Nice weather, friendly people, good food
A bit too dull for a city of its size
In a nutshell
the next best thing to São Paulos mega-everything if you want to live in SP state
When two women or a man and women greet each other in Brazil, they will usually kiss each other on the cheek and say "Tudo Bem?" or "Tudo Bom?" ("It is fine with you?"). There is nothing sexual about this practice. People are very sociable and place much importance on family. When I was visiting my friend, often extended family members would drop by unexpectedly, and it was important to greet them!

Campinas is famous in Brasil for his universities. There are some of them, and with good reputation.
There is also many students living in Campinas, so there is an active nightlife every day. This students usally live in Republicas (student houses) where the house paries are really comon. Don't lose one of this parties if you have the chance!!
The most important universities are:
- UNICAMP: Is the biggest university I have never seen, it's public and it's famous for his research proyects.
- PUCC: It's a religious university, and is private. Don't ask me too much abut that, but people says that the best girls of campinas studies there!! ;-]

As you know, skateboarding is my pasion, and I couldn't come to Brazil without my skateboard!!
There are at least two skateparks in Campinas:
* Tent Beach: This wooden indoor skatepark is in shopping Dom Pedro, inside the Tent Beach skateshop. It's too profesional, the modules are to close and are quite big. The wood slides too much. I didn't like it to much.
Prices: Helmet (required) 2 reais.
Admision 5 reais.
* Parque Ecologico: It's a concrete skatepark in the outskirts of Campinas. It isn't so bad. One quarter, handrail, 45 and diferent curbs. Admision is free and helmet is not required. Yeeeeah!!
You can take 3.01 bus to go there.
