Things to do: shopping, zoos & aquariums, sightseeing

City of Progress

The most populous Brazilian city not to be a state capital, Guarulhos has developed rapidly in recent years, and gained a reputation as a fun, modern, progressive city. Founded in the 16th century, the city has benefitted from its proximity to Sao Paulo, and today offers convenient access to Brazil's capital for visitors to the region. However, the city is more than a gateway to Sao Paolo, with a number of attractions in Guarulhos city center, including museums, a zoo, modern shopping centers, cinemas, and performance spaces. Out of the town center, some of the region's best nature reserves are ripe to be explored on a range of hikes, biking trails, and other ecotourism experiences.
