About Sao Paulo
When booking your tickets please notice the Sao Paulo International airport is GUARULHOS (GRU) distant 45 km from the city center.

Sao Paulo local airport is CONGONHAS (CGH) for some other Brazilian cities destination.

As reference for accommodation in Sao Paulo, we had been searching for some hotels which could offer special prices for groups. We can have some deals with 4 stars hotels category around areas of interest for the meeting logistics, which costs around 90,00 euro /120,00 US dollar (single rooms) and 100,00 euro/ 140,00 US dollar (double/shared rooms), including continental breakfast.

Eating in Sao Paulo costs from 6,00 to 20,00 euro / 9,00 to 30,00 US dollar.
You can even spend more if you like!

Local Transport
You can go around the city by tube for 1,00 euro each way or by taxi for around 12,00 euro per 10km (if you are lucky on not getting stuck in traffic jam).
We don’t recommend taking buses as they are not very well signalized for foreigners (neither for Brazilians who doesn’t live in Sao Paulo)
