Off to Brazil in 6 weeks for 3 months (will be arriving and staying in Rio for 3 weeks) and starting to panic about how much money i've got saved up! Can anyone who's been sort of give me a rough guide to how much i need - for partying, accommodation, food all those little extras.. and not living on a shoe-string budget! People say its 4reals=1 pound so my currency goes 4 times over there.. surely it can't be that cheap!?
I was in Brasil for two weeks, during Carnival. I did the hostel route, but I did splurge on the food, partying, tours, and the touristy stuff. I had about 1000USD; and that was fine. I was the one buying rounds!!
I am in Brazil and the currency real is R$2,4 per 1 US.
You can have a good meal for US 4 to 8, good place to stay around US$ 10 to 30.
You can save money in cheap place but I do not know your trip expectation.
The 4 star hotel is about US$ 100,00.
I think it can help you
