InterNations — A Community for American Expats in São Paulo

Hello to all Americans in São Paulo! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in São Paulo? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in São Paulo which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Brazil’s most populous city has much to offer. The financial and economic center is a culturally diverse city known for its at times severe traffic congestion and changeable weather, but also for the many museums, striking architecture, culinary delights, and much more! With the complex bus network, an expanding metro system, and commuter rail services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in neighborhoods such as Morumbi or Pinheiros, which are not always close, though, and can be a bit of a commute away from São Paulo’s center.

Although São Paulo has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in São Paulo, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
