Re: Ask me about Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

this one is more directed for US people, it is a 5 year visa for 180 days with multiple entries, plan is to go to florianopolis for 2 weeks, then backpack Argentina/uruguay, then back to rio for carnaval, then backpack like chile, peru, paraguay, bolivia, etc, then maybe back

can we keep re-entering like this, it is so hard to find info on it online, going to try calling an embassy tomorrow, thanks in advance for anyone with the experience or knowledge on it

Re: Ask me about Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

will do guys, did tons of stuff today for the trip and taxes so I didn't get to it, I'll try tomorrow if I remember. It's so hard to find information on it online for some reason. I guess "normal" people leave the country and don't return.

Re: Ask me about Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

If anyone wants to escape the tourist scene and live in Sao Paulo for a month starting March 10th shoot me a PM. My friend and I will be Rio/Buzios until the end of Carnival then after the month in SP we may go back to Rio or to Florianopolis.

We're also having a tough time finding short term rentals. Anyone have decent info?

Well we're going to live in SP from the 10th of March to about the 10th of April, not Rio. I think we'll be in Rio while you guys are there though. I'll hit you up.

Re: Ask me about Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

Will be living in Buenos Aires for 5 months and want to visit Brazil at some point during this time. I understand that a tourist visa is necessary (for US citizens) before arrival. Only question is: Unsure of travel dates to Brazil during these 5 months and it seems that an itinerary/proof of purchase of tix to Brazil are necessary beforehand in order to get this tourist visa. Is there any way around this. Planning on visiting the Brazilian Embassy in NYC in about a week or two to get this. Any ideas?

Re: Ask me about Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

moved out of floripa, in porto alegre now

floripa is a beach scene, I wanted to site see and party some though, which you could do but covers are expensive (not an issue, just a point), however it's virtually impossible to communicate as almost no one there spoke a lick of English. The nightlife in Jurere up north is definitely better. I picked up a little bit of Portuguese, but not enough. I've enjoyed the city vibe of Porto Alegre more so far. Anyhow, just sharing my two cents, I'm sure others have been to these places and instantly ran hot to find people that spoke English and could help. Uruguay tomorrow so brushing up on Spanish now.

Re: Ask me about Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

Hey 40s, great thread so far and has def made me want to visit rio/ brazil.

I would like to do some sort of volunteer program in brazil early next year (want to organise it early as possible). i was just wondering if you know of any such programs. a quick search found this program which looks pretty good:

http://www.proworldvolunteers.org/pr...eaching-brazil

i am happy to pay as that includes portuguese lessons and its hard when i don't have any skills. thanks for any help anyone

40s,
How do I go about finding some live poker in floripa?

johnny,
Did all the bars have covers? How much? That's going to be annoying if we just want to go out and have a few beers.

hey, the covers in Jurere for the better clubs were about $50 to 100 USD, they are pretty good, and I´d go a few times, probably don´t need to go out too often there though

I cant post it here but if you check in my details you can find some extra help on it

Hi,

im gona try to answear in english bc it may help other users..

in my opinion, Rio is way better than Salvador.. girls are better.. beaches are better... and i dont know where u stayed in Salvador.. but the traffic there is horrible..

both ipanema and leblon are very nice, and the best places in Rio to stay..

Re: Ask me about Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

hi some questions, I am thinking about maybe going to Brazil for holiday


is prostitution legal? are the girls clean?

how are the hostels to stay in?

how is crime rates?

how much USD$ do you think one would need to have a 2 week holiday there?

how is the night life? is it nice and clam, safe, or a bit hectkit, fights etc etc?

are there still untouched parts of RIO, i.e the real brazil, were tourists dont go, is that bit safe?
