Located in the State of Sao Paulo, Sorocaba has recently undergone various urbanisation projects and is now amongst Brazil's most populous cities. Tourists who visit can expect to uncover a true taste of authentic Brazil, with many areas still considered to be off-the-beaten-track.
The Sorocaba River stretches over 2km and runs through the city forming an important part of Sorocaba's cityscape. Hire a car in Sorocaba and you can explore the central and eastern districts, with historic buildings dating back to the Spanish occupation plus shops, restaurants, parks and monuments. You'll also be able to visit Sorocaba Zoo - one of the largest in Latin America and home to many endangered species.
For a snapshot of Sorocaba's stunning scenery, tourists should head to Sao Paulo's Botanical Gardens. At just over an hours drive from central Sorocaba, it's well worth a visit to discover the natural beauty of this region.
Sao Paulo's coastal cities are well within reach from Sorocaba. If you rent a car from Sococabo you can get to the port town of Santos in around two hours. Known as Latin America's largest seaport; the town's maritime ties gives Santos a unique small town charm. Its seven mile long stretch of beach means there is lots to discover, with diving destinations and awe-inspiring sunset views in abundance.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
