Parque Zilda Natel On the flipside

If you’re in the mood for some four-wheeled madness, look no further. This 2,300sqm skate park features a number of tracks, pipes and bowls to suit everyone from newbies to board-toting pros.

Though funded by City Hall and the Brazilian Confederation of Skating, the tracks themselves were designed and tested by semi-professional skaters while local graffiti artists were given the task of brightening up the decor. Complete with spaces to practices flips and ollies and a somewhat boot-camp-like warm up area, you could easily find yourself losing a whole day here.

Luisa Sato Heaven is shiatsu

Shiatsu, traditional Japanese physical therapy, involves finger (shi) pressure (atsu) massage. The treatments aim to alleviate the symptoms of ill health and injury.

After training with the shiatsu master Zenzo Yamamoto, Luiza Sato opened her first clinic in Moema in 1980: now the chain boasts 25 locations.

The goal at Luiza Sato is to relax—a process instigated by the minimal Japanese-style decor and harmonious ambience. After taking off their shoes and stepping onto the tatami mats, guests are offered a steaming cup of green tea. Then comes the therapy… And when it’s over, when every pressure point has been probed and the good energy is flowing uninhibitedly again, a farewell cup of missoshiro soup sends the starry-eyed customers on their way.

Guarapiranga Golf and Country Club Hole in one featured

On greens nestled next to the lush tropical vegetation of the Guarapiranga Reservoir, it’s easy to understand why golf is becoming increasingly popular in Brazil—and why this is the best place in the country to play it.

The Guarapiranga Golf and Country Club, situated at a mere 30 minutes by car from central São Paulo, features a state-of-the-art 18-hole course (including an awe-inspiring back nine almost entirely surrounded by water), equipment rentals and caddy services, a driving range, a putting green and a restaurant that serves a fine range of appropriately stiff post-game cocktails. Could a golf lover ask for anything more?
