Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world and occupies almost half of the entire South American continent. The coastline stretches for 7491 km and continues to be a major tourist attraction for the country. The shore is made up of mangroves, lagoons, dunes and spectacular coral reefs.


There are three time zones in Brazil: Brasília Time, Amazon Time and Fernando de Noronha Archipelago Time. The time zone which applies to Brazil's key tourist destinations (such as Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo) is Brasilia Time (BRT) which is 3 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-3).


The official language of Brazil is Portugese, but English and Spanish are usually spoken in touristic areas.

Best time

The best time to visit Brazil is from April to June, and August to October. Deciding on the best time to visit Brazil depends a lot on where you are going. In Rio de Janeiro conditions during the winter time (May to September) are like those of a north European summer. It is more like a north European autumn in São Paulo and the southern states and it can get very cold in the far south. The heaviest rain is from November to March in Rio and São Paulo, and from April to August around Recife. The rainy season in the north and Amazônia can begin in December and is heaviest from March to May. Summer time conditions all over the country are tropical, although temperatures rarely reach 40°C. The average annual temperature increases steadily from south to north.


Seek for medical advice before travelling to Brazil from your local health practitioner and ensure that you receive all of the appropriate vaccinations. As a guide tetanus, diphtheria, polio, typhoid, hepatitis A (for stays over 4 weeks) and hepatitis B (for stays over 3 months) are recommended. The tap water in Brazil is not safe to drink, so only drink bottled water and it's wise to avoid ice cubes in drinks and salads which may have been washed in unhygienic water. Take a small first-aid kit along with you which includes iodine, plasters, sterilon and anti-fever, diarrhea, constipation, insect bites, sunburn and possibly a cure for motion sickness. Consider also a tick, thermometer (unbreakable), ORS (Oral Rehydration Salts, from dehydration) and vitamin tablets. Hygiene traveling including a bottle disinfectant gel (to wash your hands without the need for water and soap) and disinfecting wipes. If you go to a malaria area, think of anti-malaria tablets, an ointment containing DEET and an impregnated mosquito net.

Travel documents

A valid Dutch passport is needed upon entering Brazil. Upon return in your home country the passport should be valid for 6 months more. No long stay visa is needed if your stay in Chile is no longer then three months. For all other nationalities, we advise you to contact the embassy or consulate of Brazil. All travelers, including kids at any age need to carry their own international passport. Keep a copy of your passport and other documents in your luggage and keep a digital copy, for instance in your mail. In case you lose your original documents you still have the copies.


Brazil has a reputation as a rather dangerous place. You should be vigilant, particularly before and during the festive and carnival periods. Use common sense while traveling in Brazil, just as you would in any other location.

Currency and banks

The official currency in Brazil is the Real. US Dollars are the most widely accepted. Exchange facilities are available at airports, banks or bureau de changes and it's advisable to request bank notes in smaller denominations, as there is often a lack of small change. ATMs are available in all large towns and cities, although there can sometimes problems withdrawing money. The most accepted credit cards in Brazil are Visa, Diners and American Express (Mastercard is not common). A combination of cash and cards is best.


Internet is commonly available throughout Brazil, almost all hotels provide good and free wireless internet (WIFI). If you bring a compatible (GSM only) cell phone to Brazil, it will only work if your provider offers roaming. Brazil uses GSM 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz and 1900 MHz frequency, so check, if your cell phone supports this one (older European phones don't).
