      Hi all,

      I will be in Fortaleza with a friend on the 25-26 of july and i wanted to take tickets for the Fortal 2015. I struggle to find any info on it away from the the official website in portuguese.

      Do you guys know which tickets i should buy? And what should i expect from it? Is there any particular package?

      I wanted to go for the Camarote Mucuripe (Sab+Dom), but it is impossible to understand what i will get for that and how i would collect my ticket.

      Any info would be welcome.

      If anyone will attend happy to get in touch to go as a group as well

      6 weeks in Brasilia

      Brazil May 13, 2015 at 2:33 PM

      Hello, i'm a student and planning to participate in a volunteer program for 6 weeks this summer. Among my options for destinations is Brasilia(also Serbia,Egypt,Russia and Tunisia), which seems to be more appealing to me since i live in Greece and i think it will be once in a lifetime experience to go that far and also sounds quite exotic. Is it worth? is the weather good in July? Google search for images shows mostly buildings and lacks people and life is it as it seems?

    • 4 weeks in September

      Brazil May 11, 2015 at 7:14 AM

      Hi all,

      three of us (students in the twenties) are planning to travel through Brazil for four weeks in September. We have never been to South America before, yet are fairly experienced traveler. I've read the northeast should be a good time to travel for September.

      What do you think? Any recommendations for a route?

      I'd prefer a mix of coast and inland, though I have no idea if that is possible to realize ;).

      Thanks a lot guys!!

      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
