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…

Hi all,

I am taking boats up the Amazon from Macapa, Brazil to Coca, Ecuador during July. I obviously want to do some expeditions into the interior, but am running into the fact that most of the tour companies only provide details for the typical 3/4 day trips (which almost always includes river dolphins, meeting of the waters, piranha finishing, sunset/sunrise, caiman watching, and like one or two three hour nature hikes).

These are all generally well reviewed, but I'm very conscious of a…

I know this is an old chestnut but it has been playing on my mind since I paid for my ticket 4 months ago.

I will be spending five weeks in Brazil later this year (November ) as a solo male traveller. I have visited a quite few countries , always as a solo traveller but would still regard myself as a nervous traveller ie I do tend to worry about almost everything.

The places I will be visiting will be Iguazu Falls, Brasilia, Manaus, Belem, Sao Luis, Olinda (recife) , Salvador, Sao Paulo…

Hi all,

Apologies in advance if this question has already been asked.

I fly into Sao Luis in early September and will spending a few days here before moving to Barreirinhas or Atins (not sure which area I want to visit Lençóis Maranhenses from). After visiting Lençóis Maranhenses I want to travel to Jericoacora and spend a week here and then move on to Fortaleza and continue following the Brazilian coast all the way to Rio.

There isn't much information around on how to get from Sao Luis to…

Hello there!

I am trying to get two tickets for the July 16th Flamengo-Botafogo game.
1) how can I do this from the US without a Flamengo or Botafogo membership?
2) without a CPF?
3) for relatively cheap -- is this even possible at this point?

Thanks so much!

Hi guys,

I'll be crossing the Brazilian border in Corumba, coming from Santa Cruz, tomorrow. I have 2 days before having to be in Iguazu.
Keep in mind I will come back to Campo Grande & Bonito afterwards (long story), so I was wondering if there were any recommendations on the way down to Iguazu, any spots where I could spend a day. Corumba itself? Dourado?

Thanks a lot !

We will be traveling to Manaus next week, but will be there only one full day, with sightseeing in the town, no jungle or river tours. Do we need any meds other than Deet and proper clothing?

Hello,

I'm going to fly in Brasil, a domestic flight, and I can bring only 23 kg in total, as they say in the email they sent to me: Maximum 23kg baggage per passenger is permitted. The baggage that exceeds the deductible will be considered excessive and will be charged 0.5% of the normal economy fare (YO6) by path, per kilogram.

Do you know how to calculate how much would be for each kg more?

Thank you very much in advance,
K.

Hello,

I am planning a trip to Bahia. We are going to stay near Porto Seguro. We will rent a car and explore all around, Arraial da Ajuda, Transcoso and Porto Seguro. My question is where should we stay, Porto Seguro or Arraial da Ajuda. We like something nice and beautiful but also want to be close enough to nice restaurants and nightlife. Does Arraial da Ajuda have a city center with ppaces to go at night? I would rather stay in Arraial if it does. Because we have a car we can spend our days…
