buzios, brazil

What is the best way to explore the beaches in Buzios. How do i reserve a dune buggy in advance?

Re: buzios, brazil

Hello Fellow Traveler,

I have just returned from Rio New Years 2010. I did visit Buzios for a few days. You can generally rent a dune buggy via the Pousada where you are staying. I just ventured from the Pousada, and came across a Dune Buggy Rental Establishment, and within 30 minutes, I was driving my dune buggy. In my opinion, it is the best way to visit the many beaches. Fuel costs are inexpensive. You only have to refuel the amount that you have used. If you are looking for a nice Pousada; I can recommend the Villa Mercedes Hotel near Joa Fernandez Beach. The view was fantastic, staff very pleasant, very clean rooms, included breakfast, which was very nice also.

Travel Tips for Rio de Janeiro

First thing to do in Rio is to...

by titice

First thing to do in Rio is to have a walk by the sea, during sunset...
Of course the 'Christ' in Corcovado & Sugarloaf are also unmissable. What I most missed when I was living abroad was the warmth of the sun and the people here...

Can you bring your curling iron? YES

You don't need to buy an adaptor of any sort for Brazil. Any electronic bought and made for US use can be used in most parts of Brazil (ie. bigger cities). When you get into the really cool smaller towns you might have to go with wet hair. Electricity can vary within cities. Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo use 110 volts AC, Bahia (Salvador) and Manaus 127 volts AC, in Brasilia and Recife 220 volts AC. Most hotels do provide 110-volt & 220-volt outlets or adaptors. Check with your hotel which voltage is used in your room to avoid damaging your electronic equipment.

Give your leftover food to a homeless person.

by cachaseiro

The portions in brazilian restaurants are generally enormous and you are very likely to not eat everything when you go out in the evening.
If you donĀ“t want the food to go to waste then you can ask the waiter to give you the rest of the food in a doggy bag.
They will then arrabge it all on a plastic plate like a meal and put it in a bag and then if you pass a homeless person in the street on the way home then you can pass the food to that person so he/she gets dinner that night aswell.
This is a very common thing to do in Rio because there is a big problem with homeless people living without any financial support.

Sections of the beach

by racheljapi

Each beach in Rio has sections to it. In Ipanema there is the gay section, the family section, the more tourist section, and the playboy section. The playboy section is where all the local hotties go. So the playboy section is next to the family section which is next to the gay section. The regular locals are usually somewhere around the playboy section, to one side or another.

Well, we both love our lands and we were together in Niteroi for a cool beer and talking about our adventures in our continents. Many stories will be told about our adventures in the North and South Americas! They are all America, they are all our homelands!;) the difference is that Niteroi si a little bit warmer!;)

Picture taken in the Litoranea Avenue in Niteroi - COOL PLACE FOR BEER WITH FRIENDS, AND LOCAL PRICES OF COURSE!
