    What do travelers think about Parana,Brazil?

    For a Brazilian perspective I don't see much to do there, but is a very organized State and Curitiba (the capital) is a city with high quality of development. Curitiba got famous around the world by the implementation of a successful Public Administration, where they focus in transportation around the city and recycling. A documentary was made about the city, and is called "A Convenient Truth: Urban Solutions from Curitiba, Brazil ".

    Backpacking in brazil during jan

    Hi Datla, My time to be a backpacker is over, but you should start your trip in São Paulo, where you can see the "capital" of Latin America. This incredible city received influence from all over the world. From São Paulo, take a bus to Parati (Rio State) and enjoy one of the greatness tows in Rio State. From there go Rio de Janeiro - (city of Rio, because the State is also called Rio de Janeiro). In Rio a good place for you to stay is Mellow Yellow - http://mellowyellow.com.br/ - Everybody speaks English there and is close to everything, the only thing I don't like there is because you will share a room, a bathroom, etc....and they are too loud (as you can see I'm getting old!), but is backpacking that you are looking at right? - South of Brazil is nice...to Brazilians. If you want a REAL Brazilian experience with diversity keep going NORTH. Bahia, Recife, Natal are the places to go. Be careful after 6 pm in the big cities and avoid flashing money, a nice camera. Just use common sense and you will be fine! Enjoy your trip, respect the locals and have a great time mate. almost 7 years ago

    what is the cost to purchase a temporary phone for use in brazil

    Hi Iris, The best way is to buy a prepaid phone with enough credit for you to use. If you have a Brazilian friend on the city that you are visiting he can help you to get a SIM card. Good luck! almost 7 years ago

    Is it hard to get a job in Brazil? (Rio, Sao Paulo)

    Hi Ryan, I'm from São Paulo. The easiest way to you to get a work visa and move to Brazil is to be a ESL teacher. I think you can get a 6 months preparatory class in Ottawa (at least is this way in USA) and a certification. You won't find a job over the Internet, except if you decide to be a ESL teacher - (Brazil needs lots of English teacher because the Word Cup and Olympics). In the mean time, take some Portuguese classes and enroll for the Ottawa Portuguese Meetup group - http://www.meetup.com/lusophilesinottawa/ (I'm a Portuguese meet organizer myself, but in San Francisco). That more Portuguese you will know the easy will be for you to get a job in Brazil. Good luck! over 7 years ago
