Its still 3.5 years away, but I want know what I might encounter if I make it to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup?
Considering its huge size and the unique challenges the country offers to visitors, what should I be prepared for. What is going to be important to know before I go?
The biggest issue is the distance, you can either fly, which is expensive or the alternative is buses - with some trips up to 36 hours...and they are not fun. Another issue (potentially) is language - especially in smaller places, but even in Rio, Sao Paulo etc - very few people speak English, apart from top level hotels. Spanish is understood in some places.
Also - depending on whether you travel to the Amazon or not, some innoculations are usually recommended. Most people will need a visa to enter the country also.
Having said all that, the power of football in Brazil is like nowhere else in the world, their team are like gods and watching football at the Maracana Stadium (once they spruce it up a bit), will be fantastic

hi - this is difficult to answer, as it depends on what you want to do in Lima. TACA flies to Lima from Cuzco for about USD $70 return, so that's best option to get there. Depending on where you stay, hotels prices can range from budget to luxury. almost 9 years ago
