Pretty easy, you should go first to the city of Guaruja, take the ferry to city of Bertioga and just go ahead. It takes about 10-11 hours, but you should drive only by day. A nice place to sleep is Maresias. A beautiful beach and it is in the middle of the way. over 5 years ago
I am traveling Southeast Asia for 7 weeks. Would you suggest having some cash in the countries currency prior to arrival? If so, how much?
You don't need local currency prior the arrival at all... US Dollar or EURO are accepted everywhere and very easy to change. Don't change too much cash because some countries don't accept other currencies, for example, Mianmar only accept Dollars... over 5 years ago
