Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean SOLO TRAVELLER ARRIVING IN BRAZIL IN APRIL 2011

1. Posted by TEAMNORRIS (Budding Member 5 posts) 6y


So I'm arriving in Brazil in April (Rio), and then planning to spend a few months travelling around South America. I was supposed to be travelling with a friend who has now decided to do their own trip to New Zealand.

Is there anyone out there who will also be in Rio around mid April and would like to do some travelling together?

Also is there any advice out there for solo travellers?

Thanks x

Hi team(solo)norris!

I'm also going solo in South America soon.. exciiteeed!
I'll be arriving in Rio approximately on the 12th of May after finishing a couple of days in Buenos Aires and the trip up north to Rio. - Landing in Buenos Aires on may 2nd.

So.. how long would you be staying in Rio and where are you planning to go afterwards? And for how long?
I'm planning to move on west to Iguazu and maybe further on to Machu Picchu..

It would be fun to catch up and maybe co-op, have a beer or two..

Hey, the plan is to travel to Rio and stay there for a couple of weeks, I'll be arriving on the 15th April. I was then going to move south to Sao Paulo. I was also planning to go to Iguacu after that. How do you think that fits with you?

not bad I think.. hmm.. perhaps I'll be arriving a couple of days earlier than otherwise expected. Perhaps near the 25th of april. - Also.. I haven't quite decided whether or not I'll fly to Rio or Buenos Aires to move south or north.

anyhow.. I'll send you a mail Becks!

I reach Rio on 21st, plan to stay there for a week/10 days and head up north to Manaus. Tempted to go down south to Iguacu and maybe even to BA. But I have heard it is pretty touristic. Have always dreamt of taking the boat through the Amazon - need to perfect my portuguese before I become that adventurous! Anyhow, I will ping you folks and exchange contact details. If you are around, would be great to catch up!
