Is Brazil safe for tourists?
Brazil has seen vast improvements to keep tourists safe since the 2014 World Cup and have continued to improve with the upcoming Olympics. Like any destination there are areas to avoid, you should follow standard travel advice to keep yourself safe and ask your specialist if you have any doubt. But this is wonderful country that should not be avoided.
Brazil is so large how do I get around?
For 2-week Brazil itineraries you will most likely need to fly to cover the large distances and there are many routes and great airfares available. However, if you are lucky enough to have the time then buses are a possibility and with a large budget private transfers also.
How far in advance should I plan for the Carnival?
As this is one of the largest festivals in the world this is best to book well in advance (at least 6 months) especially as hotels in Rio will only offer minimum stay periods of at least 4 nights with increased rates. Booking sooner will help you budget for the extra costs at this time of year.
