A lot of people go to Rio and assume the entire country is the same
Rรญo is one of the most dangerous cities in LATAM because of a variety of historical and geographical factors
Floripa has a completely different history, geography, and vibe
I'm in Sao Paulo now, I lived here for 4 years, and I know what I'm talking about.
Every my friend here had experience of being robbed or kidnapping, some stories ended up with death. Person from another country, especially European appearance has higher risk of being attacked.
Sao Paulo has crime rates comparable to Rio. How much time have you spent in Florianรณpolis?
There's a reason why all the nomad travel groups like Wifi Tribe/Hacker Paradise/Remote Year pick it, they cater to women travelers
Go to sao Miguel do Gostoso or Pipa for a safe vibe.
If you can't handle Floripa, I think probably all big cities in LATAM are off limits, it's safer than Cancun and that's chock full of rich drunk tourists to rob, you'd have to stick to resorts and small villages to be safer than that
There are safe places and be smart places. Rio is a be smart place, don't get drunk in the street, be aware of your surroundings and don't walk out at night and you will love it. Most of my nomad friends doing this for a long time love Rio, as they love Buenos Aires and Mexico City, once you know your way around it's quite ok.
Huh, apparently the population is only 500k, pretty itty-bitty for a city, I bet that's a factor in the low crime rates
Likewise are folks in Sรฃo Paulo up for a churrascaria tomorrow/next week?
Yes! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Folks! Is Sao Paulo cold or chill in the morning and night? Especially in the house. Because I feel cold very easily ๐Ÿ˜…
I usually check on|
obviously varies, but during winter could be around 10 degrees celcius
Always is necessary to be aware, Brazil is a nice country but not the safest one . Iโ€™m talking basically about theft on streets. But go for it! just take care
Thanks guys! I am going to stay in SP only for May. Is it still considered winter?
Still autumn, hereโ€™s how the weather is right now
Of course Brazil is dangerous compared to Europe. Is that really news to anyone? Yeah some cities like Floripa are pretty safe overall but those are exceptions.
I'd say a foreigner _needs_ to be a little adventurous to nomad in Brazil. If you're super worried about safety, then just don't come. Go somewhere else that's safer. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

I'm South African and Joburg has the highest crime rate in the world I believe or it did at one point with every x seconds someone being murdered or raped but I'm from north of Durban and don't feel at all scared or in danger in fact the only time I been robbed upfront is in Barcelona rolling_on_the_floor_laughingrolling_on_the_floor_laughing so every country has better areas and other areas where perhaps you should not go alone - even America and London - my brother was stabbed in London
When is the best time of year to be in Brazil in terms of weather etc and what are you guys actually paying currently for rent and COst of living I find sometimes the estimates on the website for nomadlist are not a true reflection of what I end up spending ๐Ÿ˜
It's a large country so that answer varies a lot per region, in general the more touristy areas have sufficiently good weather year long, summer holidays (december-january) are some of the most popular times, plus carnival in February/march
Thanks so much where is your favorite spot or location tk be based from ?
I'm a Brazilian native from Belo Horizonte, so that's where I spend 95% of my time when I go but that's because of family
Belo Horizonte itself isn't the most known touristy spot, but it's a nice big city with quite affordable COL

Otherwise I like Sรฃo Paulo for the big city vibes or Rio for city + beaches, they are good starting points for a first timer, Florianรณpolis is also a popular spot but I'm not a big fan

If you just want to go to the beach I haven't been in a while but Fortaleza is probably a good pick for a first timer, I do get bored at beach towns so I probably wouldn't spend too much time there or in smaller towns
Thanks so much will keep it all in mind I have been traveling solo for almost thirty years - so I love people cultures and can kind of entertain myself where ever but am an outdoors person and live the beach ๐Ÿ– but not at the cost fast fiber wifi ๐Ÿ˜‰
๐Ÿ›ฌ ftfobirbjanxw just arrived in ๐Ÿ‘™ Rio de Janeiro, #brazil
Olรก. Anyone interested in checking out the carnival in Rio together these days? Also open for other tourist stuff :)
I'm from a small surf city in the coast of sao paulo (ubatuba). I'd recommend to avoid spring (sept-nov) because it rains a lot. Summer (dec-mar) is crazy busy/expensive but very fun/lively. fall is my favorite time (good weather, less tourists, best surfing). Winter is good, a little colder and beautiful days.

Northeast area is better during spring, but has a rainy fall.

I'd recommend to check the kitesurfing locations. They are always in cool /small towns, safe and with good infrastructure for travelers. Later this year, I will spend a couple of months in the Prea/Jericoacoara area. Kinda Affordable, very fun, with delicious food.

Can't go wrong with Floripa if you're outdoorsy but weather is complicated sometimes. When I was there recently it was raining a lot. Conversely in the driest months it can get kind of chilly...

Anyone in Ipanama or Copacabana in Rio and up for coffee/drink..,?
Anyone have been to Pipa? or Gostoso? Looking for feedback.
Go ahead! Both are amazing places but could be more expensive than others places in Brazil, mainly for tourists. It is important to notice that nor everyone speaks english there.
I am a little lucky, I am Portuguese :slightly_smiling_face:
What other beach villages would you recommend around Brazil?
need to change that ahahah

Has anyone used Uber to get to GIG airport in Rio very early in morning around 5am? Wondering how long it takes to get an Uber at that time from Copacabanaโ€ฆ. If anyone has any experience with this let me knowโ€ฆthanks!
just preorder the evening before. And factor in an extra 30 minutes in case the driver misses the highway exit and has to do a detour of 50km ๐Ÿ˜„

Hey guys, do you know any DN meet up groups / drinks / events in Rio?
Hey people here!
Do you know if itโ€™s possible to get the third vaccin shot in brazil ? for stranger (Iโ€™m french)
Yes, you should able to just show up at a vaccination center and get a shot. But I don't know if you will manage to add that record to your French vaccination certificate.
Thanks, I actually get the first in us, the second in Costa Rica

Iโ€™m researching the entry requirements for US citizens. Iโ€™m currently in Argentina, and am wondering if I need a yellow fever vaccine to enter Brazil. Also, do I need to apply for a tourist visa?
You probably do need a tourist visa. I don't know about the vaccine tho
I am a US citizen who came into Brazil from Argentina, and I didn't need yellow fever vaccine or apply for a tourist visa. However Argentina Airlines made me buy a return ticket even though its not needed for US Citizens. According to them I needed a return ticket or a visa but don't think that's correct
Hey folks! My name is Joรฃo and Iโ€™m originally from Brazil, although Iโ€™ve lived in Canada for most of my life. In September I will be going to Brazil for a period of around 6 months. During that time, Iโ€™m planning on establishing a home base in Sรฃo Paulo.

With that being said, can anyone recommend good options for short term furnished rentals in Sรฃo Paulo / Brazil? AirBnb is always an option, but maybe thereโ€™s some well kept secret that this community might know about. Open to any information or suggestion

Thanks in advance!
