Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.
We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.
The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.
For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.
To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.
Adult Admission Price & Policy
Go to https://www.gympass.com and select the YMCA at Republica to purchase a ticket. There, create an account, put in a credit card number, and buy the pass, which is then emailed to you. With pass in hand, go to the YMCA with $R60 for a basic medical exam, after which you will get a pass that allows you to swim.
It's a lot of hoops to jump through, but once you know what to do it's pretty quick and can be done in a short period of time. Barring jumping through the bureaucratic hoops for a SESC membership, this is the best option to swim if you're in Sao Paulo for less than a month. There are great pools in SP, they just don't cater to visitors or guests like most of the rest of the world.
