Transport to Bibeirao Preto

We are planning a short trip to RP whilst

we are in Sao Paulo or Campinas .

Is there a bus service from Sao Paulo or From

Campinas to Ribeirao Preto .

How long does it take to get there and are the roads

accepatble .

Also what is the best and safest area to stay

in RP and hotels in that area .

Is the place worth a visit as we have no business

or friends there .

There is a very comfortable executivo bus from Sao Paulo, takes around 3.5 hours. From Campinas, there must be a bus, but I'm not sure, I lived in SP.

It's worth a visit, if not only to eat at the Pinguin restaurant and drink Antartica beer. Why are you going if you don't have friends or business there?

Hello DJ

We love Brazil particularly Sao Paulo .

We visit Sao Paulo about Three four times a year .

We try to discover or visit one additional city

almost every trip to Sao Paulo to enhance our knowledge . It is our intention

to retire one day in Brazil and we are in the process of seeing as many places as time and money permits.

Well, I would consider visiting more towns near the sea, there are plenty. RP is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. It is dreadfully hot in the summer and there isn't a lot of culture. I figure, for retirement, be close to SP proper and the water.

However, for your purposes and experience, it's worth a look.

Thank you for your kind advise . We have visited

Campinas very recently and we are going there

again at the end of July to see friends . Whilst we are there we would like to see another city for 2-3 days which triggered the idea of Ribeiro Preto as it is not very far from Campinas .

We normally use Sao Paulo as a base and travel to and from Sao Paulo to other cities.

We are planning to visit the coastal areas like

Santos ,Ilha Bella and Mareseas later on in the year or early next year .

We appreciate your contribution .

We will be in Sao Paulo at the End of July . I have

heard about Campos Do Jordao briefly . However, any useful information would be useful for future

travel .
