Passport and Visa
Check if you need a visa to enter Brazil.
You will also need a passport that should be most probably valid for at least the next 6 months when entering the country.
Think about the vaccination if you are going to visit the area of Pantanal or Amazonia. There is no obligatory vaccine, however, it is worth to consult a doctor that specializes in travel medicine.
We suggest taking the yellow fever vaccine into consideration when wanting to visit this beautiful country.
You will receive a yellow vaccination book that you should take with you.
Buy insect repellents that will protect you from mosquito bites.
The best ones can be purchased in the pharmacy even after arriving in Brazil.
We always recommend buying travel insurance.
The costs are not high and it is always better to have it just in case.
Buy it online before coming to Brazil.
The currency in Brazil is real. You can exchange the currency in Brazil in banks, foreign exchange offices (câmbios), travel agencies and hotels.
We advise withdrawing the money at the airport and exchanging it there.
If you want to withdraw the money in the city, it is best to do it during the day in the big shopping centers.
Do not carry a lot of money with you as well.
You can also pay with your credit card – Visa, MasterCard and Maestro cards are generally accepted.
Transport and hotels
You can organize everything before coming to Brazil.
All the flight tickets can be bought online.
You may sometimes be lucky and find really cheap tickets to Brazil.
We suggest travelling by bus in Brazil; it is cheaper and very comfortable.
You can also buy the bus tickets online, for example, using the Brazil Bus Travel website (link).
If you decide to travel to Brazil during the high season, it is best to buy the bus tickets in advance.
You can book your seat on the website and be sure that there will be a spot for you on the bus.
Renting a car is also very easy.
You can do it at the airport or beforehand online.
We recommend buying the full insurance.
The conditions on the roads are good so you should not have any problems driving in Brazil.
If you travel to Brazil during the high season, do not forget to book the accommodation beforehand.
