Pro tips!

  • Airports in Brazil can be very busy during National holidays; we recommend to avoid those dates.
  • Flights with late night arrivals can be a problem; there will not be lower cost transfer to the main bus terminal to transfer to other cities in the State of Sao Paulo.  Additionally there are no buses leaving the Capital from midnight to 6 A.M
  • Make sure not to arrive on a city holiday.  Offices will be closed either in Campinas, Limeira or Piracicaba campuses.
