Brazil Travel Blog

We began the month of March snorkeling at Praia do Forno in Arraial do Cabo.

Then we went to São Paulo for a a photowalk on glamorous Oscar Freire Street.

The tourism authorities of Rio de Janeiro launched an official app for smartphones.

We welcomed a new guidebook as the 2nd edition of the Moon Brazil guide is out.

On our weekly (or is it monthly?) shot we saw the Atlantic rainforest from the train.

We mentioned a very useful resource at a website with info on the bathing conditions on Brazilian beaches.

We revisited the Amazon thanks to Google Street View.

We reviewed another app for smartphones at Brasil 360º for iPhone and iPad.

And we issued a warning for those planning to visit Rio de Janeiro in June at a word of warning on accommodation in Rio de Janeiro during June 2012.
