Today’s blog post consolidates texts from all our sources on Brazil, including this Brazil Travel Blog but also D Airfare and the World Cup Brazil 2014. This is a summary of blog posts published during the month of October.

Brazil Travel Blog

We opened the month with a new weekly series bringing you images from all the corners of Brazil. To get started, we saw how the Amazon gets even greener for the World Cup, what peace and quiet at São Francisco, Boipeba island is like, how you will find colonial architecture in Noronha and how fond Brazilians are of an informal game of soccer at the beach.

A new service aimed at tourists was introduced in Rio de Janeiro and we gave details at 1746: Rio de Janeiro’s tourist information phone line. In English too!

It is that time of the year when we have to put the clocks forward. The details at daylight savings time 2011/2012.

At wise thoughts on living in Brazil we referred you to an excellent blog post.

Good news for music fans as SWU and Lollapalooza, two major music festivals, head for São Paulo.

We were delighted to know that Maranhão’s “bumba-meu-boi” has just been listed as Brazilian cultural heritage.

As many travelers have probably found out to their dismay, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo have the most expensive 4* hotels in the world.

We finish the month at the blog with our special report on the 2011 Brazilian F1 Grand Prix at Interlagos.

D Airfare

We began the month with the announcement of Copa’s new direct flight from Belo Horizonte to Panamá.

There might be a new direct route from Brazil to the Caribbean as Aruba is negotiating direct flights from Brazil.

During the summer season in the southern hemisphere Pluna will be operating a direct service from São Paulo to Punta del Este.

A new connection to a neighbour country as Avianca announces a Rio de Janeiro-Bogotá flight.

For a limited period of time, there will be a direct connection from Germany to the Amazon: Condor’s charter flight from Frankfurt to Manaus.

Air Europa is launching a new flight from Amsterdam to Salvador de Bahia.

Mexicans now have a great opportunity to fly direct to the awesome Iguazu Falls as Lan announces a new direct flight from Mexico City to Foz do Iguaçu. Speaking of Mexico, Tam is already flying from São Paulo to Mexico City.

Taca is increasing its number of fligths from Lima to Porto Alegre, allowing for easier access to the South region of Brazil.

The World Cup Brazil

We opened the month with an interesting article on the likely kick-off times for the World Cup matches.

Speculation on prices for world cup tickets have began and we gave details at world cup tickets to cost an average of R$380.

We returned to São Paulo for another virtual walkthrough of the Corinthians stadium.

In a country mad about football it can’t come as a surprise the news that bank holidays might be declared in places hosting world cup games.

November is an excellent month to be travelling throughout Brazil. Whether planning a trip to Brazil or embarking on one, have a great month!
