Visit Sao Paulo - The DON'Ts of Sao Paulo, Brazil

Visiting Sao Paulo, Brazil, whether for work or play can be extremely rewarding with amazing museums and shopping, but there are a few things you should not do when you go to Sao Paulo. This video covers the Don'ts of Visiting Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Filmed in Sao Paulo State, Brazil
Copyright Mark Wolters 2017
1. Don't expect to get anywhere quickly in Sao Paulo. With so many people, cars and craziness it will take you longer than what google says it will to get anywhere.
2. Don't skip the Mercado Municipal! This Sao Paulo tradition is amazing. From amazing fruit to the best bologna or sorry Mortadella sandwich you ever ate.
3. Don't skip out on eating non-Brazilian food while in Sao Paulo. There are tons of amazing places, foods, restaurants and styles for you to enjoy!
4. Don't lose your wits. Pay attention! Sao Paulo has a reputation for crime for a reason.
5. Don't expect a beach vacation. Sao Paulo is not a Brazilian beach city, it is a cultural, shopping, museum, business hub for South America.

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?

==========NOTE: ==========
The CDC has identified Brazil as an affected area of the Zika outbreak. Pregnant women are advised to be cautious as the virus can lead to birth defects. Adults affected by the virus experience fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes) typically lasting a week. You can learn more by visiting the official CDC website.

====================
Brazil (Portuguese: Brasil) is the largest country in South America and fifth largest in the world. Famous for its football (soccer) tradition and its annual Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Recife and Olinda. It is a country of great diversity, from the bustling urban mosaic of São Paulo to the infinite cultural energy of Pernambuco and Bahia, the wilderness of the Amazon rainforest and world-class landmarks such as the Iguaçu Falls, there is plenty to see and to do in Brazil.

Brazil travel guide
===============

Amazon Rainforest - The Amazon River Basin holds more than half of the world's remaining rainforest, and over 60% of that lies within the North of Brazil — approximately one billion acres with incredible biodiversity. The region is home to about 2.5 million insect species, over 40,000 plants species, 2200 fish species, and more than 2,000 types of birds and mammals. One in five of all the bird species in the world live in the rainforests of the Amazon, and one in five of the fish species live in Amazonian rivers and streams.

Atlantic Forest (Mata Atlântica) - A region of tropical and subtropical forest which extends along the Atlantic coast of Brazil from Rio Grande do Norte state in the Northeast to Rio Grande do Sul state in the South. The Atlantic Forest has a wide variety of vegetation, including the many tree species such as the iconic araucaria tree in the south or the mangroves of the northeast, dozens of types of bromeliads and orchids, and unique critters such as capivara. The forest has also been designated a World Biosphere Reserve, with a large number of highly endangered species including the well-known marmosets, lion tamarins and woolly spider monkeys. Unfortunately, it has been extensively cleared since colonial times, mainly for the farming of sugar cane and for urban settlements — The remnants are estimated to be less than 10% of the original, and that is often broken into hilltop islands. However, large swaths of it are protected by hundreds of parks, including 131 federal parks, 443 state parks, and 14 municipal parks, most of which are open to visitation.

Campos Gerais - With a vast vegetation of grasses and areas of transition between the Cerrado and Atlantic Forest, this region offers beautiful scenery of cliffs and canyons, as Jaguaricatú Valley, beyond the fifth and the eighth most extensive canyons in the world, which are respectively Guartelá and Jaguariaíva . Jaguariaíva the canyon is made more beautiful rafting activity in Brazil.

Pantanal - A vast tropical wetland expanse, one of the world's largest. 80% of it lies within the state of Mato Grosso do Sul but it also extends into Mato Grosso (as well as into portions of Bolivia and Paraguay), sprawling over an area estimated at between 140,000 and 195,000 square kilometers (54,000-75,000 sq mi). 80% of the Pantanal floodplains are submerged during the rainy seasons, nurturing an astonishing biologically diverse collection of aquatic plants and helping support a dense array of animal species.

Waterfalls (Cachoeiras) - Brazil has an amazing range of impressive waterfalls of all sizes and shapes. Iguaçu Falls, in eastern Parana, is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world, truly a sight to see. The 353-meter Cachoeira da Fumaça in Bahia's Chapada Diamantina National Park is the country's second highest waterfall, after the Amazon's almost inaccessible Cachoeira do Araca. Other famous waterfalls include Caracol Falls, in a Rio Grande do Sul state park of the same name near Canela, Itaquira Falls, an easily accessible 168-meter fall near Formosa, Goiás, and the gorge at Parque da Cascata near Sete Lagoas, Minas Gerais. Aside from the nationally famous falls, in many parts of the country, particularly the South, Southeast, and Central West regions, you are rarely far from at least one locally-famous, named waterfall worth a short hike.
