Capital of the Valley

Bustling avenues, tall buildings, and thriving industry typify modern day Sao Jose dos Campos, a city of nearly 700,000 people within an hour of São Paulo. With a history of settlement dating back to 1590, when Jesuits established farms in the area, the city has built its wealth on industry, from coffee and cotton in the 9th century to aeroplane manufacturing today. Although visitors mainly come for reasons of business rather than tourism, the city's nightlife and food culture provide plenty of things to do in Sao Jose dos Campos. Outside the city the municipality boasts the São Francisco Xavier district, known for its pleasant green hills and walking tracks.

Where to stay

The vast majority of accommodations in Sao Jose dos Campos are concentrated around the city center, as well as its surrounding inner neighborhoods, including Vila Sanches and Jardim Matarazzo. Catering mainly to the businesspeople who make up the majority of visitors to the city, many of the chain hotels fall into the mid-range and high-end categories, often with excellent facilities but not much character. You can find some smaller inns and guesthouses, which are more suitable for budget travelers, scattered around the inner city. For close proximity to a spacious park, look for accommodations around Jardim Bela Vista.
