Requirements to enter the country

To enter the country you will need a valid passport for at least six months from the date of entry. You will be permitted a tourist visa valid for up to 90 days which is obtained at the airport of your arrival. During the flight you will be handed an Arrival Card; a piece of paper that you receive upon arrival that must be filled in, authorizing your stay for a certain period. You must keep this document with you during your stay in Brazil as it must be handed in at customs on the day of your departure.

We advise you to contact the embassy of or consulate of your home country should you be in doubt about the requirements necessary to enter Brazil.

Local Currency

 The Brazilian currency is called Brazilian Real (R$) and we advise you to check the exchange rates when exchanging your money.

Food & Drinks

The Brazilian cuisine is richly varied thanks to the influence of both native and foreign cultures. The northeast coast of Brazil dedicates their livelihood to fishing which you will more than likely taste on your travels; grilled fish, cooked “a la moqueca” etc… The world famous “churrascos” (meat restaurants) offer different cuts of quality meats and should definitely be visited by the meat lovers.

 Finally, the fruits vary depending on the region but every breakfast offers a wide selection of fruits and juices according to the season.

Internet Connection & Plugs

Every pousada that we work with offers a high speed wifi connection. The plugs have a two pin and fit into a type N socket (same as plugs used in most of Europe).

Vaccines & Medicines

In this region of the northeast of Brazil one does not need to be vaccinated, but we would advise you to consult your doctor to inform yourself about vaccinations should you decide to visit other parts of Brazil during your stay.

At the same time we advise you to bring a small First Aid Kit for convenience as it can be very difficult to find medicine especially in the more rural locations.
