How do I get Around Brazil?
In some areas of Brazil, air travel is more common than road or water travel. Most towns have an airstrip while all larger cities have airports. This means that airports are often crowded with long lines to check in. There are very few passenger trains in Brazil and those that do exist are slower and have less convenient schedules than bus transportation. This is because the bus system in Brazil is excellent. Although there are many bus transportation companies, fares are standardized which makes them less costly than some air transportation. It is possible to rent a car in Brazil but the roads there can be dangerous. Road quality varies depending on where in the country you are staying. It is also possible to use taxi services if you are staying in one of the larger cities.
