Cheap Flights to Sao Paulo Guarulhos

Sao Paulo often gets overlooked by tourists in favour of the stunning beauty of nearby Rio de Janeiro, but the truth is that Brazil's largest city has plenty to offer adventurous travellers. While Sao Paulo may not win any awards for its beauty, it is a cultural, culinary, and artistic powerhouse in South America. As one of the most diverse cities on the planet, Sao Paulo has an innovative and funky spirit that manages to draw visitors in and keep them for longer than they may expect.

The Sao Paulo Guarulhos Airport is the city's primary international airport and one of the busiest airports in South America. Getting a flight to Sao Paulo Guarulhos Airport is never a problem and with Skyscanner's Whole Month search you can find a cheap flight no matter when you want to leave.

Best Time to Book a Flight to Sao Paulo Guarulhos Airport

While Sao Paulo is in a tropical climate, its inland location makes temperatures here during the winter (which is roughly June to August) surprisingly cool, so bring a sweater. March to June, which is autumn, also tends to be damp and cool. Spring (September to November) offers sunny days and comfortable temperatures. While the summer months (November to March) are sunny and perfect for a visit to the beach, they are extremely hot and humid, which is made worse by Sao Paulo's infamously bad traffic.
