    • Cell Phones in Brazil

      Brazil Jul 3, 2015 at 8:02 AM

      Hi There! I will be travelling to Brazil for 5 weeks at the end of July and need some information on how to get my cell phone working there. I know I'll have to purchase a SIM card once I land, but I'm looking for recommendations on which carriers and plans would be best.

      I will mostly need to call/text from Brazil to Canada, some local calls/texts, and a high data capacity (a bare minimum of 2 GB). I will be moving around Brazil with stops in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janiero, Salvador and the state of Maranhão. If anyone can help me out with some advice and recommendations, I would be very grateful!

      Best Months for Travel In South America re Weather

      Rio de Janeiro Jul 15, 2015 at 3:24 AM

      Hi

      I put this question on the south America Forum but received no answers. Hopefully greater response via this forum.

      Looking at taking a 18 day South America tour during 2016. Destinations included:

      Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 5 or 6 nights ( includes 2 days pre tour)
      Iguazu Falls, Argentina 2 nights (arrive by air)
      Buenos Aires 3 nights (arrive by air)
      Lima, Peru 3 nights (arrive by air)
      Cuzco 3 nights (arrive by air)
      Puno 2 nights

      June or July or early August would suit us best, however we can travel any month either side. Will have a round the world ticket (from Perth Australia) and intend to also visit Europe & UK which we have visited many times. The important thing is to visit South America during the better weather.

      Appreciate all answers.
      Mike

    • Flights From UK & Internal Flights between JP & Rio Visit Advice

      by puthsardarade Online Now Feb 15, 2011 at 7:16 AM

      Hi,

      I am looking to visit Joao Pessoa first and then travel down to Rio and fly back from Rio to the UK and I am hoping someone can advise on the below:

      1) Websites that I should be looking at when booking flights / Advice on flights from UK and onwards to Rio?
      2) Suggestions on how many days I should spend in JP and Rio?

      I am completing on a property which I am purchasing in JP so I was intending to fly out around 15th March and then perhaps stay a few days and travel on to Rio.

      Flights appear to be around £727 with TAM flying from London to Recife return and £634 from Manchester to Rio return.

      Manchester is closer to where I live however I would need to book internal flights either Recife and Rio or JP and Rio, so any advice on the above would be appericated?

      Thanks

    • Rainy Season in Joao Pessoa

      by lorizinha Online Now Feb 8, 2010 at 1:09 PM

      I'm considering bringing my family of four (including two small children) to Joao Pessoa for the month of May and the first part of June. I’ve learned, however, that this is right during the rainy season. Can someone explain the rainy season during this time? Does it consist of long, rainy days, or are there still lots of sunny, but humid days with quick and heavy downpours that occur usually during a particular part of the day or evening?

      Muito obrigada!

    • moving to joao pessoa

      by digitalninja Online Now May 31, 2008 at 11:32 AM

      I am looking to possibly move to Joao Pessoa for 6-12 months. I would be interested in renting a 1bdr apartment in a safe area. I want a place that is within a few miles from the beach (biking distance).
      As I work online, high speed internet is a necessity (cable/dsl). I will repeat that as to stress the importance of it, as I work online, high speed internet is a necessity (cable/dsl).

      1. How much would I expect to pay monthly for a place like this? (Ideally I would only like to spend200-$300 USD monthly) Are there places available that suite my needs? If so, where can I find them at or who can I call?

      2. I dont plan on owning a vehicle of any sort, just a bicycle. Are taxi's inexpensive?

      3. Living in Joao Pessoa, what would I expect to pay per month for each the following:
      Rent -
      Electricity -
      Internet -
      Cell Phone -
      Food -
      Gym Membership -

      I appreciate any feedback you can provide me with.
      Thanks,
      -Gabe

    • travelling in June

      by verrowe Online Now Apr 14, 2006 at 8:22 AM

      My husband and I are travelling to Recife on 1st June. We intend to spend about a week in recife before moving on to Joao Pessoa for a few days and then Natal for a few more days before returning to Recife on the 20th to fly home. We are considering buying a property in one of these areas or possibly in a village or town nearby. We would like to know which areas to avoid, which are good areas and can anyone recommend a good agent.
      We hope to hire a car. we are English but have lived in Spain for three years where the standard of driving is attrocious so are used to unpredictable driving. Is Brazilian driving worse? Can anyone recommend a cheap hotel in any of these towns or areas. Also some advice on what to do in these areas while we are there would be appreciated.
