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'm going to Rio de Janeiro for one year and I'll be leaving most probably in the end of August. I've been searching for some cheaper flights but I haven't found anything good. Has anyone found any tickets under 700 €? From any European (central) airport - Germany, Spain, England, Italy ...
Thanks for your help!
My boyfriend and I will be in Brazil for two weeks late September, flying into and out of Salvador.
Our plan is to travel overland from Salvador to Rio (mainly along the coast), and then fly back up to Salvador for our flight home.
Does anyone have recommendations for a few of the best places to stop along the way?
Is the coast between the two cities well connected by bus?
Will we need to book, or can we just take the buses from bus stations along the way?
Also any recommendations…
Hi all, any tips on what not to skip between SP and Salvador? We only have 2 weeks (!). Bought the LP of course so I'm familiar with Ilha Grande, Rio, SP, Sao Paulo, PN da Chapada Diamantina. What else is there that is an absolute must? We're going in November. Thanks a lot!
im currently in buenos aires on my way to colonia and montevideo. can someone tell me the cost of a bus ticket from montevideo to florianopolis, florianopolis to sao paulo, and sao paulo to rio.
We're to fly to Iguazu falls, landing @ Foz do Iguaçu in the morning.
On our way to our hotel in Puerto Iguazu/AR we'd like to stop and spend the afternoon visiting the Brazilian side of the park / falls.
1. is there any solution (locker, cloakroom...) to leave our luggage at the entrance of the park while we visit?
2. any hint or tip regarding transfer from the Brazilian entrance of the park to Puerto Iguaçu or at least to the border? Need to get back to Foz do Iguaçu ? I understand…
I'm hoping to catch a bus from Santarem to Cuiaba. I was wondering if anyone has done this before and has advice. Do you know which bus company does the trip and how long it takes? If anyone has done the trip recently, do you know about the quality of the road?
im not an expert when it comes to coffee, can someone recommend a good place to go to buy large amounts (.5- kilo) of coffee to take home in either sao paulo or rio.
Finding an airport hotel...you'll probably consider my question as rather dumb...but it looks like there are very few hotels at Rio ITL airport (GIG), 1 or 2 actually, which all have rooms at prohibitive prices.
We have an early flight (8:31) and would therefore like to stay as close as possible to GIG, avoiding losing time in the trafic.
Any hint or advice? Where the most convenient place to stay at? I'm sure I'm not the only one struggling with that kind of issue
Thanks in advance...
