10 Things NOT To Do in Brazil

Get more Tips here!
Brazil is a beautiful country with attractive people, breathtaking sites, vibrant nightlife and of course the 2016 Olympics!

The Zika virus is mainly transferred by mosquitoes and the highest probability of danger is posed to pregnant women, who should consider avoiding the area entirely. For everyone else, practice safe sex, wear lots of mosquito repellent, and wear long sleeves and pants.

Don't Speak Spanish
Many visitors travel to Brazil expecting to hear Spanish, but unlike its South American neighbors, Brazil’s native language is Portuguese! Don’t be that ignorant tourist attempting to converse with the locals in broken Spanish.

Don't Flash the Cash
Although Brazil is a relatively safe country, there are still many poor areas. Don’t wear your most expensive watch or wave around your new camera, because it will be pocketed.

Don't Make the OK Sign!
It is a highly offensive rude gesture in Brazil. However, thumbs up does mean something similar to okay, literally “beleza” or “beauty,” and is frequently used.

Don't drink alone
It is customary practice in Brazil to share your “estupidamente gelada” or 'stupidly cold beer' with others. Most bars only sell beer in 700 ml bottles and sometimes even strangers will show up with their own glasses.

Don't Lose Your Consumption Card
Many bars and nightclubs will operate using a consumption card, for each customer to record food and drink orders. Patrons are expected to settle their bill before leaving, and not doing so results in large fines.

Don't be Impatient
Things move at their own pace in Brazil. Long lines are common for everything from ATMs to grocery stores, so be prepared to wait patiently.

Don't Forget the Amazon
Don’t be afraid to venture out into the more remote areas. Take a trip to the Amazon Rainforest, Iguaçu Falls, smaller towns like Olinda and Ouro Preto or travel to the Fernando de Noronha archipelago to experience some of Brazil’s best kept secrets.

Brazil is still a developing country, and you will come across extreme poverty, favelas, drug-torn cities and rude people. Don’t ever visit the favelas alone as they are run by drug lords and can be extremely dangerous.

Don't Try to Enter Without a Visa!
There are only a few visa exempt countries (mainly South American and Caribbean nations), the U.S. is not one of them. Brazil requires a visa for visitors traveling from Canada, and most European, Asian and African countries too. However, the process is very straightforward.

Do you think Brazil has benefited economically by hosting the Olympics?
Or has the Zika Virus held back too many tourists?

What Not to Pack for Brazil

The Olympics are coming up and this year they take place in Brazil. With many foreigners coming in the spirit of party, it is tempting to see predatory behaviour towards women and think: “when in Rome! (or Rio de Janeiro). Why is that so?
This video encourages foreigners to not forget their morals at the airport. Machismo and rape culture are a big issue in Brazil, an issue that individuals and feminist groups are engaged in fighting.

Let's keep talking!

Hi! I'm Laís, and I talk weekly on the internet about potential solutions to world problems that don't require super powers. Stick around so we can learn something together.

Things I've Heard About Brazil (before moving there!)

I'm moving to Brazil on October 1st, and I thought it would be a fun project to talk about what my expectations are for moving there before I actually go! I also hope it is interesting to those of you who are from Brazil, and I can't wait to make the second part of this video once I actually get there!

Brazil Travel Tips - enough with the s**t spread.

What you need to know about safety, street foods and other useful tips.
There`s enough negative stuff being spread already, let`s now talk about how tourists can enjoy their stay in Brazil, what street foods not to miss, some cool stuff that make great souvenirs and such, shall we?
Brazil is not prepared to host the Olympics. It`s a fact. But it doesn`t really matter how much people object and protest against it on social media and spread s**t in a mass boycott attempt: it IS happening and there`s not much anyone can do about it besides trying to be helpful.


HOW TO STAY SAFE IN BRAZIL – in today’s episode, I talk about Brazil and staying safe when travelling in South America’s beautiful country. A couple of weeks before posting this video, a British family were on holiday in Rio de Janeiro and took a wrong turn into a favela with their hire car. They were shot at and the women in the passenger seat was injured. It’s very important to be alert while here in Brazil and take a few common-sense safety precautions…

what is the rio carnival
A short introduction about the carnival in Rio.

about the Carnival of rio

The Carnival in Rio de Janeiro is definitly one of the most well known festival in the world,

The celebration is held for 5 days, 40 days before Easter.

what your watching is the samba parade at the Sambódromo in rio de janeiro

what is the samba parade?

the famous samba parade is where samba schools in neiboughing areas collaborate and create there own float.

5 divisions compete (to the death!) no, the top 5 schools perform their own dance and parade down the strip

at the end, the floats and performers are judged on overall impressions, costumes, float and props.

Do I need tickets for Rio Carnival?

Only for the official Samba competition.

This takes place at the Sambódromo and requires a booking

other than that, everything else is free!

tickets range from $60-$1,000 for the first day and get more expensive toward the finals

there a lot more events happening all around the area

theres smaller carnivals and street parties around rio as the festival takes place.

The street parties are known as blocos. there not as elegant but your into the party scene or love to watch the local people celebratin doing their thing then hit the streets

These are groups of people in special costumes or matching shirts walking around and following big floats called trio elétrico. If you like the rhythm or the people seem nice, just join them.

every year there is a theme in the street parties and this was David Bowie

Is Rio Carnival safe?


don’t expect prim and proper manners among big crowds.

People will step on your toes, you will be doused in unexpected beer showers and there are plenty of weird chat-up lines from over-excited samba addicts flying around. But lighten up! It’s Rio Carnival!

Over 500,000 foreign visitors attend the Carnival every year with over 2 million people on the streets, apparently in 2011 there was 4.9 million people involve with the rio carnival.

The first festival was in 1723, thats 6 years shy of 300 years today.

Originally, Carnival was a food festival, because it was the last time to eat abundantly before the 40 days of Lent, a period of frugality starting on Ash Wednesday.

but the carnival and samba parade you see today reallyy started with the “lets talk parade” that started in 1929, its been getting bigger, with bigger stadiums and more people every year.

Rio carnival is the best time to experience the brazilian culture.

Andy and Steph's trip of South America continues as they head into Brazil.

Episode 7 begins on the Brazilian side of the immense Iguazu Falls. They then take a 20 hour bus to reach Florianopolis, where surfing becomes Andy's daily challenge.

The colonial town of Paraty with is cobblestone streets is the next destination. Here they take a boat to see all the Islands and Steph gets a little too close for comfort with the marine life.

In Ilha Grande 'A Couple of Travellers' become a couple more as they meet up with friends from Australia. First stop on the adventure is unfortunately the doctors for Andy before they go in search for the remote beach of Lopes Mendes.

The groups Brazilian adventure concludes in Rio de Janerio where they battle the crowds to get a view of Christ the Redeemer. They are then mesmerised by the incredible views at the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain. This leg of the journey ends with a football match at the enormous Maracana Stadium.

I drew up a very small list of pros and cons of living in Brazil as a gringo. There are many more to talk about on either side, but these are starters.

Living in Brazil, for gringos, can be challenging, but is also very life enriching and a learning experience. I love Brazil and have the Brazilian map tattooed on my chest.

The Rio carnaval is the most famous, but two other Brazilian cities host huge carnaval parades other than rio de janeiro - which are São Paulo and Vitoria, Espirito Santo state, which is where I am. The parade is held in a sambodromo called Sambão do Povo, and several samba schols from the city of Vitoria and surrounding cities, like Vila Velha, Cariacica and Serra participate. Each school's parade lasts for around an hour and is an intense riot of music, colours and dancing.
