      Curitiba Sep 20, 2015 at 12:21 AM

      Hello everybody, I m new here and this is my first request.
      I have to work in São José dos Pinhais start of November for 14 days. This will be my first time in Brazil. Now I m planning where to stay and what will be more comfortable and safe for my travel. My question is should I go for a Hotel in Curitiba maybe close to a mall or should I go for a hotel in SJP? How is the traffic in the morning and evening to go to/from SJP? And finally how safe is SJP? Any advices are welcome.
      Thanks in advance.

      Foz do Iguaçu Apr 20, 2014 at 4:53 AM

      Hello, is there a way to book a bus ticket instead of flying from Sao Paulo to Foz do Iguacu, Brazil side. I would be coming from the Paulista area and staying in Parana of Foz do Iguacu. If i can buy a ticket online how far in advance can I purchase it? What is the approximate cost? If not, how far in advance should I buy it in person and where is the terminal located? I don't mind about travel time since I am not in a hurry.

      Hi all,

      I am planning to head to see the falls either tomorrow or Sunday from Asuncion. Can anyone advise with the following please?

      1) Info on getting to Foz from Asuncion by bus? According to my guidebook it takes 5 hours. Any recommended tips on making that journey? I prefer to avoid overnight bus travel if possible.

      2) Any recommendations on where to stay when I get there? Somewhere mid ranged is fine, ideally no more than 80 usd.

      3) Whats the best means of getting from there to either of Buenos Aires or Montevideo? I am ware there´s a daily flight from Asuncion to Buenos Aires but if there is a direct flight to BA or Montevideo that doesnt cost the earth then I'd be delighted to consider it.

      Any help is much appreciated.

      Curitiba during Carnaval! What to do?

      Curitiba Dec 25, 2011 at 3:06 PM

      Hey everybody,

      I'm comming down to Brazil during Carnaval for the first time ever. Don't want to deal with the insanity of Carnaval in Rio, so I've decided that I'll catch a flight down to Curitiba during the main Carnaval dates of Feb. 17th to 21st. Are there any particular events that usually take place in Curitiba during Carnaval that are worth attending .... or should I just take a little trip to Ilha do Mel and chill over there?

      Any suggestions?
      Thanks - Skull!

    • Renting an apartment in Curitiba

      Hi everyone,

      I'm going to be visiting Curitiba (specifically UFPR) this Sept, and will be there for 1 month. I was wondering if renting a fully furnished apartment might be the best way to go? How should I go about finding such a place (unfortunately, I don't speak Portuguese as yet.. are there any English resources?) Are there areas to avoid (safety-wise)?

      Also, is it easy (& cheap) to get around to the major tourist sites/ big cities?

      Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

      Obrigado :)
