Experience the top things to do in Campinas

Just outside Radisson RED Campinas is the city’s beating heart—the vibrant Cambuí neighborhood. Extending from Bento Quirino State Technical School to the Center of Coexistence, Cambuí isn’t just near the action, it’s part of the action. You’ll find the city center’s best things to do without hailing a cab, but it’s also an easy drive to family-friendly must-visits like Hopi Hari, Brazil’s second-largest theme park.

Find out what makes Campinas tick, from the markets and shops to the restaurants, bars, clubs, and theaters on the streets that surround our Radisson RED. Want to get lost in the best way possible? Finish up an on-site meeting and then explore downtown and the Bosque neighborhood to the south. Taquaral is located to the north, Guanabara to the northwest, and Nova Campinas, Jardim Planalto, and Chácara da Barra to the east. If you’re headed even farther out, the Campinas bus station is just 10 minutes away.
