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 everyone,
We will be in Brazil in march and want to visit coffee plantations..can you recommend any area where to go (preferably one day trip from some other city)? We dont want to do it with travel agency..I know it wont be the coffee harvest time, so do you think whether is there more to see than just coffee trees? Any experience?

Hello,

Due changes of plans we have 5blanco days left after visiting Salvador.
We have already visit chapada diamantima, it was great! And everybody keeps talking about Moro do São Paulo, but we are wondering if there are other interesting places to go to for 5days instead of Moro do São Paulo. ( after these 5days we have to be back in Salvador for a flight)
Any one some nice ideas? All ideas are welcome!!

Many thanksss!
Nanja

Hello everyone, My husband and I are going to be in Cuiaba in September 2016. For most of the trip we will be at Araras Lodge but are planning on spending a couple days in Cuiaba at the end of our trip.

Can anyone recommend hotels? Preferably something located within walking distance of some sights. Also if anyone has recommendations for restaurants, shops, museums etc I'd love to have them.
Thank you all in advance for any info.

Kim B

This posted isn't about Brazil specifically but I couldn't find another forum more appropriate.
I'm flying from Australia to Brazil & have already booked & paid for my tickets. I'm heading over the Olympics with my family and I assumed incorrectly that the prices for flights would skyrocket as time went on. I pretty much booked as soon as the tickets became available and now, the prices have come down considerably (there's a sale with LAN at the moment).
I paid about Aud$9500 with Flight Centre…

Hi all,
Upon recommendation I used sky scanner to see if it would be reasonable to buy tickets before I fly to Sao Paolo from the US.

Currently for the month of May 2016, I have SP to Manaus $100 one way May 31. SP to BsAs round trip $290 May 16-20 and SP to Rio round trip $73 May22 to 24th.

Are these considered reasonably prices or do you LP Brasil experts feel I could get even cheaper buying online once I get to SP which would be around May 13th given that my first leg is on May 16th to…

Hello all!

I will be in São Paulo mid-Feb to mid-March for a business trip. My office location would be Edificio Villa Lobos-Jardim. Can anyone suggest a good area to stay in São Paulo?

  1. Is a safe area
  2. Has a lot of restaurants/hotels/shops nearby
  3. Is not very far from my office location/is relatively easy to access by Public transport

My company is quite liberal with hotel rents and I see that hotels are comparatively very cheap in São Paulo

I was hoping someone might be able to offer some guidance. I'm an American citizen who will be travelling to Brazil on June 17; I submitted an application for a Brazilian visa to GenVisa, a visa service. Yesterday, GenVisa emailed me a link to the Consulate General of Brazil in Atlanta and on the embassy's webpage, it says that "Citizens of the United States, Australia, Canada, and Japan who are planning on traveling to Brazil to attend the Summer Olympic Games 2016 will have visa waiver for the…
