    • Quiet place near Rio

      by tronkel Online Now Jul 19, 2015 at 2:43 AM

      I am looking for a place to stay not to far from Rio. It should be tranquil and relaxing. Would like to lay in a hammock and look at the monkeys... Does anyone know a place like this? Can be a nice pousada in a big garden too.
      Have been to Ihla grande so thats out of the question.

      Best Months for Travel In South America re Weather

      by Mikebb Online Now 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

    • Plug adaptors

      by Umneyy Online Now Jun 13, 2015 at 8:59 AM

      Hello,

      Going to Rio De Janeiro and was a little confused as to which plug adaptors we need to take. Some websites are giving us different information.

      If you could advise us which plug adaptors to purchase (and possibly link me to a photo of the plug socket types in Rio) that would be much appreciated.

      Many thanks!

      Shipping Household Goods from Rioto the United States

      by jwilliams2005 Online Now Oct 20, 2014 at 3:22 PM

      Boa noite fellow travelers,

      Next week, I will be moving back to the USA. Can anyone recommend a shipping company. I called American Airlines Air Cargo, and they told me that I needed to be a company or an agent in order to fly my household goods to the states. I have ten boxes which includes my bicycle and artwork. So, my next recourse is to have my cargo shipped. I appreciate any help or assistance.

      Obrigado,

      Rio Carnival accommodation

      by CorkyUK Online Now Sep 22, 2014 at 12:45 AM

      We are flying into Rio on Sat 14th Feb for a week. (We actually booked the trip from UK after finding a bargain flight and did not realise it was Carnival week!). However after initially being excited the cost of accommodation seems to be through the roof, some hostels are charginh £50 a night for a dorm bed and insisting you stay at least 6 nights. Can anyone recommend somewhere that is reasonably good value? Is it worth taking a chance and booking late? Maybe we should get out of Rio altogether alough our flight does arrive quite late? Any suggestions or ideas really appreciated

    • NON-touristy romantic restaurant in RIO??

      by JA914 Online Now Jul 28, 2014 at 1:34 PM

      Hi, winkI have been checking Rio on the forums as I'm going there this Aug (2014) with my fiance who is from Rio and still keeps an apartment close to Copacabanna Beach. I was hoping to surprise him (Since he is the local) with setting up reservations and plan a romantic heartnight for us of dinner and dancing. I'm looking for a more "local" place with less of a touristy feel.enlightened I'm sure that HE would be able to find one quickly but my point is about surprising him and making him feel special that I took the time and thought to put a night together for him in his home town. Any suggestions? - Julie

      Sugar leaf and Corcovado - technical questions

      by schmechi Online Now Jun 4, 2014 at 4:42 AM

      As far as I checked for both attractions online tickets can be purchased in advance via http://www.bondinho.com.br/site/en/ and http://www.corcovado.com.br . Unfortunately the latter is only in Portugues language and the FAQ's of the first one indicates, that a (Brazilian?) RG, CPG, CNF etc. is needed... Is that true? Does any foreigner without Brazlian tax number etc. has experience in buying tickets for those attractions online in advance? Or is it just impossible to buy tickets in advance for foreigners?

      BTW: Which time of the day you'd recommend to visit this sights?

      And are there any maps with hiking trails up to (or rather down from) Corcovado through Floresta da Tijuca online?
