ANYONE WANT TO HAVE A DRINK WITH US on the 7th of JAN?
..exchange some greek-brasilian tips!
I was just wondering, for those that live in Curitiba, how long will 10,000 dollars or around 20,000 to 23,000 reais with the current exchange rate, last me, a single traveler. I would like to live a rather comfortable life...nothing too lavish just a 1 br furnished apartment, monthly fees for jiu jitsu and muay thai at the academia ChuteBoxe, eating out a couple times a week, and going out on weekends? Also, I would like to go to some beach cities while I am there (Ilha do mel, Floripa, and any other nice beach towns). I would probably take a 1 week trip to a beach city every month/month and a half. Also, I would like to teach some english, but don't have a TEFL or any type of certification. Also, are there any big festas on the same scale as carnaval or oktoberfest(blumeneau) near curitiba from january until the time I would leave? Thanks in advance.
my family and i are planning to relocate to curitiba. i am in need of realtors to show me some furnished apartments, or perhaps names of places that would be suitable for a family. location is important, as is safety. also coming with 2 small children. how can i look for a reliable "baba". planning to be there 3dec 05.
Hi all, I am going to be in Curitiba from the 20th December 2005 until the 16th Jan and need to rent a nice apartment.
Also would apreciate any info about those cities. I originally wasn't going to Blumenau, but since I'm traveling at the time for Oktoberfest, I feel it would be a crime NOT to visit. Also any info about lodging or points of interest in and around those places would be apreciated. Thanks.
I will be visiting Curitiba with my sister for a week in the beginning of December. She will be working during the days, so I am looking for things to do around Curitiba...day trips and things in and around Curitiba.
Hi. I've been to Rio 4 times and loved it, but this time I thought I would do something different. Here is how my itinery and my plans look like (so far):
Oct 4: fly in Curitiba around 7:30PM.
Same night: take overnight bus to Iguazu falls.
Oct 5,6: stay in Iguazu.
Oct 6 night: take overnight bus back to Curitiba.
Oct 7 morning: arrive in Curitiba, tour Villa Velha. Overnight in the city.
Oct 8 morning: take the train to Paranagua, then ferry to Ilha Do Mel.
Oct 8-12 on the Island
Oct 12 10:50 AM fly out Curitiba.
Like I mentioned before, I've never been in the region, so I apreciate any comments, suggestions, tips, etc. As you understand my flight days are pretty much set but I haven't booked anything between the flights yet, so nothing is carved in stone. If you think I should spend more time in one place rather than another, or have any other suggestions, please let me know.
I do have a couple of specific questions:
1. What's the weather like on Island Do Mel in October? Can one actually swim in the ocean? I was on Ilha Grande same time last year and really enjoyed the weather: warm and pleasant, not nearly as hot as Rio in January. Is it much colder on Isla Do Mel?
2. What time should I live the island in order to get to the airport by 10AM. Are there any boats that would take me from the island so early? Should I avoid trying that and go to Curitiba the day before (spend night in the city)?
2. What do you call the bus with those fully reclining seats in Brazil and what coould be the cost (ballpark) from Curitiba to Iguazu? Also, do I need to book in advance?
Thanks in advance for any help!
Hello, Jeff here. My wife and I are planning on purchasing an apartment in Curitiba. Can anyone tell me where the emerging areas are? We would like to live in a place that is relatively safe, with younger professionals, artists, or university students. We're not necessarily looking for yuppie or posh places, but more for emerging 'lagalzinho' places. Also, what are the traditional neighborhoods that are good?
I will be passing through Curitiba on my Brasil trip at the end of the year. I am very interested in historic architecture. What does Curitiba have to offer? Like palacios or baroque churches? I have heard of an italian neighborhood, which has interesting architecture and many restaurants.
Unfortunately, when I see pictures of Brazilian cities, it usually only shows the skylines full of skyscrapers and tall buildings, and you know they basically all look the same...
Which other city in the south of Brazil do you strongly recommend visiting?
Hi Folks, Can anyone tell me roughly how long is the bus ride from Curitiba to SPaolo? Is it a frequent service. Obrigado!! Hugo
We are going to be in Curitiba for a week. Besides the basic bus tour and the train ride to the coast, what is there to do in Curitiba? We are interested in hiking and other activities that English speakers would enjoy.
My wife’s father is in Cabo Frio, Brazil and is considering a move south to the Curitiba area. He is a commercial HVAC engineer, experienced in the repair of air conditioners and refrigeration/freezer units. Do you have any recommendations on which neighborhoods he and his wife and 3 children should live in, and is Curitiba good for business and job opportunities? Any recommendations you have in moving to Curitiba would help. Obrigado!

Help. Does anyone know where I can order Christmas flowers for my fiance in Curitba prior to my arrival on Christmas? I would like the name and phone number or email address of a good florist in Curitiba who can deliver before Christmas because I won't be able to purchase them when I arrive on Christmas Day. (They need to communicate in English since I do not speak Porteguese). Thanks...
Hi there, My partner and I will be in Curitiba for three nights later this month, and I was thinking of booking the following hotel: FULL JAZZ SLAVIERO RUA SILVEIRA PEIXOTO, 1297 BATEL Is this location convenient to things to do, places to eat, and so on? Thanks in advance!
