Santos is a popular place to visit while you are exploring Guaruja as many of the city’s main attractions are within easy reach. Two of the most interesting places to see are the fascinating Flag Square and the fantastic Gonzaga Beach. Also worth checking out are Santos Beach and Boqueirao Beach.
To better understand Guaruja, head to one of its museums and theaters. Book in for a live performance at Coliseu Theater and the Santos Municipal Theater.
If the sun is shining get into the great outdoors and appreciate the nearby green spaces. Get in touch with nature at one of the area’s beaches, for example Aparecida Beach and the Jose Menino Beach. If you're in need of a green urban park be sure to check out Orchid Garden.
Go to the Praiamar Shopping Mall for a satisfying dose of retail therapy.
See local sporting heroes, the Santos FC, battle their opponents at the iconic Vila Belmiro Stadium. On game days follow the sea of yellow, black and white, to the stadium, then after the full-time hooter blows, join fans at a nearby pub, bar or cafe for a few post-game beers.
Finding somewhere handy to rest your head within Santos is easy. For a good night’s sleep check out the Mercure Santos Hotel, the ibis Santos, and the popular Cosmopolitan Praia Flat.
