  • SAO PAULO (area code 11) Hotel L´opera Av. Pedroso de Morais, 323 - Pinheiros - São Paulo Phone: (+55 11) 3035-1111 http://www.loperahotel.com.br/ Cab - Chame Táxi - Coopertaxi -LigueTaxi Tourist 3733-8000/ 3103-8100 2095-6000 / 3511-1919 2101-3030 / 3873-3030 - GRU Airport: 6445-3064 / 6445-2686 - DEATUR 3214-0209 / 3120-3984 General Info: The biggest city of South America also represents the economic power of the continent. The greater São Paulo has a population of almost 20 million inhabitants, 3 airports, many companies headquarters and also diversed leisure and culture activities. During your visit to the city you will have the opportunity to visit big and successful companies, as well as the most important university of Brazil and also go to good restaurants, museums and the excellent night life. At the end you will realise that São Paulo is not only one city, it is many cities within one, each one with a different way of life. Founded in 1554 by Jesuits priests, São Paulo is the main city of Brazil. The fourth biggest city in the world and the biggest of South America, São Paulo was born destined to become the economic and cultural heart of the country. São Paulo is also the largest port for all foreign visitors with a total of 1,345,000 arrivals by air per year. The business tourism and events, place São Paulo as a very important door for Mercosul and a straight line to all main cities in the world.Every year the city hosts about 70,000 people for fairs and more than 15 million of visitors. Nowadays, São Paulo represents the highest national consumer market, attracting the most important Brazilian fairs. If there are 170 fairs going on in the country, 150 are done in São Paulo. UBATUBA (area code 12) Tribo Hostel Address: Rua Amoreira, 71, Praia do Lazaro, Ubatuba Phone: +55 12 3842 0585 Phone: (+55 12) 3842-0585 http://ubatubahostel.com/ Cab - Rodoviária (12) 3832-1085 Tourist Police: - 1º Batalhão (12) 3832-1297 General Info: Ubatuba is located on the southeast coast, in the state of São Paulo. The population in 2010 was 78,801. Draped with the rich flora of the Mata Atlântica, the peaks of the Serra do Mar provide a dramatic, emerald-green backdrop to the winding Ubatuba coastline. This region has become a preeminent resort for well-heeled paulistanos, with its elegant beach homes and a number of stylish hotels and pousadas, especially south of the town. Heading north toward neighboring Paraty in the state of Rio de Janeiro, beaches tend to be harder to reach but also wilder and more pristine, and the little-visited Parque Nacional da Serra da Bocaina spans both São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro states. The town itself, known simply as 'Centro,' is perhaps uninspiring, save for its handsome waterfront promenade, pretty bay views and a few small beaches, but there is no shame in basing yourself here while you explore the northern and southern coastlines – and there's plenty of action at night. Ubatuba is considered, by law, as "The Surf Capital of São Paulo State". The city has received this honour because more than ten important surf contests are held off its beaches every year, including two world qualifying series, two Super Surf Pro series, and other competitions supported by such well-established brands as Billabong, Quiksilver and Dunkelvolk (which sponsored the 2009 edition of Ubatuba Surf Contest with more than 120 athletes).
