How to get around

The size of the country means that the best Brazil transport option is usually by air. There are a number of national carriers as well as low cost airlines to get you from A to B. If you’re visiting during Carnival (or Christmas, New Years) make sure you book well in advance!

If you’re on a budget and have a bit more time to spare the bus can be a good way to get around. But remember there are some mighty distances involved! Fortaleza to Rio de Janeiro for example is 44 hours away by bus.

The rail network in Brazil is a limited one, with 17, 500 miles of rail lines compared with over one million miles of roads. Hence don’t rely on rail to travel the country, but there are several scenic routes that are worth exploring.
