If you are a travel in a wheelchair, which city in Brazil do you recommend more, Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro?
Mostly in terms of transportation, but any other aspect that might be important too!

I know a lot about Rio, I’ve never been there, but my feeling is that São Paulo is a little more prepared for wheelchair users considering its development.
Though it’s important to know that most cities in Brazil have lots of obstacles on sidewalks, that is under the responsibility of the property owner, that may prioritize the aesthetics rather than its accessibility (sometimes steps, slopes, grass or even a tree in the middle of the sidewalk).
In this video (English), Daniel explains how is to live in São Paulo as a wheelchair user. We can have an idea about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MM2AvL0MKlY
Let me know if I can help with any further information! 🙂
