Health & safety
Crime is a serious issue in São Paulo. Be especially careful in the center at night and on weekends (when fewer people are about). Watch out for pickpockets on buses and at Praça da Sé. For drivers, be aware that car-jackings and red-light robberies are not uncommon; in fact it’s legal to just slow down at red lights late at night. If there’s no traffic, continue without stopping.
Einstein Hospital (3747-1233; Av Albert Einstein 627, Morumbi) One of the best hospitals in Latin America. It’s in the southwestern corner of the city (catch bus 7241 to Jardim Colombo from Rua Xavier de Toledo).
