      Taxi or airport bus?

      Sao Paulo Mar 24, 2014 at 6:20 AM

      We are a family of 5 (parents with 3 teenagers). We need to get from GRU to Congonhas. Will it be more convenient to take airport taxi or airport bus? In most places we have gone to, the individual cost for the bus is sometimes just the same as for a taxi and the taxi seems to be quicker. Thanks.

    • Where NOT to stay in Manaus?

      Manaus Mar 4, 2014 at 1:54 PM


      I'm looking at hiring an apartment during the world cup in Manaus with a few mates. We have narrowed it down to two places and just wanted to see which area would be better (i.e. not a slum and with good access to bars, etc).

      One is in Cachoeirinha (to the east of CBD), and the other is near Arena Amadeu Teixeira (to northwest of CBD and just to the west of the FIFA stadium). Which of these areas would be better to stay at?

      We want a nice neighbourhood where there are good pubs/bars, close to public transport.

      We don't want to get an apartment that is in the middle of nowhere or in a slum.

      Belém to Peru

      Manaus Feb 3, 2014 at 6:29 PM

      To the experts of Manaus!...

      I'm looking for a little advice on amazonian travel. My girlfriend and I are looking to make our way in from Belém to Manaus, then on again to Peru a few days later.

      Instead of being boring old souls we are interested in something of an amazonian adventure along the river.

      So how about it? Is boat travel from Belém a completely idiotic thing to consider? What are the logistics in terms of time, cost, comfort? We dont mind roughing somewhat, and time (as opposed to money) is something we have plenty of, which is why we think it may be both more fun and moneysaving than flying directly.

      Any advice or any links to companies who provide any such boat services, would be greatly appreciated.

      After Manaus we would be looking to move on to Leticia and Iquitos.

      All the best

      15 hour stop over in Sao Paulo. Is it worth it and is transport available at early AM hours?

      Sao Paulo Jan 8, 2013 at 6:39 AM

      Hi I'm flying through Sao Paulo and have an option of one of 15 two flights. the one is a short stop over which will not give us time to exit the airport.

      The second option is a wait of 15 hours before our connecting flight. This might give us time to book into a hotel and see a little of the city. What worries me is the time of departure of our connecting flight.

      1) Will the afternoon and evening be worth the visit into the city?
      2) If so do we catch a bus or train into the city and if so what connections?
      3) Which area should we book our hotel close to airport or night life in a safe area?
      4)Is there transport from the city to the airport so early in the morning. Our flight leaves at 6:20. what time to we need to arrive at the airport?

      Flight 1: Arrive Sao Paulo at 15:30. Flight leaves at 06:20
      Flight 2: Arrive Sao Paulo at 23:30 Flight leaves at 06:20

      Thank you

      can we do trips independently?

      Estado do Amazonas Aug 11, 2012 at 1:02 PM

      We will be cruising from Recife to Manaus in March 2013, calling at Natal, Fortaleza, Devils Island, Santarim and Boca De Valeria. The cruise ship trips are very expensive; is it possible to do trips independently?
      When we cruised Hawaii, we found a local firm that did all the same trips as the cruise, cheaper.

      travel agency in SP / RIO

      I will arrive in SANTOS in December 2012 by cruise from Europe. I would like to spend two / three weeks in Brasil before returning by flight from RIO DE JANEIRO. In this context I would like to ask for advice: Can you recommend a local travel agency which can deliver the following services:
      German (or English or French) speaking website / agents. Offering tours within Brasil (e.g. to Pantanal, seaside resorts, Iguazu). Taking care of individual transfer from port to airport (e.g. limousine, helicopter). I am looking for security and convenience rather than for “great deals”!
      Thanks for your assistance! Heinz

    • Malaria Medication

      Manaus May 11, 2012 at 4:24 PM

      My 2 teenage daughters are going on a mission trip with their youth group next month (mid June) for 10 days. We went to the pediatrician today to get their regular immunizations taken care of. While their I asked for a script for malaria and typhoid. I was told by the youth group leader they would need Malaria pills, Typhoid pills or and yellow fever immunization. So today the doctor gives me a script for Atovaquone. But she didn't write the strength on it. Also they would have to take it 4 times a day. It would be 200 and some dollars for the lesser strength and 530.00 for the stronger one. I was told by one of the other mom's that she got her daugther the once a day medication but she couldn't remember which one and she has Kaiser so her cost would be different.

      So I am wondering should I ask for a different prescription and if so which one? Wondering which one is the least expensive, least side effects, and easiest to take, and would hopefully only have to be taken once a day. Our insurance does not cover travel medications/immunizations. The least expensive yellow fever I could find was at Walgreens for 125.00 a piece.

      Any help is much appreciated!

      Sao Paolo - Accommodation?

      Sao Paulo Jun 2, 2011 at 4:11 AM

      I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions for accommodation for a couple of nights in Sao Paolo. The main consideration is location - hopefully somewhere safe but convenient, near a metro line. Looking online it seems like there's the dorm rooms in the hostel or the100+ hotels - would like something in between.

      Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

      Dear all
      I am a Taiwanese who is planning to Tefe, Brazil from Peru. After searching and reading a lof of info on forum, I know it can be done in two ways (my last stop in Peru will be Cusco) :

      1. Cusco--- fly ---->Puerto Maldonado (Peru) ---taxi ---->Iñapari ---taxi or walk ---->
      Assis Brasil ---bus-->Brasiléia---?--->Rio Branco (Brazil) -- fly-->Manaus--fly--->Tefe

      2 Cusco--- fly ---->Iquitos--- fly or boat? ---->Santa Rosa----bost---->Leticia ----
      taxi or walk-->Tabatinga --- fly or boat ---->Tefe
      My Q is that:

      1. Which way is less money and time-spending? I only have 5 days to do it, so time is more important than money to me if I can\'t save both.

      2. I don\'t speak Spanish and Portuguese. Which way is safer for me?

      Please also reply to if its not too much trouble, as I may not check here everyday.
      Many many thanks for your help!
