Family Travel Ideas in Sao Paulo

Edit This

Featuring world class service, accommodations and attractions, the largest city in Brazil is a terrific family destination. With a wide variety of cultural, historical and modern attractions, Sao Paulo is a great place to spend some time together as a family and make a memorable vacation with your loved ones.

Though the city is a bustling metropolis that's very different from the scenic attractions that draw visitors to Rio and Salvador, there are many things to keep you and your family entertained during your stay. Whether you will be making a one or two day trip to the area or planning your entire trip around a stay in Sao Paulo, you will find that there is something for everyone here at this hub for shopping, eating and entertainment.

Avenida Paulista

A great place to start is a stroll down the Avenida Paulista where you can stop in on such attractions as the Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo or the Instituto Itau Cultural. There are numerous restaurants and shops interspersed throughout the avenue that make for a good time whether young or old. Catch a movie at Espaco Unibanco or enjoy a nice family dinner along the avenue. From here it is easy to reach most spots in town, either by bus or underground transportation.

Parque Ibirapuera

This urban park truly has something for everyone. Rent bikes with your family and explore the park on wheels, enjoy a game of basketball or soccer at the courts/fields here, or for the younger set, enjoy the large playground on site. The planetarium, Japanese Garden and selection of museums here make this a great family friendly destination that is perfect for a couple hours or a whole day, depending on the age and interests of your children.

Kid-Themed Parks

There are a few kid-themed parks in close proximity to the city that depending on the age of your children are a great addition to your trip to Sao Paulo. Hopi Hari is located in neighboring city Vinhedo (about a 1 hour trip) and features several roller coasters and a circus show. This park is suitable for children 5 years and older. Bus service is provided by the park from the city, or the park can be reached via rental car. Closer to the city is the Playcenter, the oldest park in Sao Paulo. Rated for children 3 years and older, this park has numerous attractions including roller coasters, free falls and other rides. Take a taxi here, as the streets are not well marked.

Just because Sao Paulo is a metropolis doesn't mean that there are not ample opportunities for family travel. Book your trip and begin exploring your options early so that you and your family have the most memorable trip possible.
