Sao Paulo AirportFinding cheap airfare to Brazil depends greatly on flying during the low season, which typically means from February to May, and later in the year from August to November. Tourists from the United States, Canada, and Europe can often find bargain fares during these times, especially when flying from major hubs, and buying last minute.

=> Flights from Australia and New Zealand are typically quite a bit more expensive.

You will most likely be flying into Sao Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport, the hub of TAM, or Rio de Janeiro-Galeao International Airport, the hub of Gol. For Americans the best rates will be found flying from New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Miami, while Canadians will find most the best prices out of Toronto. Most major European national airlines also offer daily or weekly flights to the two principal Brazilian airports.

Santa Elena Border Crossing

You can enter Brazil from Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina, and Uruguay. Paraguay, Argentina, and Uruguay are the easiest and most popular border crossings, although particular caution should be taken in Parguay's Ciudad del Este due to smuggling and other criminal activities.
..........................................................................................................................................

While transportation to Brazil is closely integrated with its neighbors Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay, direct buses are also available from other South American capitals, including La Paz, Lima, and Santiago. Make sure to do thorough research beforehand, however, regarding sleeping conditions, food, and number of hours of travel. Such a trip is only for a seasoned (and very patient) bus traveler.

=> It is possible to cross the border from Leticia, in Colombia, to Tabatinga, in Brazil. You do not need to pass through customs or immigration, but only if you are spending a day in Brazil. Travel further down river on the Amazon requires stamps in your passport and/or a tourist visa.
