For the benefit of everyone dropping by the Brazil branch for the first time, please read this FAQ first. And I hope there can be some sort of way to moderate the thread to keep it updated and clean. I know there are some AWESOME regular contributors here who enjoy giving advice; I feel this thread can really help to condense the information available.
I'll go first, with some general thoughts from the South America FAQ. Many thank to Apollo for starting that thread and for a great idea…
I will be staying six days in Belém and was thinking what to do an where.
My initial idea was to spend one night in Belem (since I land late in the evening), then move the day after to Marajó, spend there two nights, move to Algodoal to spend one night there, get back to Belem and spend the last two nights in the city.
Now, this is a very early plan, which does not take into account feasibility and other things, such as what is worth spending more time in, etc. Also, I did not…
Hi all. Anyone want to share a ride from Olinda to Pipa Monday or Tuesday? Bus is complex and long - with four people (we are 2) a car is just as cheap. Message me on +447727147770.
I will be travelling to Brazil in the next few days. My plane will be arriving in Sao Paolo and from there I am planning to take the overnight bus at Rodovaria Tiete for Belo Horizonte. My questions are as follows:
- Is it necessary for me to book bus tickets online? I am apprehensive to do this because there might be changes in my flight schedule causing me to miss my bus. My initial plan is to just buy the overnight bus ticket at the Rodovaria Tiete on the day of my arrival. Is this…
I'm a young woman, in her twenties, and going to Brazil for the first time WITH a small budget. I've been in Argentina and Uruguay a couple of times, but now wanting to get to know brazilian culture and the beaches. I'm planning to start my journey from Salvador and end it in Florianopolis. I've planned to go to a few places such as Morro de Sáo Paulo, Itacaré, Rio de Janeiro, Ilha Grande, Paraty and then Florianopolis. I have only about a month and a week to visit all these places and…
We, two girls in their twenties, one Brazilian and one (me) Dutch, will be in Cacoal at the 20th of December. From that moment onwards we have three weeks of travelling and we definitely want to see Machu Picchu. We want to go hiking there and build a nice holiday around it.
Now we want to know what are your suggestions and experiences to get from Cacoal to Cuzco.
We read a lot and we have seen that there are buses from Cacoal --> Rio Branco --> Puerto Maldonado --> Cuzco, but is this…
I would like to see the wildlife in Brazil, especially jaguar. My research suggests Porto Jofre is going to give me a good chance of a sighting of the latter, and Alta floresta has good birdwatching possibilities. Unfortunately, there is no cheap backpacker- style way to do it. The cheapest options for Porto Jofre are with local companies offering packages. The three companies recommended by the Rough Guide are :
Does anyone have recent personal…

So i am in Brazil right now (Salvador), and my mext destination is Cusco (Peru).
The (non) direct flight over there is rediculously expensive, so i read about a way to get there from Rio Branco (Acre), Close to the peruvian border.
I read some threads on the internet of travellers who have done that, but these posts were pretty a long time ago...
That's why i'm asking the help of someone who done that lately to help me with more…
We have a hotel booking in Copa and would anybody have an idea how much a taxi would cost for the trip?We are disembarking Crown Princess in Rio and just wondering how far from the city is the port. Is it by meter or do you have to negotiate? Thanks in advance.
