OK.If you have a Turkish passport - you need a visa - i will confirm this in my next post in few mnts.
Flights are going to SAO PAULO GUARULHOS AIRPORT through Frankfurt or Paris arvg early am or Rio De Janeiro through Paris arvg same time every day

i understand you will prefer to visit RDJ, instead of Sao Paulo which is just a huge city.Exempt if you go for business in which case you hv to choose SAO PAULO.

Try to book a hotel (even more expensive) in sea side (Copa Campana area ) Taxi are safe but do not make long walk alone during night time and avoide to ware expensive watch or other valuable items.

locals are nice and you can easily find fun places-prefer our winter period for the trip and expect frequent rain and huminity (RDJ IS NOT SO BAD -SP IS TERRABLE ABOUT HUMINITY)

If you are married try to leave your wife at home in Turkey or Cyprus-i do no know from where you are

About Chile i do not have so much to say- i m doing business down there but i hv never been in this country

Thanks. Turkish passports holders do not need visas for Latin America. I'll be in Sao Paulo and Santiago. SP seems to be dangerous.

I can describe this city with only one word "chaos"

if you know any local there (SP) ask him to take you to neibourhoot cofee shop where Saturdays/Sundays have Chikken bq -unforgetable- and big surprise!!! in SP and generally in Brazil you can find cube (koupa) the known Turkish one.

If you're going all that way try and see as much as you can. My missus has been to Chile and raved about it and we both went to Ecuador which was excellent although the air is thin in Quito. A volcano exploded while we were there and we just got out before the military coup. Saw loads including a Spanish colonial mansion, meaning I could use my "hacienda that" joke as we were leaving. :)
