Depends where in Brazil
In SP in safe areas no issues for example
Oh that would be great I liked the sound of SP. I don't mind if I have to stick to certain areas, it's being a little bit on edge all the time that would put me off. Is that about it?

Thanks for the reply.

the crime rating in nomadlist is wrong. there it shows that all states are equals, but that is not true
always look for tourist places and with lots of people. avoid going out at night to strange places.
Don't be flashy, stay in the right areas, use common sense - You'll be fine. Enjoy Brazil, it's amazing ๐Ÿ˜Ž
Fully confirming what the others are saying โ€“ youโ€™ll be fine, just take it easy for the first few days until you feel more comfortable. Hold on tight to your phone to avoid snatching. Other than that, you can enjoy the amazing country.
Itโ€™s a be smart place and donโ€™t show signs of richness
I was in Brazil for 7 months, traveled all over, it was pretty obvious when an area was unsafe, you didn't really need a local to tell you
You can easily avoid ever being in those areas on foot if you have money for taxis and accommodation in nice neighborhoods
This is all good news! Thanks guys, booking Sao Paolo ASAP.
It's obviously not the safest country in the world, but you can still embrace the unavoidable risks, take care of yourself and have a good time โ˜€๏ธ ๐ŸŒด
lxpymjffcqwxnu U03AUBCUBbr />Just called the bowling center. They told me we donยดt have to reserve a bowling alley. Just have to come there...so 7pm MeetUp on thursday 30.12 is fix nowย slightly_smiling_face
sounds good
Hey guys, going to do a cowork tour in Rio de Janeiro, what is the best coworking space around Copacabana, Leblon and Ipanema? (beach life essentials ahah
Hey guys, does zap really works better for Brazil than Airbnb? I am wondering why it is suggested on the Saรต Paulo page on nomadlist
Only for long termโ€ฆ but I suggest Quinto Andar, much easier and less bureaucratic. You can do everything on the app
Quinto Andar minimum 12 months
Maybe wework and selina?
rm23d
OLX is pretty much the only alternative to Airbnb but it will be hard to navigate for foreigners (lots of scams, no guarantees, and most listings aren't great). I'd stick to Airbnb
If you are looking for anything less than 1year, stick with airbnb, booking and similars. We donโ€™t have good local alternatives for that length of time that airbnb and similar tackle.
Thanks!

For short period there's Housi and Wearecasai. They have amazing options
Their website are in English so everything will be easy
Casai .com / housi .com are their websites
(I can't post links)
I was trying to find others more โ€œlocalโ€, I am actually staying at Selina ahaha but love to support good local coworking spaces
tctkdjkqrrjyh in the nomade digitais Rio website (can't post the link, the app won't let me) there is a Cowork tab and if you scroll down you'll find some "independent" options, even one in Gigoia if you want a bit of a getaway experience inside the city
Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ That is it!

Is Rio carnival cancelled?
Yes
No. They are still deciding
Sao paulo Carnaval was canceled today
Street events are cancelled, parades are still on

The only times i went there it was on business trips, so i always stayed at hotels. If this helps, โ€œIbis Budgetโ€ is a very good choice. very affordable and have good accommodations.

hey all! any co-living options/recommendations in Sao Paulo?
Anything 5-10 minutes walking from "Parcรฃo" is the best area in Porto Alegre, neighborhood is "Moinhos de Ventos".
I've never been there, but I heard from people that this Selina is a nice coliving option, and actually there is one in Sรฃo Paulo called, "Selina Madalena Sao Paulo".
Unfortunately I cannot post the link since I am new here.
Thank you! Not a fan of Selinas but thank you anyway. Looking for more of a house with a smaller group. Coliving homes, not hostels. They're becoming more common now so I wanted to see if anyone has had any good experiences in Sao Paulo ๐Ÿ˜

odfvyminunik thoughts on Cidade Baixa vs Moinhos de Ventos?
Hey, there's a few options Kasa and Yuca are pretty popular and affordable. But they have a three months minimum stay, which may not work for you.
thank you! appreciate the info! i will save that for future reference!
๐Ÿ›ฌ ffpcfczahubnkec just arrived in ๐Ÿ’ƒ Sรฃo Paulo, #brazil
Hey ihqghtscx - why arenโ€™t you a fan of Selinas? I was just looking into using them so Iโ€™m curious
lras time ago Cidade Baixa was famous neighborhood in the city because it was a great option for young people and students. It had several cafes, bars, etc. But now is completely diferent!

Moinhos de Ventos, close to "Rua Padre Chagas". That's where you wanna be in Porto Alegre.
Im in Salvador right now, if anyone wants to cowork!
I agree with reuzlndwd they feel very commercial

Nice, thanks for the info!
Hey guys! I'm for the first time in Rio, arrived a few weeks ago. If anyone wants to meet up for a walk or for drink, let me know. I'd be glad to meet new people ๐Ÿ™‚
Can you post it for me too?! Hoping to come later this year and that sounds great ๐Ÿ‘
Thank you!

Enjoy the island !
thanks Uriel. hope to catch up with you in SP +1skin-tone-3
anybody feel like getting together for a drink in Floripa? ๐Ÿน
is there anywhere in Brazil itโ€™s going ahead as normal?
Hey Vasily, welcome to the island.
I live here in Floripa, and I'm spending the summer here for some weeks, before go back traveling again.
Would be nice to catch up for some drinks
Was Carnaval just rescheduled for April?
Yes... the official parade is now scheduled for April.
Are people really gonna wait for April or are a lot of festivities happening on the original date?
Seems like a super catholic country might not totally respect the government changing a week that was set by the bible or pope or whatever
Iโ€™m just thinking it would be hard for the US to reschedule Christmas, but maybe this isnโ€™t really analogous
Hey tmgozzjgxoswtj
Nice to see you here too
For your info, so the official carnival parades will be postponed to April, because they are also supported by the government.

Carnival nowadays is not too much religious here in Brazil, is more about the party and culture.
The holiday is not mandatory as well, some cities or companies decide to continue working normally during carnival.

What I think that will happen is maybe some private parties are going to happen, small or maybe secret ones. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

By the way, let me know when are you planning coming to Brazil.
Are things generally open in Floripa right now? Considering heading down in February cc xvnylrps
