Hello! Does anyone have experience living in Indaiatuba? I may be offered work there, but am wondering how life might feel for a young single expat (used to living in some of the largest metropolises) Is it a common thing for people to commute to and from Sao Paulo? Are there enough fun places at easy-to-drive distance to visit at least on weekends? Thank you for your advice!

Hi Stefka,

I hope the Expat Arrivals forum will help you connect with others who have lived and worked in Indaiatuba. 

You'll be happy to know that Indaituba is only a 1 and half hour drive from Sao Paulo, so you shouldn't feel too removed for the city life. Also there is a direct bus from Indaiatube to Sao Paulo.

Take a look at our Brazil Country Guide. While it doesn't focus specifically on Indaituba it does contain lots of useful information for expats moving to Brazil. It covers topics such as Work Permits for Brazil, Cost of Living in Brazil and Healthcare in Brazil. It should certainly help you with the move.

Best of luck,

Shantalie

Hi Stefka, I have been living in Indaiatuba for a couple of years now, you are about an hour's drive from Sao Paulo (outside of rush hour) the largest city in South America (22 million population). Indaiatuba is the number one place to live in Brazil according to the IFDM 2010-2012* data survey looking at the various government statistics available. Close to Viracopos-Campinas International airport, which is already the biggest cargo airport in latin america. by 2014 it will have a second runway and new terminal building I would not suggest commuting to and from Sao Paulo on a daily basis, if and when the high speed train from Campinas to Rio is running it could be a consideration. Campinas International Airport is only 12km from Indaiatuba and will be one of the bullet train's stops. You can fly to Rio at the weekend from Viracopos Airport, or just take the bus into Sao Paulo if you prefer. Regards Steven
