Special Notes
  • For bookings with 2 or more rooms please indicate how the travelers will be paired together in the "Reservation Request" box during booking.
  • Tour packages are completely non-refundable & non-transferable once confirmed.
  • Names on reservations must match the information included in your passport(s). You are responsible for providing us with your legal first and last names as they are shown on your passport. Once your package is processed, name changes are NOT allowed.
  • American citizens are required to obtain consular visa to visit Brazil.
  • Tour packages are completely non-refundable.
  • Customers can arrive and depart at any time and be offered complimentary pick-up and drop-off.
  • Brazilian Visas:
  • Brazil maintains a reciprocal visa policy whereby a visa is required by any citizen of any country requiring Brazilian citizens to obtain a visa. U.S., Canadian and Australian citizens REQUIRE a visa . You should check with the Brazilian Embassy or consulate having jurisdiction for your specific area of residence for the very latest visa information.If you require a visa, it can be obtained by application to Brazilian Embassy or consulate the having jurisdiction for your specific area of residence. Once issued, a visa must be used to enter Brazil within 90 days of its issue date.
  • Immigration & Customs:
  • 1. When you arrive, you will need to clear both Brazilian immigration and customs. Your airline should distribute immigration and customs forms for you to fill out before your arrival. There will be different immigration lines for Brazilian citizens and foreigners.
    2. At immigration, make sure you get your passport stamped and keep the copy of the entry form that you are given. Don't lose it. You'll need to surrender this entry form copy to immigration officials upon your departure from Brazil. If you don't have your passport stamped or lose your copy of the entry form, you'll have to be specially cleared by the Federal Police before being allowed to leave the country and you could be fined. All American citizens are both photographed and fingerprinted as part of their immigration clearance process.
  • Brazilian Currency:
  • 1. Brazil's currency unit is the real (plural = reais) and is made up of 100 centavos.
    2. The real is issued in denominations of 1 real (1 real notes have been discontinued but the coin is everywhere), 2 reais, 5 reais, 10 reais, 20 reais, 50 reais and 100 reais.
    3. Centavos are issued in denominations of 1 centavo (discontinued and rarely seen), 5 centavos, 10 centavos, 25 centavos and 50 centavos.
    4. It's best to carry nothing larger than 10 or 20 reais bank notes. This will make it easier to make small purchases as well as easier for small vendors, stores, and restaurants to provide you with change.
    5. You will have no need for any reais until you have fully exited Brazilian immigration and customs so avoid exchanging money at your departure airport in North America or Europe. Money exchanges at departure airports outside Brazil usually provide a very poor exchange rate. The international airports in Rio de Janeiro (Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport) have several bank operated, money exchange booths just outside the immigration and customs area. The airport also has money exchange offices throughout the city and some hotels offer currency exchange. Traveler's checks are almost impossible to use anywhere except the very largest cities, and even then, only at certain currency exchanges.
    6.Caution:especially when dealing with money, keep in mind that, in Brazil, the use of commas (,) and periods (.) expressed in numbers is exactly the opposite of what is used in the United States. Brazilians use a period (.) instead of a comma (,) —to delineate thousands— and a comma (,) instead of a period (.) —to delineate fractions. Normally, an amount in reais is written as R$, consequently, R$ 6,00 (with a comma) is six reais and R$ 6.000 (with a period) is six thousand reais. Likewise, for amounts with fractions (centavos), it's 1.045,25 instead of 1,045.25 (one thousand, forty five reais and twenty five centavos) or R$ 10,25 instead of R$ 10.25 (ten reais and twenty five centavos).
  • Using Credit & Debit Cards:
  • 1. Using a credit or debit card can be an ideal way to avoid carrying more cash than you require for just incidental expenses. Most hotels, restaurants, and stores in Brazil readily accept Visa and Master Card.
    2. If you intend to use your Visa or Master Card credit card(s) in Brazil, you may also want to alert the bank that issued your card(s) that you will be traveling in Brazil and using your card there. Some banks have been known to block a card when it is used in an area they consider 'abnormal' for the card.
  • Safety & Security:
  • 1. The vast majority of all Brazilians are honest, forthright, hardworking people. Like any society, especially in the larger urban areas.
    2. Don't carry large amounts of cash with you on the street.
    3. Don't carry what you're not going to need and use during any excursion. Make Xerox copies of your passport picture/information page(s) and Brazilian visa page and carry only these with you for identification. Some travelers carry a "fake" wallet in their back pocket. It's only stuffed with paper and a couple reais but provides a pickpocket or mugger with a "conquest" if one should be encountered.
  • Health Issues:
  • 1. Almost all Brazilian cities have treated water supplies. Either way, you're probably not going to get sick from drinking the water, anything washed in it or ice cubes made from it.
    2. If your travel plans include time at the beach, limit your exposure to the sun to recommended time limits and use a sun block with a rating of 30 or more.
    3. Numerous farmácias (pharmacies) or drogarias (drug stores) are located throughout Brazil.
  • Food & Restaurants:
  • Most restaurants where you order from the menu (and have a waiter) will automatically add a 10% service charge to your conta (bill). This is the waiter's tip. Unless the service was exceptional and/or very personal, there's no need to leave anything additional. Many restaurants cannot add the tip to a credit card charge and the waiter may inform you of this fact as he points out his uncharged 10% on the conta (bill). He'll want cash.
  • Electricity:
  • Electric current in Brazil varies widely—from 100 to 127 volts or 220 to 240 volts and from 50 to 60Hz—even within the same city, building, apartment or office. Be aware before you plug in any electrical device. Some cities in Brazil only use 220 volts. While many hotels clearly label electrical outlets, others don't. If you're in doubt, ask first. Check the power adapters of you laptop, battery chargers and other electric appliances before you go. Many are designed to automatically accommodate input current from 110 to 250 volts while others are only for 110. Some are switchable and others not. If you have something that only accepts 110 volts, you may want to consider purchasing a voltage adapter before you travel. Also be aware that many electrical outlets in Brazil that will only accept a standard Brazilian two round prong plug. You may need a plug adapter.
  • Depending on your arrival time, your hotel room may not be available until the afternoon. Most hotels allow check-in between 1:00pm-3:00pm, however some charge a fee for early check-in. Please check at the hotel desk to see if you may store your luggage at the hotel if you wish to explore the city on your own before check-in.
