Brazil Mini Guide

Known as the sexy home of samba music and one of the world’s biggest and most vibrant places, travellers are sure to enjoy themselves in Brazil. The two most popular entertainments in Brazil are the Rio carnival and football, and with their team widely regarded as the best in the world there is often reason to celebrate.

Rain Forest Brazil

From the Amazon rain forests in the heartland of this American country to the massive sandy beaches at its coast, Brazil would take many lifetimes to explore properly.  Renting a car is the best way to do so and you might want to learn some Portuguese before making the journey so that you can find your way around without any trouble.
It is possible to drive into Brazil from its many neighbouring countries including Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay, Peru, Bolivia, Columbia, Venezuela and Guyana. Should you take any of these routes be sure to map out your journey well in advance and consult plenty of travel guides as well as the relevant embassies.

International arrivals to Brazil are well catered for thanks to the number of international airports making arriving direct from hundreds of cities around the world possible. The Guarulhos airport in the city of Sao Paolo is the biggest in the country followed by Galeao International airport in Rio De Janeiro. Brasilia is another well used airport.

The main airlines which do flights to Brazil are TAM, Gol, WebJet, TAF and Oceanair as well as the Portuguese airline TAP. A Brazil 'airpass' is a cost efficient means of travelling within Brazil on internal flights. Tourist visas are always required so you should get these well ahead of time.

Copacabana Beach Brazil

Brazil is well served by international and domestic flights, particularly from within South America. Safety is always a key consideration in Brazil and you should take care never to leave valuable belongings in your car or drive at night in bad neighbourhoods. Roads are often of a poor standard as is the driving of the locals but car rental is still the best way to explore certain spots such as the Rio-Santos highway, or the beaches in the North-East. Cars are driven on the right hand side of the road and flashing headlights are used regularly for a variety of purposes.
