

      by eversure Online Now Mar 24, 2014 at 6:20 AM

      We are a family of 5 (parents with 3 teenagers). We need to get from GRU to Congonhas. Will it be more convenient to take airport taxi or airport bus? In most places we have gone to, the individual cost for the bus is sometimes just the same as for a taxi and the taxi seems to be quicker. Thanks.

      15 hour stop over in Sao Paulo. Is it worth it and is transport available at early AM hours?

      by Tickled_Pink Online Now Jan 8, 2013 at 6:39 AM

      Hi I'm flying through Sao Paulo and have an option of one of 15 two flights. the one is a short stop over which will not give us time to exit the airport.

      The second option is a wait of 15 hours before our connecting flight. This might give us time to book into a hotel and see a little of the city. What worries me is the time of departure of our connecting flight.

      1) Will the afternoon and evening be worth the visit into the city?
      2) If so do we catch a bus or train into the city and if so what connections?
      3) Which area should we book our hotel close to airport or night life in a safe area?
      4)Is there transport from the city to the airport so early in the morning. Our flight leaves at 6:20. what time to we need to arrive at the airport?

      Flight 1: Arrive Sao Paulo at 15:30. Flight leaves at 06:20
      Flight 2: Arrive Sao Paulo at 23:30 Flight leaves at 06:20

      Thank you

      travel agency in SP / RIO

      by Graffmann Online Now Jul 12, 2012 at 8:53 AM

      I will arrive in SANTOS in December 2012 by cruise from Europe. I would like to spend two / three weeks in Brasil before returning by flight from RIO DE JANEIRO. In this context I would like to ask for advice: Can you recommend a local travel agency which can deliver the following services:
      German (or English or French) speaking website / agents. Offering tours within Brasil (e.g. to Pantanal, seaside resorts, Iguazu). Taking care of individual transfer from port to airport (e.g. limousine, helicopter). I am looking for security and convenience rather than for “great deals”!
      Thanks for your assistance! Heinz

      Sao Paolo - Accommodation?

      by Glennaldo Online Now Jun 2, 2011 at 4:11 AM

      I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions for accommodation for a couple of nights in Sao Paolo. The main consideration is location - hopefully somewhere safe but convenient, near a metro line. Looking online it seems like there's the dorm rooms in the hostel or the100+ hotels - would like something in between.

      Any recommendations would be much appreciated.
