Brazil Holidays,  Brazil Holiday Packages Overview

A large proportion of Brazil's huge population should have good reason to be unhappy about their lot in life. Yet, the long-lasting impression one has of this magical country is of carefree, colourful people dancing and celebrating in the street parades at Carnaval. It is this passion for life and exuberance of spirit that charms visitors from around the world. Tourists descending on the country's fabulous cities, such as hedonistic Rio de Janiero, can enjoy the five-star hotels, shopping malls, beautiful beaches, sunny skies and inspirational restaurants without really having to confront the hundreds of shanty towns (favelas) where the poorest of the poor eke out a living in the shadows of the skyscrapers.


Brazil could have been an incredibly wealthy country, but institutionalised corruption and mismanagement of agricultural and natural resources are two of the main reasons why prosperity has been denied to the mass of the people. Despite this, life for most Brazilians is a sensuous adventure and visitors inevitably will get caught up in the rhythm of its samba.


Being so vast, larger than continental United States, Brazil offers a variety of cultures and topographies. The range is evident in the contrast of the Amazon rain forest to the mountain towns of Minas Gerais, the urban jungle of Sao Paulo and the vast central plateau around Brasilia and the world-famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. It all adds up to an exotic and exciting Latin American mix where the common denominators are samba, sunshine, sultry smiles and soccer.

Brazil Holidays - Currency of Brazil


The Brazilian monetary unit is the real (BRL), plural reais. There are 100 centavos to the real and notes come in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 50 and BRL100. The US dollar is also welcome in most tourist establishments. In the main cities foreign currencies and travellers cheques can be exchanged at banks or cambios. There is an extensive network of ATMs in the country and most major international credit cards are accepted.


Brazil Telephone Access Codes and Communications


The international access code for Brazil is +55. The outgoing code depends on what network is used (e.g. 0014 for Brasil Telecom), which is followed by the relevant country code (e.g. 001444 for the United Kingdom). The area code for Brasilia is 61, but the access code to make a call within the country from another area also depends on what network is used (e.g. (014)61 for Brasil Telecom). GSM 900and 1800 mobile phone networks cover the main cities, and phones are available to rent. Internet cafes are widely available. Every town has a central telephone office called a Posto Telefonico, from where long distance calls can be made, and public phone booths are everywhere, operated by phone cards. For cheaper calls, visitors can connect to an operator at home and place a credit card or collect call. Sending mail overseas is expensive, but the postal system is generally reliable and airmail usually takes up to a week.


Brazil Duty Free Allowances & Restrictions


Travellers to Brazil can enter the country with goods to the value of US$500 without incurring customs duty. These include 400 cigarettes or 25 cigars, and 2 litres of alcoholic beverages. Restricted items include fresh produce and plant and animal products. Strict regulations apply to temporary import or export of firearms, antiquities, tropical plants, medication and business equipment.


Brazil Holidays & Packages- Tipping Information


Nearly all hotels add a service charge to the bill, usually 10%. Most restaurants also add 10% or more to the total of the bill, but must make it clear that they have done so; waiters appreciate another 5% if their service has been good. Brazilians don't normally tip taxi drivers, except if they handle bags, although they may round up the total. Hotel staff expect small tips and most services expect 10-15%.
