Thanks

Yes

Re: buses

i don't know what "cheap" is to you but be warned.... it's a LONG bus ride. i went from buenos aires to florianopolis, about 13 hrs (by car) from rio and it took 36 long hours. so i would plan on a 50 hr bus ride. that's two days. in a bus. with strangers. and no shower. but i'm not sure what you're used to. they do have some pretty good buffet food at the stops though.

just go to the bus station and you will see all the companies selling tickets. you can get one and be on a bus within an hr or two, in my experience.

Gol airlines will fly you to Rio from Buenos Aires for about US$275.00. I'm not sure if that includes taxes. The bus trip will cost US128.00. All things considered, the flight seems like a bargain. I think that Rio is over priced and over rated. Save your money.

jerry, i would TOTALLY buy a flight if i had to do it over. think, it's just $100 dollar difference vs. 50 hrs in a bus. i would just buck up and pay for the flight and if you have to cut costs in other areas, stay in a hostel or cut one meal out a day. anything is better than spending that much time on a bus unless you're on a 7 month trek through india or something. haahaha

Don't know whether you are traveling on a Canadian,US or Australia passport, but if you fly into Buenos Aires, you will pay a hefty reciprocity tax at Customs and Immigration, for US citizens it's $140.00 the fee was just raised this month, and for Canadians $70.00, and Austrailia $100.00 land crossings at border points may not have implemented this fee yet, you should check the Argentine Govt website for further information.

doesn't matter about the taxes. Yes, EZE asks these nationals to pay a hefty sum (as I am) but they did inform me that going via the foz i'd have to pay a certain fee anyway (since its a reciprocal visa fee). rio to buenos aires by bus? Don't even think about it, buddy. the money will work out to be around the same in the end. from Rio to Curitiba its a 13 hour bus ride; from curitiba to Buenos Aires it is around 30 hours. Rio to Ctba: 130R if you get lucky (one way), then Ctba to BsA i know its around 180R one way. so why bother? Fly.

enjoy your trip!

Travel Tips for Rio de Janeiro

MONKEYS OF CHRIST

by RafaelTheSecond

Sometimes (not always) it is possible to see these cheerful monkeys in the area of The Christ, they are curious and they are not afraid of people! Everytime I go to the Christ I had some funny surprises, and that is the only one time I have ever seen them on the top of the hill, and this hill is called Corcovado!

Walking along Avenida Atlantica

by jgacis

The well known Atlantic Ave. sidewalk gives the visitor more views than just the beaches, restaurants, and vendors. During carnival, this party (pagode style) featured the little locals dancing to samba,axe, and commercial music. The costumes reflect that of carnival and traditional african influence. An MC (master of ceremony) enticed the crowd to show support for the show stars!! So don't hesitate to walk around, there is always something to see and do in Rio!!

Cariocas

by wrldtravler

Be in Shape.. Start Working out . it will Pay Off - trust me. The first few days we were there (Jan) we were all sweating like pigs. I mean just sitting on the beach doing Nothing we were sweating, but come day three and all us guys were lean and cut-up. The weather is just perfect, it doesn't allow any fat on your body.

Agua de coco and other beach essentials

by realde14

Copacapana, Ipanema are filled with kiosques where they sell coconut water. Apart from being very nutritious and healthy, this is a great beverage to cool down after a hot day on the beach (or after a hangover). Other great drinks for the beach are limao with mate (tea) or beer (of course, caipirinha)

Language

by Alless

Portuguese is Brazil’s official language. Although English is the most popular second language studied, you’ll be hard-pressed to find it spoken by cariocas, as Rio natives are known. But Brazil’s economy is increasingly open to foreign trade, especially from the U.S., and this means a growing number of the country’s business people are becoming bilingual. Most major tourist hotels and restaurants have some bilingual staff, as do exchange houses and banks. Unless you request cabdrivers with knowledge of English, don’t expect them to know even the basics.
