    It's horrible! You have to know which bus number to pick or ask a local. There is not a map with all the connections. Buses don't have a travel scheme, it's always a surprise. Bus transport is cheap though. R$ 1,60 for a single trip, no matter how long you stay in the bus. But make sure you have the right bus. Not many people speak English.....

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shops sells indian handcrafts work. The FUNAI is run by Brazilian Government. All profits go back to the indians. It's fair trade.

    You can buy masks, costumes, woodcraft, jewelry, pottery, etc. It's the best souvenir you can buy.

    What to buy: Buy souvenirs made by one of the many indian tribes of Mato Grosso. The shops sells plenty.

    What to pay: 1 - 100 USD, depending on what you want to buy. Most of the items are really cheap.

    Favorite thing: Cuiabá is the capital city from Mato Grosso - Brazil. Some 500,000 inhabitants live there.In Cuiabá it sometimes gets up to 42° Celsius in the summer, but the medium temperature there is 35° Celsius. So, my advice is that you bring soft clothes when visitting it.
