Don't let the city's nickname--"Land of Drizzle"--dampen your spirits during a trip to Sao Paulo.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Jardins District and Juquehy Beach. Get outdoors at Camburi Beach and Praia da Baleia. Take a break from Sao Paulo with a short trip to Camburizinho Beach in Sao Sebastiao, about 2h 15 min away. And it doesn't end there: get a new perspective on nature at Jardim Botanico de Sao Paulo, take a stroll through Liberdade, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosteiro De Sao Bento, and don't miss a visit to Paulista Avenue.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Sao Paulo holiday planner.
