The Brazilian culture of friendliness, social interaction, and festivity doesn’t stop with humans! At the Cachorródromo do Ibirapuera (Rua Curitiba 290, São Paulo), you can bring your dog/s to make other canine friends, participate in games and training exercises, improve their tail-wagging social skills, and run and play to their heart’s content, securely watched over by many other canine admirers. In a city where large, safe open spaces are at a premium, it is a welcome respite to let your dogs run free, as the area is completely enclosed. and there is also no charge for entry. Nearby, Ibirapuera park could make up part 2 of a complete day out for your dog!
Along with a delicious food and drinks cardapio, Ludus Luderia offers a unique supplementary menu with an enormous selection of board games! All your favourites (Monopoly, Operation, Ticket to Ride etc) as well as many lesser-known jewels. Also included are games for younger visitors – Dancing Eggs being a particular recommendation (age isn’t important of course, a group of over-30s loved this one!). The games are well preserved by respectful guests, and there isn’t any time limit… D&D veterans and first-time geeks alike can while away a long afternoon here, Rua Treze de Maio 972, Sao Paulo.
