Day 1

Arrive in São Paulo at about 5:30 a.m., Friday, after a flight from Boston on LATAM’s new non-stop route. While you be early for your check-in at Palácio Tangará, you can still head to the area and grab some breakfast. Spend time sightseeing on Paulista Avenue before lunch. Head to Baby Beef for an all-you-can-eat barbecue and buffet restaurant. Some of the best beef in the world comes from Brazil, so eat your fill. By the time you finish lunch, head to the hotel and drop your bags. If you want to recover from your long day of travel, kick back at the resort. Head to the hotel’s restaurant for dinner and spend some time exploring the area before turning in for the night.

Day 2

Kick off Saturday with a visit to some of the city’s leisure parks. Parque do Ibirapuera, open 5–12 a.m., is the most famous and home to the Museum of Modern Art, Oca, Obelisco de São Paulo and a monument to some of the earliest explorers of the state. The museums, scenery and history will keep you busy for several hours. For dinner, head to Osnir, a long-standing hamburger shop, for a taste of São Paulo’s recent culinary history. It’s a good idea to get a good night’s rest because Sunday is packed.
