    72 Hours in São Paulo

    There are no two bones about it: São Paulo, Brazil’s financial heart and the Latin American capital of everything from food to fashion, is an unforgiving concrete monster that will totally overwhelm you. You’ll need to be willing to get your hands dirty if you want to conquer Brazil’s most modern megalopolis. Historically, the city was most visited by business travelers the world over, anxious to share air (and broker deals) with many of the continent’s most successful movers and shakers. These days, that hasn’t changed one bit, but tourists are starting to discover Sampa – so goes it affectionate nickname among locals – and are hitting the ground running, anxious to take in the city’s endless excursions: Gastronomy, museums, nightlife, shopping. You won’t want for anything here.

  • 72 Hours in Buenos Aires

    Just three days to see Buenos Aires, the second-largest city in South America? Que bardo (what a situation), a porteño might say.
