I'm looking for flights from Sao Paulo to Tarija, Bolivia.
From what I've researched, I've come to the conclusion that there aren't any direct flights..
Has anyone traveled this route before? Any information or advice on the best way to make this trip (which airlines to use etc.) would be much appreciated. Thanks!
I am leaving Buzios tommorrow morning. Do not have an clear idea on how to get to this apartment in the area of Rio or Copacabana: The owner or manager wrote the following information: Se você chegar pelos Aeroportos Santos Dumont ou Galeão, pode pegar o ônibus "FRESCÃO" que o deixará a 50 metros do apto e da sede da Agência, onde retirará as chaves.
Se chegar pela Rodoviária, o "frescão" também passa lá.
Depois, peça ao motorista para descer na Avenida Princesa Izabel, esquina com Nossa Senhora de Copacabana. Siga pela Nossa Senhora de Copacabana e a próxima avenida é a Prado Junior. Entre à esquerda e logo chegará no número 48 = Agência Heidelberg.
I am in Buzios right now. I am planning to take a taxi that will take to bus station, Auto Viacao 1001 from here to the airport at Rio de Janeiro. According to the directions given to me by the owner do I take the Frescao to my final destination? Will the Frescao take my two pieces of luggage? Any comments will be greatly appreciated. Thank You
I have 1 month to drive around Brazil. I was thinking to buy a car and then to sell it at the end.
Is it possible and does people practice it?
I am 35 years old and will be traveling to Rio on the 17th of may.
I recently picked up sailing, did a competent crew course and essential navigation.
I would like find a small fun boat I can join for a sailing trip in/around Rio/ilha grande.
Not to fancy, but good.
We just found out that we will be in/around Rio during the start of Carnival 2014! We are just working on an itinerary for two weeks in Brazil, however things have changed since out recent discovery. Here's what we were thinking of doing:
1/30 - Buenos Aires-Iguazu Falls
1/31 - Iguazu - Salvador
2/4 - Salvador - Ouro Preto(via Belo Horizonte)
2/14 Buzios to GIG(late flight home)
I think getting accommodations on Rio on the dates suggested will be a nightmare! Should we go to Rio at the start of Carnival or perhaps the end of our trip 2/12-14?? Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
I will be travelling to Rio on the 17th of may, staying for 10 days.
I am a single traveller, 36 years old and would like to meet fellow travellers or locals.
Which neighbourhood is the best one to stay in, to look for a B & B, small hotel?
How do you get to Ilha Grande, I've googled it and i can't find any references to how you get to the island?!?! Any recommendations on how long to stay and where to go on there.
People say to book if in season and not if out of season as you can get fantastic deals. I'm going in September, is that in season or out??
From research I see that people recommend Lopez Mendez beach, Abraoo Cove, Dois Rios, Dos Merlos, Saco de cue, blue lagoon, and Green Lagoon. Obviously theres a ton of places here, how plausible is it to all of them? and how do you get around the island, it looks massive, can you walk to all these places??
Cheers again for all the help in advance!
Hi, I was wondering what the best way to visit, Suger Mountain, Corcovado Mountain and Christ Redeemer Statue is? Do you have to do a tour? Looking for the best but cheapest way.. Any advice on things to do in Rio in general would also be fantastic!!
Canadian citizen living in England travelling by air from London to Peru via Sao Paulo. Airline from London to Lima is TAM.
Is a visa required to change planes?
Don't tell me 'it depends' on whether going landside or whatever - I would like to hear from Canadians who have changed planes in Sao Paulo, or who have travelled with someone with a Canadian passport. Thank you.
I´m going to visit Rio in three days. I would like to ask two last questions :
1. At the International airport, I need to change a little money for the bus, what`s the best change ATM or a change office ?
If I draw out money in ATM airport, is the same comission that in Rio city ATM or is bigger ?
2. In the weekend, I would like to visit Pao de Azucar or Corcovado but I think there`ll a lot of people. Which one is less crowded ?
Thank you for your help. Kind regards
I will be leaving to Rio in a couple of days. I will be spending a couple of days in Buzios and seven nights in Rio. Should I take US cash with me? or should I use the local banks to withdraw money using my Bank's ATM? I need to pay for the rent of the places where I am staying at and also need to have cash for the bus transfer, dinning, etc. Any suggestions please help. Thank You
I am looking for a nice place to stay for a few nights in Ipanema/Lapa/Leblon.
I am 35, solo traveller. No chain-hotels, nothing very fancy, but comfortable, personal and nice.
Bought two tickets to fly to Brazil from Flight Centre in London.
Don't usually buy from travel agents as you pay commission on sales, preferring to buy online, but we did on this occasion due to various connecting flights.
On transit we were stopped from boarding our flight to Brazil. My husband is British but me being Australian needed a visa. Dream holiday costing £2500, cancelled!
Contacted our travel agent, only to be asked 'what passport do you have?' Now I appreciate it is our responsibility to ensure we have appropriate documentation for travel, but is it too much to expect that an agent gives you basic information regarding your flight before you buy such a costly holiday? Isn't that what you are paying commission for?
The best bit....after raising our concerns with Flight Centre customer services, we received a letter negating any responsibility on their part (no surprises there) and then going on to say: sorry your trip to Mexico hadn't worked out???
Flight Centre travel agents, since when is Brazil part of Mexico. didn't you even bother reading our email?
I don't understand why anyone should buy tickets through a travel agent, why not just buy them online and do your own research??
