      Travel flow around Salvador Nov 10-25

      Brazil Oct 19, 2016 at 7:42 PM

      Flying into SSA around Nov 10 I want to visit the following places with minimal doubling back. How does this look?

      Nov 10 -arrive Salvador for Foz de Iguacu
      3 nights Salvador -
      3 days/2 night side trip Lencois (night bus from Salvador)
      2 night side trip Sao Felix/Cachoreia (from Lencois via Feira de Santana (bus)
      -Salvador via bus from Sao Felix/Cachoreia
      3+ night side trip Morro de Sao Paulo or maybe on to Boipeba (boat/boat) Somewhere with a decent balance of not to busy but not too secluded. a little nightlife is good, no wild parties. I'm 55 :)
      depart Salvador around Nov 25 for Rio

      Thanks in advance

      What is the weather like around Lençois in mid November? I read somewhere rains come in November. I'm thinking of a daypack only 3 day side trip from Salvador. Would I need rain gear?

    • Traveling from Surinam to São Luis

      São Luís Sep 6, 2016 at 9:12 PM

      Hi there, my friend and I are looking to travel to São Luis from Paramaribo, Surinam. We really want to visit Brazil but a state close to Paramaribo as we are traveling by ferry and bus as we do not want to be tied up in air travel. Is São Luis a near enough place to visit and how can we get from Paramaribo to SL without air travel? Any suggestions about other closer states are welcome. Thanks so much.

    • Kayaking the Amazon River. Kayak hire? Helpful info?

      Manaus Aug 17, 2012 at 6:20 AM

      I'm planning to kayak the Amazon. I have around 45 days.
      I'm in the early stages of planning.
      I'm looking to start in Manaus and head East to the Atlantic.

      Does anyone know of a place to buy or hire a kayak in Manaus?

      I'm open to any suggestions anyone may have regards independent travel along the Amazon. As I say I am in the early stages of planning.
      Any hiking trails? Routes? Or helpful info?

      How long to spend in Manaus before a cruise?

      Manaus Aug 19, 2008 at 5:42 PM

      I am seeking a general or ballpark time frame on how many days would be needed to get acclimated to and see the major sites of Manaus in April 2009.

      I have only done some preliminary checking so far and most "attractions" seem to up to 100 km away which leads me to think that perhaps at least 3 days would be needed to see the major highlights.

      Any feedback appreciated.

      Hi! I'm moving from Chicago to teach English in Sao Luis and am trying to find a chiropractor (quiropraxista) in Sao Luis or somewhere nearby (even if I have to go to Fortleza, Belem, etc.) Also, do you know if Brazil has something similar to chiropractors (bone setters, rolfers, etc.?) Thanks!
