Travel tips

Did you plan the transportation? 


Most foreigners visiting UNICAMP prefer to use Uber. Uber Services tend to be cheaper and easier to use than taxis. Get a price estimate - Sao Paulo via the link.  From GRU (Guarulhos Airport) to UNICAMP: 300 reais (12:59 27/nov/2023) 

In case you decide to rent a car at the airport, notice the following, please: "Brazil's 'Dry Law' stipulates that drivers must have a blood-alcohol content of zero. It empowers police to administer breathalyzer tests if drivers behave erratically." (click the link for the details) 

It's a bit complicated to use public transportation in Brazil. 

Travel tips

Brazil Security Tips
Latin America is quite different from Europe in terms of security, as you know. Just in case: 
"If you want to carry a smartphone, do not put it in a tight pocket where it is visible. Never pull the phone out on the street, no matter how busy it is. If you want to call someone, look something up on Google, or check your email, do it indoors. Go into a restaurant, go into a shop, go into a mall." (click the link for the details).
