Is there somebody who can give me the e-mail address from www.brazil4ever.com. In 2008 we made some excursions with the Dutch Guy Emile/Emelio. We would like to make excursions with him in October 2011 again.
I'm travelling to Pipa next month arriving in Natal airport. I'd like some advice on transportation from Natal to Pipa (and cost) considering I'm travelling with my wife and 8 months old baby girl.
Thanks a lot,
Can anyone tell me if there is a patron saint of Natal? And if not, is there a patron saint of Brazil?
I am planning to go from Natal to Fortaleza by buggy (or 4x4) on the beach and would like to know if one can rent a buggy in Natal and return it in Fortaleza. Any tips appreciated!
I'm planning to go to Natal with my fiancee, and am looking for an economical but nice accommodation? Does anyone have any recommendations. I'm hoping to pay in the 35 to 60 USD range, but prefer small and quaint over any massive hotel chain. Proximity to beaches is also important to us.
I know this is an open ended question, but what highlights do Natal and the surrounding area have to offer. My fiancee and I are planning our trip and our current itinerary seems to have us sticking close to the coast and beaches. I'm somewhat concerned that as great as beach life is, it might start to all blend together by the end. Is there anything that you could recommend around Natal that could take us away from the beach?
I would like to know where are the better places to stay in Natal...Hotels or Pousada's!!!!
I will be there from end of December until Janaury 5 or 6th of 2007. I'm looking to live there as I will be semi-retiring from the United States.
Look forward to someone responding any giving me some insight to the city and its adventures.
Im interested in staying in Natal for 3 to 4 months this summer. I spent all of last summer in Rio de Janiero, and I dont really want to go back. Anyway, I was hoping to get some info about cheap hostels/hotels. I'm going there to train brazilian jiu jitsu (again), so I just need a place to sleep.
Does anyone know what the weather is like in March in Natal. We are staying in the Via Costeria region hopefully changing our holiday to next yr.

I was going to take a mixture of Reals and some Sterling Pound traveller cheques but i have been told no where in Natal will exchange £ cheques.

Hi Vt Members

Olá a todos!
Estou a ponderar ir para Pipa no próximo dia 25 de Junho e passar lá uma semana. No entanto, tenho visto a previsão de tempo para Pipa e só tem dado chuva nas últimas semanas. Gostaria que alguém local me informasse se estas são apenas chuvas passageiras em dias de sol ou se, pelo contrário, tem estado sempre a chover e o sol só espreita de vez em quando. E como será que vai estar o tempo na semama que vem? Alguém faz ideia?

Hi vt members
i want to go to Brazil next next year with my fiance Gaz. We have priced up lots of hotels, and some of the 2-3 stars seem to have better customer feedback than the 4 or 5 star hotels.
We have priced up the Hotel Praia Azul Mar and really like the look of it. Please let me know anything about this hotel if you have been to Ponta Negra. It would be great to have some peace of mind on it. Its a fantastic price to go and i really want to book it soon.
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.
My family will be visiting Punta Negra, via Natal, later this month for a (mainly) beach holiday.
Looking at the UK Dept of health etc websites, it seems that we need loads of injections for Yellow Fever, Cholera, Typhois, Hepatitis etc etc.
Bearing in mind that we won't stray far from the hotel and beach, apart from a couple of organised excursions, do we need all of these jabs - painful and costly?
I´m traveling next monday to Natal where I was told there´s not Carnaval on February. We want to go to next Joao Pessoa where there is Folia da Rua the week before carnaval (our week). How long it takes to go form one to the other and how to go there?? Where to go once in J.P.? wich day is the best?
Thanks to any reply, will be very helpful
Visiting Brazil for 3 weeks and flying out this Tuesday. This is our first visit (2 couples) and we are based in the Northeast. We want to combine beach with sightseeing but not sure what is realistic due to distances. Would like to see Rio, Iguacu Falls and wildlife in the Pantanal. Does anyone know if this is achievable? Is it worth getting an airpass in advance or can I book up flights quite easily when we get there? Also, does anyone have any indication of flight costs (cheap/expensive?)Not left myself much time to find out (only just found this site)but hopefully someone can advise. Many thanks - VHS.
