Hi,
My husband and I will be travelling to Brazil in December (is December the worst time to visit?) with our 2 year old son. My questions are:

1. What part of Brazil should we stay?
2. What recommenations do you have on accommodations?

We're looking for a quiet small place . Also, we like a bungalow or some kind of interesting small place to stay. Not a large hotel or noisy. But, also we will have a 2 year old with us. Modest price range...would like to pay $100 per night or under.

I normally go with bigger and more established websites like travelocity, expedia etc. I've had great results with them, but haven't tried anything smaller.

How did you come across the website that you're using and do you know anyone who has used it? I've never heard it mentioned before, certainly not for South America.

Hi there,
I lived in Brasil in '98 and returned in 2001. I still know people over there, and it seems not much has changed.
1. Places to go - Foz de Iguacu may not be as great as it would be in winter.
Rio - is very nice, but Ilha Grande, which is out from Rio (Angra Dos Reis) is an absolutely beautiful island. It has one car - the errands car, small villages, beautiful beaches, relaxed atmosphere, and the most beautiful, rainforest filled island to walk over. It is one of my favourite places.
The Northeast is also a great place - places like Fortaleza, Maceio, Porto Seguro, Natal - all have the culture and great beaches.
I also stayed in Florianopolis one year for new years eve, fantastic! There are great beaches around here, boat trips, and slightly cooler.
If you want something other than beaches there is always the Amazon or Pantanal, however not sure what Pantanal is like in December.

2. Sorry, I can't help you here - we found them while there or stayed in houses with a lot of people.

Have a great time!
