SIM CARDS:  

With your passport on hand  and lots of patience you will come out with what is called  a "chip pré-pago", a top-up SIM card.  Cell phone stores are available everywhere.  Remember to specify what kind of services you would like. SMS, Data, local calls or long distance.  Remember your cell phone needs to be unlocked.


WATER:  Potable in most areas, but tastes awful, drink bottled water.


PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN BRAZIL: 

Taxi, Bus, Metro, UBER moves Rio De Janeiro and São Paulo


Taxis:  Easily found and affordable, if your not shy do not hold back from negotiating fixed fares or at least settle on an agreement before departing.  Taxis are metered in the city.

UBER moves Rio De Janeiro and São Paulo


Rio De Janeiro:

Bus:  Buses are the easiest and least expensive way to get around Rio, Rio has 831 public bus routes that go to just about all the points of the city.

Metro: The practical way to get around is by subway; in Centro and the Zona Sul it covers most areas of interest, with integrated bus/subway lines for the parts of the city where the Metrô has not yet reached. There are two lines: Line 1 goes north from downtown - it's useful for going to the Maracanã and the Quinta da Boa Vista -- while Line 2 begins at the Central Station and goes south, covering most of Centro, then swinging thorough Glória, Catete, Flamengo, and Botafogo before heading through the mountain to its final destination in Ipanema.   -LINK TO SUBWAY MAP-  -LINK TO HOME PAGE-


Brasilia:

From everything I have read, EVERYONE is suggesting to take a taxi as the public transport is really not efficient.


Coach Buses:

Travel Brazil

"From Atlanta to Washington DC to Rio de Janeiro and finally settling in Vitoria, Brazil.  For now.  In high school, I studied French.  In college, I studied Arabic.  In grad school, I studied political campaigns in India.  I considered a lot of life possibilities but living in Brazil, anywhere in South America, was never one of them.  Then I met and married the smartest man I’ve ever known, who happened to be from Brazil. You can read the full story here." -Brynn-

"This site is about Rio. What is it like to live here? What are the best things to do when you’re in town? Where should you eat and what are the culinary highlights? What do you need to know about Carnival?
Eat Rio is also about Brazil. How is Brazil changing? What is Brazilian music like? How hard is Brazilian Portuguese? What about Brazilian politics, history and culture?" -Eat Rio-

Eating Brazil

"I get it; when people think about coming over to Brazil they think about visiting the picture postcard cities of Rio, Florianopolis or Salvador…maybe they also want to check out the stunning Iguacu falls or the mysterious Amazon rainforest."
