To foreign tourists, that is. (If you speak Portuguese it just might be terrific.)
People ask me my favourite countries. Usually I reply by saying China is over-priced and too much hassle for the western tourist.
I’d say the same about Brazil.
Most signage is in Portuguese only. Even museums.
Distances are vast. Traveling the Amazon or moving around the Pantanal wetlands is tricky.
It’s not easy to travel … anywhere. Buying a long distance bus ticket is more complicated than any other nation I know.
Internal flights that cost Brazilians $75 can cost the tourist well over $400.

On the bright side, over 3 weeks I saw very few mosquitoes. And found the streets quite clean.
