I'm travelling to Belo Horizonte for the World Cup in June and looking for an apartment to rent for 5 or 6 nights. Could anyone else give me any pointers and maybe some cross sections of roads to enable me to narrow down my search in the Savassi & Functionarios areas. I believe these are safer areas and also they are full of bars, restaurants, night clubs, etc.
Any advice appreciated.
I'm travelling to Sao Paulo in June 2014, staying three nights. I have heard that the Jardins Area and Paulista Avenue areas are very good. Could anyone else give me any pointers and maybe some cross sections of roads to enable me to narrow down my search. Also looking for an apartment to rent in these kind of areas for three nights.
I appreciate any advice.
My question is: Is it possible too get a bus ticket from Foz do Iguacu (Brazil) to Puerto Iguazú (Argentina) online, forwards my traveling? So I can take this bus ticket as a proof of leaving Brazil at the duane when I enter Brazil? If yes, do you recommend a website? If not, is there an other option for buying a bus ticket from Brazil into Argentina online?
What is the most efficient way to travel to and from Recife? We will be staying in Natal and want to see at least one game in Recife during next summers World Cup. Looks like there are buses running but it doesnt appear possible to book a seat online. Is a private limo/taxi/driver service a reasonable thing to do? How much can we expect to pay?
I need a transfer from Campos do Jordao to Paraty on Dec.29th. Does anyone know about the means of transportation available? I couldn't find any bus schedule on the internet...
My wife and I will be visiting Rio for 3 days in March for Carnival. Accommodations are not a problem because we will be on a cruise ship. I have been checking the websites of ticket sellers and must admit I was surprised at the cost of some of the tickets. We've decided to go to Carnival on the evening of Monday March 3rd. I would really appreciate any suggestions on which section might be best, the best way to get there from the port, what time should we figure on getting there, and what to do after the show. Just a little background: we are seniors on a budget, we are well travelled and adventurous and enjoy mixing with locals wherever we go. Having said that it would be unlikely that we'd be staying up much after 2.00am. Any suggestions and recommendations anyone can give us would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance !!

how to get from Natal to Ilha de fernando de noronha by boat
is the 'Prive' restaurant still in existent?
if so who is the owner and contact number?
In which area of the city would you suggest me to stay? I've never been in Salvador, I would like to stay in a place like Copacabana, I mean: quite safe to walk anytime, always people around, both tourists and locals, with restaurant and bars. I'll be there for business and when I came back from job in the evening I'd like to have dinners and maybe some drinks at walking distance from the hotel.
A plus would be staying not far from the north coast.
I will be in Florianopolis in a couple of days with my wife. We might spend here up to a week.
We look for a quiet and nice beach. No concrete buildings, not many people. If possible with some nature surrounding us. No need for nightlife (just maybe some nice places to eat, have a drink and meet nice people.)
Accomodation, which preferably is simple and relaxed like bamboo huts and hammocks. (well, we are used to travel in southeast asia ;-)
We don't have a car to get there.
Thanks for your tips, hope there is a little paradise like this in Florianopolis.
Kind regards, Bruno
Hi there! Planning a trip to Rio de Janeiro (and possibly Paraty just down the coast) for February or March. We reviewed the recommended immunizations for Brazil, and the CDC recommends Typoid and Hepatitis A vaccines. Does anyone know what the risk is of these diseases if we either 1) stay in Rio the whole trip, or 2) stay in Rio most of the trip, then head to Paraty on the coast for a couple of days? My boyfriend has a rare auto-immune disorder that makes vaccines risky (can cause paralysis, which one did when he was a child). Anyone have any thoughts? I am hoping the risk for these diseases is in the Amazon or very rural areas, and we can avoid it by washing our hands and now eating street food or uncoked foods.
do i need to speak Portugese to get around town?
How much money should I bring (or need) for 5 days?

Any suggestions for an activity to do with a 2 year old?

im travelling alone and im planning on spending a week between buzios, arraial do cabo and ilha grande, are there ferries from arraial do cabo to ilha grande?
I'm going to Rio next week as part of a group of 4. I am struggling to convince the others about the merits of going to a favela, despite picking what seems to be one of the safest in Santa Marta and all the wonderful reviews and articles it has prompted (that they are safe, interesting and morally acceptable). A backup option could be the cable car over the Alemao favela which means you don't have to go through the streets of a favela and get a great view, but are in a confined space with locals and no guide (plus your fee does not help the community I think).
Our travel agent has found a trusted SM tour for us but I'd like some first hand experience of these two options if anyone has been, particularly with regards to safety, enjoyment and the ability to take photos (I have a DSLR). Did you get to see the painted favela on the SM tour? Is Bonusecco a safe enough place to go to if we take a taxi/train directly to and from the station?
Hi, I'm getting into Salvador the morning of 12/31. Can anyone suggest the best way to get a taxi? I need to get to Jardim Apipema. Any idea of what the fare should be, more of less. Also, are there places to change money at the airport? I will be in Salvador all of January and looking to meet some people there! Thanks! Cindy
We will be travelling back to the UK in 4 weeks time with BA through Terminal 1 Galeao airport and are there for about 5 hours. With all the building work at the airport are there any airport lounges still open airside in Terminal 1 that we can payt to get in?
Hi! What's the cheapest way from the Philippines to Brazil?
I am completing a project for a business course where I find a vacation home in Brazil and try to sell it to a prospective buyer. In order to sell the home I have found, I need to be able to give the buyer details on the attractions in the area, including entertainment, dining and shopping. Most resources I have found are in Portuguese, so if you know anything about the area, I'd appreciate the help.
