      I will be in Fortaleza with a friend on the 25-26 of july and i wanted to take tickets for the Fortal 2015. I struggle to find any info on it away from the the official website in portuguese.

      Any info would be welcome.

      If anyone will attend happy to get in touch to go as a group as well

      6 weeks in Brasilia

      Brazil May 13, 2015 at 2:33 PM

      Hello, i'm a student and planning to participate in a volunteer program for 6 weeks this summer. Among my options for destinations is Brasilia(also Serbia,Egypt,Russia and Tunisia), which seems to be more appealing to me since i live in Greece and i think it will be once in a lifetime experience to go that far and also sounds quite exotic. Is it worth? is the weather good in July? Google search for images shows mostly buildings and lacks people and life is it as it seems?

      Hi all,

      three of us (students in the twenties) are planning to travel through Brazil for four weeks in September. We have never been to South America before, yet are fairly experienced traveler. I've read the northeast should be a good time to travel for September.

      What do you think? Any recommendations for a route?

      I'd prefer a mix of coast and inland, though I have no idea if that is possible to realize ;).

      Thanks a lot guys!!

      Questions about Airbnb

      Brasil May 2, 2015 at 10:29 AM

      I wish to start using the services of Airbnb and I have read enough on the subject. However I have some uncertainty and "insecurity", since it always deals with a physical and not a legal entity. I know of cases of cancellations at the last minute and other disorders, which ultimately undermine the credibility of the service.

      Does anyone have a long experience in using this website?

      Already, thank you.

      Hi there,

      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 colonial cities open on Mondays

      I see that the tourist attractions in MG's colonial cities are frequently closed on Mondays. Is that the case with all of these (my tentative itinerary)
      Diamantina, Ouro Preto, Tiradentes, Sao Joao del Rei

      If they're closed on Monday, are they also closed on Sunday?

      Perhaps I'd do better to stay in Belo Horizante on Monday?

      suggestions from the Coast to Minas Gerais

      Estado de Minas Gerais Jan 8, 2010 at 2:50 AM

      Greetings from snowy Paris

      I'm planning a trip to Rio and MG in February and I would be delighted to have suggestions from fellow travellers. My questions relate to the first week of my stay during which we'll have a rented car to travel around:

      -where to spend our first night in Brazil along the Coast? Saquaremos, Buzios, Cabo Frio? It'll be a Saturday, so finding a place may not be easy...
      -where to be based to visit MG: 2 days in Ouro Preto, 2 days in Tiradentes ?
      -is it easy to safely park one's car in MG small towns? I guess MG ismuch safer than Rio with a car, am I wrong?
      -any close other place to visit in MG apart from the colonial towns and BH?
      -suggestions about Paraty?

      All suggestions about quaint places, good food or nice pousadas in MG and along the coast are welcome!

      I am going to be staying in Santos Dumont for a few weeks and really want to visit Ouro Preto, the Itacolomi Park, Sao Thome das Lettres and Sao Joao del Rei

      It looks like it might be easiest to drive to these places than go by bus. So I was hoping for some advice on

      1) How easy is it to drive around and how long might it take to get to these places ? (I am used to driving in the UK and the USA)

      2) Where is the best place to get a car ? The airports at Belo H and R de J seem to be the only places in the area with car hire

      3) Should I just see if I can find a guided tour that goes through the area ?

      I have never been to Brazil before and as a geologist am really excitied about seeing Minas Gerais so I would appreciate any help you can give me
