  • Fabulous location in Buenos Aires

    "My husband and I stayed in the loft for 10 days and loved it. We wanted to experience BA as if we were Argentinians, not tourists in a generic hotel downtown and were not disappointed. Las Canitas is a wonderful and safe neighborhood with dozens of great restaurants. Staying in Las Canitas gave us an idea of what how the Argentinians love to enjoy life, but was also close to all the sights we wanted to see. Plus, the loft was removed from the noise, so we slept well. The loft has everything you could possibly need from pots and dishes, to Wifi, TV (English channels, too), etc. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience the true BA."

  • Thoroughly Enjoyed

    "My wife and I spent about two weeks in the 4th floor apartment. Jay was very helpful in the lead-up to our trip, providing email advice on dealing with the Lima layover and the abrupt change in altitude. The apartment worked great for us. We wanted a home base from which to explore Cusco and the surrounding countryside. We walked over much of the city and up into the hills to the north. Never once felt threatened. (Taxis are also cheap and abundant.) The kitchen has a nice refrigerator and the basics with which to cook. A pretty conventional Supermercado is a few blocks away. If you want a real experience (and some delicious avocados, among other foodstuffs) visit the Mercado San Pedro early in the day. Yaqui is a gem. She provides a nice breakfast each morning at an agreed-on time and does a great job showing the guests through the local breakfast cuisine. Rut checked in on us at the beginning and about every other day to say hi, answer any questions, and arrange any tours we desired. The apartment is a great place by itself, but Jay, Yaqui, and Rut are what make it special. Highly recommended."

Brazil Travel Tips

Best Seasons to Visit Brazil Vacation Rentals

Brazil is the largest country in South America. A large portion of it sits within the tropics and enjoys a warm year-round tropical climate. The southern parts are more temperate and can get quite cold in the wintertime. The summer months are from October through May, and winter runs from June through September, although Rio de Janeiro and the Amazon regions rarely get cold. If you are planning a visit to either of these areas, you can choose your own travel season. If you don’t like crowds, you will want to avoid Rio de Janeiro during carnival time which occurs in February each year. Millions of people from around the world flock during this time to see the colorful parades and experience the festive vibe. If you want to explore the southern regions, the best season to travel is during the warmer summer months. You can hire a car to get around and enjoy exploring this lesser-known side of Brazil at leisure.

Getting to Brazil Lodging

The primary airport in Brazil is Garoulos International Airport in Sao Paolo. Most international airlines use this as their point of entry into Brazil and for this reason, it is the busiest airport in South America. From here, you can get connecting flights on to Rio de Janeiro, Brazilia, Manaus and various other destinations in Brazil and South America. There are daily scheduled flights that bring visitors from Europe, North America, South Africa and other South American countries. Be prepared to walk quite a distance from the aircraft through passport control and baggage claim. If you plan to stay in Sao Paolo then arrange for a private transfer from the airport or negotiate a set fare with the taxi driver. Sao Paolo is a city that never sleeps and traffic on the highway getting into the city is congested 24 hours a day. If you take a metered taxi, you may find that you have paid more than you bargained for unless you negotiate ahead of time.

Comfortable Accommodation at Brazil Villas

One of the things that may strike you as you arrive in cities such as Rio de Janeiro and Sao Poalo is the vast number of high-rise buildings. These two cities are among the most populous in the world with the vast number of people living in high-rise buildings. Many of the vacation homes are conveniently located in major tourist areas so visitors have easy access to the attractions. Unless you rent a penthouse suite, the apartments are generally quite compact. They are still functional and comfortably furnished. In general, they can accommodate between two and four adults. For those that have larger budgets, you can consider renting a villa which offers a far more spacious accommodation. Villas are generally available in the smaller towns and seaside resorts.

Rio De Janeiro Vacation Rentals

Rio de Janeiro is one of Brazil’s most popular travel destinations. The world-famous Copacabana Beach, Sugarloaf Mountain and the impressive statue of Christ the Redeemer are all well-known landmarks of the city. Located on the Tropic of Capricorn, Rio enjoys a warm tropical climate. This is one of the reasons it is such a popular vacation destination. Visitors can enjoy the beaches and city sights throughout the entire year. The most popular time to visit Rio is in February when the world-famous Carnival and street parade take place. As with most major cities, accommodations can be expensive. Vacation rentals make sense for people who plan to visit for more than just a few days. They offer more affordable accommodation options.
