The best blog about Brazil

Planning on traveling to Brazil but don't know where to go, what to do or where to start? Well, this little website is here to help. Brazil is blessed with a great climate, wonderful beaches, and a youthful vibrance. To help you discover this Backpacking Brazil simply aims to provide relevant travel information for either your first trip or your next trip.

Backpacking Brazil is more a labor of love than a marketing exercise aimed at selling you an overpriced package tour but booking your accommodation through the website does help me keep it on air. The booking engine is maintained by Hostelworld and can also be found on Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor's websites. Select 'tour search' to find your overpriced tour.

Inside the best blog about Brazil, you'll find practical help on Brazilian air travel, destinations, price guides, visa information, and much more.

The site evolved out of a desire to travel and see many of the friends that I made in Brazil again. Remember, I'm not a travel writer, graphic designer, or web guru but I do have a long list of thank-yous. Brazil and helping others are two things I enjoy so click around, someone else has done most of the hard work for you.

Happy travels
