Brasilia, Brazil


Brazil is in the route of most international airlines and Brazilian airports have invested heavily in improving their infrastructure, providing greater accessibility and comfort to tourists. There are over 2,000 airports in Brazil, the second largest number in the world, after the United States.
São Paulo‑Guarulhos International Airport (GRU), near São Paulo, is the largest and busiest airport, handling the vast majority of air traffic of the country and connecting the city with virtually all major cities across the world. Followed by Rio de Janeiro (GIG) Airport.
For Mercosur citizens (a trading block composed of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Venezuela, with associate members Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru), traveling to Brazil is even easier because a valid passport or an identification document is sufficient.

By Inter‑City Coaches, long‑distance travel is a convenient, economical, and sometimes, rather comfortable way to travel between regions.Buses are operated by hundreds of private companies; however rates are standardized and quite reasonable for someone on a budget. Luxury buses run overnight between major cities and offer fully reclining seats. Within cities, there are lots of city buses with low fares.


Taxis can be hailed on the streets or booked in advance. Fares are low. All taxis are metered and you should check to make sure the driver switches on the meter when you get in. Tipping taxi drivers is not common in Brazil, although it is common to round off the amount.
