In fact, our banking system is very good. The main issue is that the country is huge and we don't have signal coverage in most remote areas like you'll find in the north/northest coast of Brazil. On these places, you'll probably need some "Reais" to make payments, however, if you have phone coverage, be sure that you'll find debit/credit payment including for international cards.
Very well said. I'm brazilian, live in Rio de Janeiro and never was stolen here or outside Brazil. A friend of mine, living in Rio de Janeiro, never had a problem here too. The first time he was stolen was in Miami
normally all pharmacies have rapid tests. And there are also pharmacies at the airport. Check maybe on Google maps for opening hours.caps wrote: ↑Mon Jul 19, 2021 8:16 pmThanks for the reply Toby. We are downwinding to Atins and returning to Fortaleza via Sao Luis airport. We need to find a rapid Antigen (American Airlines) test ideally at the Sao Luis airport or prior to our international flight out of Fortaleza. Are there testing sites at Sao Luis or Fortaleza airports? Are there many foreign tourists going to Brazil? I figured by now that there'd be a fair number of testing options at or near airports to support testing within 72 hours of flights for vaccinated tourists.

You definitely need someone with you that speaks Portuguese. If you do, then no guide needed IMO.
we had a little medical emergency (abdominal influenza) on our trip and no one at the local hospital spoke a word of English.
I recommend renting a small truck (i.e. Amarok) with 4x4.
