    • 2 months in floripa

      Florianópolis Dec 10, 2014 at 9:03 PM

      We're a couple in their 30s coming to relax and have some quiet beach time in Florianopolis (Feb 6th, 2015 to April 15th). No clubs nor parties for this trip. It's more of a healing journey during treatment. We'll have a car so we can move from place to place but we'd rather stay in Florianopolis for a long time, a month for sure.

      I'm a bit overwhelmed with looking for a place to stay. Does anyone know an imobilaria that could help me?

      Or could anyone suggest where I look?

      Thanks!

      John

    • workaway type volunteering in Brasil

      Brasília Dec 10, 2014 at 5:41 AM

      hi, I am new to this website so I hope you can help me. I am also new to Brasil, and looking for a workaway style volunteering opportunity ie at hostals etc, somewhere by the sea for Christmas and New Year... I am currently in Rio and would ideally like anywhere between here and Florianapolis in the South, or to the north, but not so far that will cost lots of Reals to get to... I am already on workaway already, but getting no luck on there, whether that is because I speak no Portugese (yet) or that I am older traveller, or its just a busy time of year... I am a positive and enthusiastic backpacker... so any tips would be greatly appreciated.

      Detention Center in Sao Paulo, Brazil

      São Paulo Dec 5, 2014 at 3:29 PM

      A friend was deported to Brazil from Africa very recently. Although he was using his Brazilian passport, he has not been in Brazil for many years...he is a USA green card holder but his green card has expired. I do not know the Portuguese language but I was told the Federal police station where he is being held is on Rua Guainases? Does anyone know where I can get information on him?

      Xmas/New Year's travel

      Brazil Dec 11, 2014 at 7:01 AM

      I'll be heading to Brazil (Sao Paolo, Rio, Salvador) for Xmas and New Year's. How easy will it be to get last minute flights/buses at that time?

      As i do not have a CPF, i'm having trouble booking on-line, plus i hate to be so set-in-stone. Can i get a ticket with a day or 2 notice? Will everything be sold out? Will transport prices go through the roof?

      by ladysail Online Now Feb 14, 2008 at 6:45 PM

      Hi....just wondering if anyone knows how steep the hill is that takes a person into Olinda. Is it too steep to walk up? Is there a bus, shuttle bus, that would take people up the hill from Recife?

      Thank you,

      In Recife for a few hours only: What to choose Recife or Olinda ?

      by jocelysue Online Now Jan 12, 2008 at 11:20 AM

      On our cruise, our ship is docking in Recife from 8a.m. to 3 p.m. Hardly any time to see anything as we have heard that many sites are closed during lunch hour. What would you suggest that would help us get a "taste" of Recife or Olinda so that we can bring back interesting memories. We are interested in people and their customs mostly and are not attracted by beaches.

      TIA for your input.

    • Olinda info

      by GIORGIOB2007 Online Now Nov 21, 2007 at 7:31 AM

      Hello,

      I have collected that Recife is not safe place. But what about Olinda. Both are only away 5KM. Is it Olinda quite safer and are there many tourists there ? Is there a nice beach in Olinda where tourists prefer or various beaches ? How big is the place ? If I stay in the city center how far is the beach. could i walk the area on foot or is not that small place?

      I have read one suggestion about accommodation to Pousada od Amparo. Anybody else has any other economic suggestions?

      Thanks!

    • Olinda hostel/hotel Carnaval, also from there?

      by AndrewKS Online Now Jan 4, 2005 at 1:17 PM

      Does anyone have a recommendation of where my friend and I could stay in Olinda during Carnaval? Also, after Carnaval we have around 10 days before we fly from Manaus to Buenos Aires. I was thinking of heading to Belem, taking a Amazon cruise to Manaus and then seeing the jungle from there before moving on. Does anyone know about the the river cruise from Belem to Manaus? Should I bother with other places instead, like Fortaleza? Natal?

      Carnival in Olinda

      by Emmi11 Online Now Oct 25, 2004 at 8:25 AM

      I will be travelling in Brazil again next year but am not yet sure whether we will be in Olinda or Rio for Carnival. There doesn't seem to be any apartment/house rental in Olinda, and prices are even more expensive than Rio. Can anyone help or advise of options? Also, I am a little claustrophobic! I was OK in the sambadromo last year and OK at Banda da Ipanema, but some friends have said that I might find the crowds in Olinda a bit too much - can anyone offer any advice??? THANKS x