Curitiba seems like a beautiful place to live. My husband & I are considering moving our software company Curitiba. Let me apologize if I unintentionally offend anyone. I have come to understand that many Brazilians are proud of the diversity of their society (and rightly so). However, I have seen a few studies and reports that indicate that my daughter and I may be not be accepted. We are an interracial couple. My husband is Italian, Irish and Norwegian. I consider myself African American, however I guess Brazilians might consider me "mixed race" as I have an African, French, Native American, and Irish heritage. I am also concerned that our daughter might also encounter difficulties. I realize that the US is famous for its racism, however we have lived in large urban and progressive areas in the East Coast, Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, so I have not regularly encountered much overt racism that is prevalent in other parts of the US. I am afraid, that I might encounter a different kind of racism than I accustomed to or prepared for. As people who have lived, visited and worked in Curitiba could you perhaps give me your perspective of race issues there. Studies and reports alone, are not always the best way to access a situation. My Concerns: ~Will my daughter receive fair treatment if she attends school there? ~Will people refuse to rent and sell property to us? ~We are planning on hiring up to 20 employees. Would the average worker be comfortable working for and accepting the authority of an African American woman? ~Will restaurants and other businesses refuse me as a customer. Curitiba seems like such a progressive, forward thinking city. Is it possible that some of the things I have read are isolated incidents? If they are true, is it possible that things have improved in recent years. Or, do I need to understand that If I move to Curitaba, I might be exposing my daughter to unneeded pain and jeopardizing the growth of our business. Thanks for sharing your views with me. Tracey
I'm looking for the schedule of bus transportation from Curitiba to Foz do Iguazu, Brazil. If possible, I'd also like an idea of the cost. Can anyone help me?
I'm intersting how far the Curtiba bus station is from the airport ? What is the best way to go from Curitiba to Floripa by bus? I arrive Curtiba at 16.45 and how many long time is way to Floripa? Where can I see the bus time-table from: Curtiba – Floripa Floripa to Curtiba Thanks, Andrey
Hello Folkes I will be taking the trainride from Curitiba to Morretes and then catching the bus to Paranghan (sorry can't spell). Can I do this in one day? and can I catch the bus from Paranaghan to Morretes and the train back to Curitiba from Morretes all in one day? Thank you I look forward to hearing from you. Manny
What nis the best, and fastest, way to go from Curitiba to Foz Iguacu? We will be visiting Curitiba in August, for one week. It has been recommended that we see the falls while we are there. We would be travelling with two small (under 2 years of age) children.
I am spending a few weeks in Curitiba (been before) and I'm so exited to return. I am going this time with a friend and we want to spend a day at a really upscale spa. We want to get facials and massages and pedicures and all that yummy stuff. I can't seem to find anything (in English anyway) on the web about the different "spa's/salons" in the Curitiba area. Any help, recommendations, or websites would be so appreciated! Thank you!
I will be moving to Curitiba sometime around July 2004. I will be looking for an apartment to rent for at least 1 year. I will be doing alot of weekend traveling to various tourist locations around the area. I'm told the public transportaion system is very good. Would leasing a vehicle or using public transportation be the best way to see the sites of Curitiba and surrounding areas? I speak only English. Will I have difficulty comunicating? If I were to try to learn a little of the language, would Portuges or Spanish be the one I should learn? Also, what could I expect to pay for a 1 bedroom 1 bath apartment? Furnished and unfurnished? Thanks, David
are there buses that goe from Foz Do Iguaçu to Curitiba, if yes, where can I get the informations?
Has anyone ever taken the Train Ride to Paranaguá out of Curitiba Brazil? Also could you some recommendations for reasonable but air-con and private bath accommodations. We will be traveling by bus so if there is something near the bus station that is nice that would be helpful. Obrigada Muchos Gracias thanks Mahalo traveling with Aloha the coconut wireless
Where are some good bars and dance places in Curitiba? I absolutely LOVE little, cheap holes in the wall with great Brazilian dance. No techno, please. A major concern is safety, since I go out fairly late and come home fairly drunk. A lot. But, hey, I like it. I'm from the SF bay area and have been in Portugal (mainly Lisboa and Coimbra) for seven months. I used to do a little Capoeira in the US. Ny nickname was beija flor, or hummingbird, because I was always all over the place. That's why I love dance, especially Brazilian. The words "beija flor" mean flower kiss. But I spent so much time in Capoeira getting up close and personal with the gym mats that I decided on my name, meaning "one who kisses the floor." :0)
Is it possible to drive between Curitba and Foz Do Iguassu (maybe by car rental) Has anyone done this before?
Hallo dear Friends & Travellers, I´m going to spend 3 monthes in Curitiba (parana) from February to end of April, 2003. Now I wonder if anybody knows if there are some nice beaches around this ares within 2 houres of drivingtime from Curitiba, maybe with some "surfspots". If non of yours is surfer, maybe anybody saw some surfers somewhere in Parana. And if somebody of you actually did surf down there, I would be interrested in the conditions, behaviour and so on. If so, please tell me. 3 monthes is a long time, with a lot of weekends which I would like to, in addition to visit some other poínts of interrest, spend on some nice beaches enjoying the summer down there.
Does anybody know something about living in Curitiba? My company sends me for 3 monthes there, and I convinced my girfriend to quit her job and come with me ! Now I heared that Curitiba is an "untypical" Brazilian City, where the people are "cold" and even Carnevall is not celebrated !! Could anybody convince myself that it was still a good idea to go there with my girlfriend, or was this a big FOULT !! Please help, Best regards, Yours, Markus
