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!

Is it easy (and safe for a solo female traveller) to just fly into Foz de Iguazu and visit the falls? Or should I book a tour and transfers to come pick me up?

Cheers!

I will be stuck in Abadiania (Goias region)for over a week and I wonder whether there are any interesting things to see within a limited radius (up to 300km) from there... any scenic areas, waterfalls, something for the kids (horseback riding or the like)?

The hotel we are going to (Pousada Guanabara Garden) is only 3 miles away from the airport but will not arrange a pick up for us...and I have tried to book a taxi online but got quotes hundreds of USD as I can only specify destination as Rio City Centre.

Any suggestions, you lovely expert travellers? Really don't want to land after a 14 hour flight with two tires children and start finding a taxi - or spend hundreds of USD on it?

Thank you soooo much in advance
