Your Spanish will not get you far in this corner of South America.

There are so many differences between the Iberian languages, that a small Brazilian Portuguese phrasebook will be your best investment. Even the days of the week have nothing in common.

Travelling In and Around Brazil

A commonwealth of Portuguese-speaking countries was formed on July 17th, 1996, to preserve the Portuguese language, coordinate diplomatic efforts, and improve cooperation among its members: Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, and Sao Tome and Principe.

Getting Understood

Learn about the language.

Getting Around Brazil

Brazil by Bus

Being such a large country, travelling around Brazil takes time.

The bus stations are called Rodoviarias, and you'll find buses going to just about everywhere around the clock.

Some of the long distance sleepers are quite luxurious (leitos), but you'll pay more to travel in less cramped conditions on seats that stretch out to perform like beds.

Most seats on the busses need to be reserved, so don't count on turning up and moving on like you might in Colombia or Venezuela.

Brazil by Boat

Travel by boat down the Amazon is easy from Manaus. Just turn up at the quay for schedules of the boats.

Three to five days sleeping in hammocks on the deck is fun, but the rice and fish can get monotonous, so bring a bag of goodies to cheer you up.

Some of the boats have bars, and quite a party can be had if you meet up with a good crowd.

Brazil by Air

If time is limited and your budget extends to it, you may consider covering the large distances by air.

Airlines and Airports:
Many international airlines fly to Brazil.

Brazilian Airpass

The TAM Brazilian Air Pass is an economical way to travel within the country.

South America Airpass

The Mercosur Airpass was an economical way to travel between Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay.

A TAM South America Air Pass or a LAN South America Airpass are now better alternatives.
