    • Rascal - HigienópolisAvenida Higienópolis, 646 - Higienopolis, Sao Paulo, Brazil
      Fabio Meirelles recommended Rascal - Higienópolis
      4
      This one is located in Shopping Higienópolis, in the neighborhood of higienópolis, one of the most upscale places in the city. Pretty much the best buffet in the city...but at the same time, it has ... read more
      that upscale restaurant sort of vibe and excellent wine and a la carte menus as well. If you do choose the buffet though, it's all-you-can eat food served by the sous-chefs as soon as they've cooked it...you go to the center of the restaurant where the have an open kitchen, ask for what you want to eat and they either serve you with what they've just made or make it for you right there. I would suggest the Ravioli verde de mussarela de búfala after a visit to their very comprehensive salad bar.

      great place to eat lunch

    • JardinsRua da Consolação, 3154, Sao Paulo, 01416-000, Brazil
      Fabio Meirelles recommended Jardins
      4
      The Jardins neighborhood has it all: the best restaurants in the city, the best stores, the biggest mansions, galeries, cinemas, luxury car stores and even some cool night clubs and bars, even though ... read more
      it's not particularly known for its' night life. There's three sub-districts making up "Jardins" (literally, "Gardens") Jardim Paulista, Jardim América and Jardim Europa, and each has their own kind of spots. In the lower end, Jardim Europa is home to Brazil's most luxurious car stores and at the same time one of its' coolest museums, the image and sound museum, MIS. Along with Jardim America it's where Sao Paulo's whealtiest live: you can find the biggest mansions in both districts. In that sense, they are pretty much the same district, the difference in the name is due to the street names: you may find Sociedade Harmonia de Tênis, an upscale tennis club, located in Rua Canada and therefore part of Jardim America, or the Escola Panamericana de Arte located in Rua Groenlândia, Jardim Europa's only design school. Going up through Avenida Europa you'll get to Jardim Paulista, comprised of streets whose names were chosen from cities in the state of Sāo Paulo ("paulista" is the adjective of being from São Paulo) This part of the neighborhood is where you'll find some of the city's best restaurants (Dom and Fasano) stores (Rua Oscar Freire) cafés (Suplicy and Santo Grāo) cultural spots (conjunto nacional, cinesesc) and some night life (o'malleys pub, squat, bar balcão) just to name a few examples. There's so much to do that any comprehensive guide will never be comprehensive enough, and the only way to fully enjoy jardins is to walk around and find out for yourself. I was born and lived my whole life here and there's still plenty of stuff I haven't done and spots I haven't been in. Enjoy!

      if possible stay somewhere around this neighborhood...if not, you can shop, eat and go out in so many different places

    • RitzRua Jerônimo da Veiga, 141 - Sao Paulo, 04536-000, Brazil
      Fabio Meirelles recommended Ritz
      4
      Very cool restaurant in the middle of Jardins. It's a bit small, so be ready to wait, especially on weekend nights. It has some of the best burgers in the city but it doesn't look at all like a ... read more
      fast-food joint, there's more of a trendy specialty cousine vibe. The waitresses are all models (or could be if they so desired) and the customers are usually young and alternative. It's especially worth a visit during late night hours, since it's not as crowded and, like most restaurants in São Paulo, stays open very late.

      on a weeknight or a sunday night

    • Estádio do MorumbiTaboao da Serra - Sao Paulo, Brazil
      Fabio Meirelles recommended Estádio do Morumbi
      5
      Best soccer (football, futebol) stadium in the city. In the middle of a very nice, residential neighborhood, it's easy to get to and safe to walk around. Home of Brazil's most victorious team, Sao ... read more
      Paulo FC, ( as we call it, "tricolor" because of the teams' three-colored jersey ) it's a landmark spot. Go preferably when there's a match between SPFC and atraditional rival from some other state, in a game known as a "classico". When there's a coonfrontation with one of the other three big teams from the city, there's usually an unsafer environment because of the rivalry, so be sure to go with a local and to stay on the benches - arquibancadas - to get what a soccer match in Brazil really is like.

      Try for the games on sundays at 4pm, and, if possible, go with a local.

      I second the Miraflores recommendation - it's my favorite neighbourhood in Lima. Lots of stuff to see and it feels very safe too.

      Hey Caleb. Well, Lan Peru (which is the one you'd be flying, not Lan Chile) is definitely the premium airline. But to be honest, we're talking about a 1-hour/1 1/2 hour flight here, and I'm not sure how much of a premium service is needed for this kind of flights. I mean, both airlines can get delayed or cancelled flights due to weather conditions, and both their airplanes are piloted by specially trained pilots to be able to fly over the andes area. You won't be getting any meals, most likely just a snack.

      So I guess what I'm saying is it's not really necessary to pay as much for that flight. Although they have smaller planes, StarPeru is pretty decent in local flights. And LanPeru basically doubles the Lima-Cusco flight costs for foreigners just because. I say go for the economic choice. Have a great time!

      This little town near Machu Picchu is a great place to stop after The Inca Trail. Famous for it's thermal springs, the warm water are just the ticket after a long hike.

      La Chupiteria is the place to go in Cusco for a drink. This tiny bar packs a punch with shots the house speciality. The owner is a colourful character who will be sure to regale you with the odd story ... read more

    • Plaza de ArmasPlaza de Armas, Cuzco Peru
      Scott Kennedy recommended Plaza de Armas
      4
      The Plaza de Armas in the centre of Cusco is the hub that this city revolves around. Hemmed in by historic and colonial architecture it's the best place to start your Cusco explorations.

      Lima's nicest neighborhood - hip, artsy and right on the Pacific!

      Check out Miraflores and, if possible, stay there! It's the nicest part of Lima in a cool, Bohemian artsy way. It's also upper class as it's right on the Pacific, but it's not guarded gate stuck up high class - just a chill hood with lots of good restaurants, bars, shops, etc.

    • Daniel Bosse commented on this trip

      Drink lots of Coca Tea, take lots of sun block and make sure to climb Huayna Picchu. Only the first 200 people are granted access each day so get there early. While in Cusco make sure to try the alpaca and cuy (guinea pig)

      MASP is a national cultural treasure well regarded not only for its substantial collection of impressionist art, but also for its 1960’s Brutalist architectural style dominated by glass and concrete. ... read more
      The collections of French, Italian and Spanish works are remarkable, yet the pieces by several Latin American artists are particularly appealing as most allow the observer to gain a deeper understanding of the national culture and its inspirations.
