Almost halfway between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, the city is in an area known as Costa Verde and it's named after the abundant Atlantic Forest on the site, and has been named ninth on the list of must-see regions of the planet! Can you imagine how amazing the landscapes during the trip must be? Costa Verde and Reunidas Paulista bus companies are the main ones for this destination. And they have been in the market for over 40 years serving travelers from Brazil very well. :)
