Brazilian cities are connected to a number of worldwide airports and most international flights arrive into Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro.

Most Nationalities do not need to apply for a tourist visa in advance of arrival and you can stay for up to 90 days.
Brazil has a warm climate, even in winter - July to September, the temperature is usually around 15-25 degrees. During summer - December to January you can expect the temperature to be well in the 30's. The North of the country is a lot warmer than the South and the weather can be unpredictable in places like Sao Paulo.

A reliable public transport system runs in Brazil but due to the size of the country durations can be long. Distance should never stop you from seeing the best of Brazil though, therefore, we suggest buying multiple flight tickets with one of the local airlines, or an air-pass if you have a set itinerary. Flights are frequent and can be relatively inexpensive if you choose right and book ahead. There is also a relatively cheap bus service which runs throughout the country and stops in most towns and cities. There are different levels of comfort depending on what your budget is.
