TRAVEL ADVICE

Brazil is a multifaceted country with a grand variety of people, cultures and landscapes. The official language is the Portuguese and there are no regional dialects but accents. Each place or region has its own particularities and reserve surprises even for the experienced travelers. In general you will find good structure and support for fishing and tourism, excellent food and extremely welcoming people. Take a look at the information Bravo prepared to help on your trip.

  • Passport & Visas

    A valid passport for at least six months is required for anyone. Visas are only required by citizens whose countries also require Brazilian citizens to acquire a Visa (reciprocal policy). Check out for further information (details, vaccinations, customs, etc) at your nearest Brazilian Embassy or Consulate.

  • Regular Transportation

    Brazilian Air Pass - An interesting option for who is planning to travel to different destinations in Brasil. The Air Pass is operated by TAM Airlines and works for domestic flights in Brasil; the company’s routes cover almost the entire country. To request the Air Pass travelers must purchase an international ticket first to any city in Brazil (flying with any airline).  The Air Pass can only be obtained outside of Brazil through TAM offices or authorized travel agencies.

    Bus services - Travelling by bus between cities may be a good option in Brasil.  As far it is more economical it consumes more time. Intercity buses are generally comfortable, providing reclining seats, air conditioning, mineral water and onboard toilets.

  • Currency - Cash

    The Brazilian currency is the Real (R$). US Dollars and Euros can be exchanged in larger cities, mostly at money exchange offices and authorized travel agencies. Traveler's checks are not much used and offer lower rates than cash. Smaller cities and towns many times do not offer exchange services.

    Credit cards - Visa and Master Card are generally accepted at hotels, restaurants and stores. American Express and others are not usually accepted. You should also alert your bank about the trip to Brazil and the use of your card there (some banks block a card when it is repeatedly used in a country they consider unusual). Many Brazilian banks offer ATMs where foreign cards are accepted and you’re able to get cash in Reais.

  • Health care

    Brasil has competent up to date doctors and excellent private medical infrastructure. Unfortunately public health does not work well. If you need assistance, it is preferred to look for private health services, which can be expensive but reliable.

    Tips: take care with sun exposure and drink lots of water. Brazil has treated water supplies almost everywhere; even though, it's better to drink only bottled mineral water and not take the risk.

  • Safety & Security

    Despite Brasil’s bad reputation on security issues, the country is rather safe for travelers. The majority of Brazilians are honest and correct and it is unfair to spot Brasil as dangerous for tourists. Crimes exist like in any other country in the world, and it is better to avoid walking at night on empty streets and areas or visiting poor neighborhoods alone. Most of the Brazilian tourism destinations are quite safe.

  • Electricity & Communication

    Electric currents in Brazil can be 127 volts or 220 volts. Be aware before connecting any electrical device and check about the current on where you are. Plugs may be also different from other countries, and most buildings accept the two flat and two rounded pin plugs. If your equipment have a different type of plug, maybe it is better to bring an adapter with you.

    Good telephone systems (fixed and mobile) are available in Brasil. Be careful if calling from hotels’ rooms, it may be very expensive; public telephones are spread almost everywhere. High speed internet services are easily found in hotels and internet cafes on the streets.
