Brazilian Visa Requirements to Visit Marajó Island

February 24th, 2011
The New York Times' Frugal Traveler column is a great place to get inspiration for international vacations that won't break the bank. Recently, the Frugal Traveler visited Brazil, recommending Marajó Island. It definitely sounds like an awesome trip-read the description and see if you don't find yourself wanting to book a ticket: "While the morning away on the smooth sands of a virtually empty, mangrove-studded beach. Wander all afternoon through gorgeous wetlands, spying on sloths, scarlet ibises and capybaras (the world’s largest rodent). Dine in the evening on tender filet mignon of locally raised water buffalo covered in water buffalo mozzarella and wash it down with pitchers of icy mangaba juice." Sounds awesome, right? But you can't just book a ticket, unfortunately. This is Br


2011 Destinations: Get a Brazilian Visa to Visit Rio De Janeiro

January 9th, 2011
Rio De Janeiro is another destination that's been on the lips of travel experts as they look toward 2011. Rio is set to host the 2014 World Cup and the Summer Olympics in 2016, and Frommer's claims that the city has already started putting on the ritz: "Although hardly a secret destination, Rio de Janeiro is shedding its image as a sun, sea and samba town and going for glamour and sophistication." Meanwhile, AOL named Rio as one of its "Best Beach Destinations of 2011," saying "if the impending World Cup and Olympic excitement are any clue, Rio is set to take the world by storm." AOL recommends that you duck the crowds at Copacabana and head to quieter, more upscale Leblon instead. No matter how you're planning to spend your time in Rio, you'll need a Brazilian visa. Even as Rio pr


Get a Brazil Visa to See the Oldest Rock Art in South America

December 26th, 2010
This week's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of Brazil's most significant archaeological treasures. Serra da Capivara National Park is home to numerous examples of amazing rock art that dates back to the Ice Age. In fact, one rock shelter has some paintings that date back to 26,000-22,000 BC, making it the oldest known rock art in South America. At over 25,000 years of age, some of the rock art in Serra de Capivara makes the famous cave paintings in Lascaux, France (painted "only" 17,300 years ago) look like modern art. Serra da Capivara's main draw may be the rock art, but it's also notable for its unique plant and animal life. Some species are not found anywhere else outside of the park boundaries. UNESCO granted World Heritage status to the park in 1991, calling it an "


Visit Brasilia with a Brazilian Visa

November 27th, 2010
Brasilia, the capital of Brazil and today's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an interesting city that's definitely worth a visit, especially if you have an interest in architecture. Brazil has had 3 different capitals since the country was settled by Europeans: Salvador, Rio de Janeiro and finally Brasilia. Brasilia was constructed in the center of the country with the express purpose of becoming a new, modern capital for the country and encouraging settlement of Brazil's interior. Inspired by the urban planning philosophy of French architect Le Corbusier, Brasilia was designed by its architects, Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa, to be an idyllic metropolis where traffic would flow so smoothly that traffic lights would be unnecessary. Of course, as Robert Burns once famously wro


Brazilian Visa Requirements to Visit the Discovery Coast Atlantic Forest Reserves

November 14th, 2010
Brazil is an amazing country. There are so many unique places to visit, it's almost impossible to narrow it down to a specific destination. This week, we're taking another look at Brazil as part of our UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Week series. This week's featured World Heritage Site is the Discovery Coast Atlantic Forest Reserves. The Atlantic Forest was once an enormous forest that blanketed the entire Atlantic coast of Brazil, extending inland even into Paraguay. However, it has been extensively logged and burned to provide land for agricultural use such as sugar cane farming. Now, the once-great forest has shrunk to just a few pockets, providing shelter to primate species like the marmoset , the lion tamarin and the woolly spider monkey. Other residents include the maned sloth
