My wife and I are expats from the UK. We have been living in Brazil now for nearly 7 years. We bought a fruit farm outside of Saquarema (just east-north-east of Rio) about 5 years ago. My wife started a website and blog detailing life in Brazil for expat's. After the announcement that World Cup 2014 would be held in Brazil, and the final games in Rio, we watched with great interest as the hotels, pousadas, hostels, and now even favalas have raised their prices exponentially. A few months back, my wife put a small article on the website about camper vans etc. as an alternative.
When you can locate a camper van, the prices are even going up there. That is when we looked at each other and said "why don't we create a campsite on our property?" With that, we have created CampinBrazil. Please check out our website and email us with any questions - here
We wish you the very best with your travel, your accomodations, and having a wonderful time when visiting Brazil this year.
