I am 29 and will be travelling alone from 13 April till 30april.
I planned to fly into São Paulo and stay for 3 nights, fly into rio for 3 nights, fly into Cusco and Machu Picchu for 4 nights, fly into bueno Aries and Iguzzua falls for 4 nights before heading back to São Paulo and back to Singapore.
Any one can advise me if this will be any problems with my planning ?
Alternatively I can do it the other way round São Paulo, bueno Aries, cusco, rio and back to São Paulo. I am not sure how different will the trip be if I choose to do this route.
I will stay in hostel and join local tours for all activities.
Thank you so much
Hello my friends, I want to thank all of you for assisting me in finalizing my itinerary on my upcoming trip. I was wondering what to do for the weekend after a week of meetings. One member suggested traveling to Brotas for the weekend. I just found out that I will be in Aluminio on Friday. About 236 km away. Any suggestions on how to get from Aluminio to Brotas? Ciao'

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.

Hello, how can I travel from Ilhabela to Dianantina without flying please?
If I can take the Airport Express bus, would I be able to tell the driver the hotel "Porto Bay" and would they let you off at the hotel or is it a central stop and need to take a taxi from there?
I'm from Miami, Fl and am considering a job assignment that will last 3 weeks to 2 months in the São Paulo metropolitan area and will include a few drives to places in the state such as Bauru and Franca as well as a drive to Rio de Janeiro. This will be from November 2013 to December 2013. All of the driving will be done in a rental car and it must be from 35-40 hours a week driving and capturing video/digital images of different highway junctions throughout the city and metropolitan area. I'm just curious about how safe this job seems for someone who doesn't know the area especially since there is so much traffic. I am fluent in Portuguese and I'm Cuban so I definitely blend in with the Brazilian crowd and don't stick out as a "gringo." Also can anybody give me an idea of what to expect traffic-wise as I have heard it doesn't get much worse. I am asking these questions after reading through several forums and just wanted to see if I can get some responses specific to my situation as I think it is pretty unique (3 weeks-2 months on the road for 40 hours a week) and I want to know what you guys think the chances of something bad will happen including getting into an accident as I'm expecting some aggressive drivers (even worse than Miami!)
Thanks for your time!
sou de Miami e estou considerando um trabalho que vai durar desde 3 semanas até dois meses em São Paulo e a sua área metropolitana e que incluiria viagens de carro até Bauru, Franca e Rio de Janeiro. Vai ser Novembro até Dezembro desse ano. Todas as viagens vão ser de carro alugado e seriam 35-40 horas cada semana fazendo as tarefas em diversas partes da cidade. O serviço seria tomar imagens e vídeos das junções e estradas para uma empresa de GPS. Sou curioso sobre o que vocês acham sobre a segurança para uma pessoa que não conhece a área indo conduzir num lugar com tanto trânsito. Eu sei que todas as cidades maiores tem problema de crime em certos lugares e por isso gostaria de saber se seria perigoso estar na estrada por 40 horas por semana utilisando uma câmera digital (duas pessoas uma conduzindo a outra tomando as imagens). Posso dizer que não tenho cara de gringo por ser cubana (heh heh heh) e falo português com poco sotaque de pessoa que fala espanhol e sei não atirar atenção.
Só para resumir gostaria das suas opiniões sobre:
-segurança com acidentes de trânsito (nunca tenho conduzindo no Brasil ou Ámerica do sul) e em ser asaltada se me encontro num engarrafamento.
-horário em qual a cidade tranca e não pode se ir de carro
-$70 US por dia de estipêndio para cobrir hôtel/hostel e comido chega?
Para mim este trabalho seria um sonhooooooo e sou queria tirar essas dúvidas

How much time should we allow to get from our hotel (the Hyatt Grand in the Marginal Pinheiros Business district) to the GRU airport? Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
I have a GOL flight into São Paulo GRU and then I have three hours to get on a TAM flight to Santiago. Is this going to be enough time or is it cutting it too fine and not allowing enough time? My only other option is to arrive and wait at the airport for 9 hours.
If I am in transit between 2 flights for about 9 hours. Is it possible to go through passport control to see a bit of Sao Paulo without having bags etc with me?
