Brazil Hotels

It’s difficult to generalize the wide range of accommodation options you will find across a country as enormous as Brazil. One thing is for sure: whether you are a budget traveler or looking to spend some cash, Brazil has what you are looking for. From low-key backpacker hostels to high-rise hotels, Brazil has no shortage of rooms, but prices, quality, and ambiance fluctuate wildly.

The most expensive digs in Brazil are in touristy areas, such as in Rio de Janeiro and at luxury beach resorts along the coast. Still, backpackers will be able to find modest Brazil hostels at a budget price. When planning your trip, keep in mind the peak travel season for Brazil loosely follows the calendar for school holidays, with the summer season—December and January—being the busiest months. Carnival is also a time when prices skyrocket and hotels fill up, so make sure you book well in advance.

Brazil Hostels

Brazil hostels are becoming more and more common, and you can find them in just about any city across the country. Cute, cozy hotels such as the Open House Barra in Salvador da Bahia can be found just about anywhere throughout the country for a lot less cash than a stay at a Brazil hotel. Even in Rio de Janeiro, hostels rent beds for as low as $10 a night. If you don’t book in advance and are staying for longer than just a few days, you might even be able to negotiate a price once you get to the hostel.

Brazil Apartments and Houses for Rent

Another option, especially for those traveling in groups or staying for longer periods of time, is to rent out an apartment or house in Brazil. Although they are pricier than staying in hostels, when you do the math a stay at a Brazil apartment is usually cheaper than the cost of a hotel. You can also save money by cooking some meals at home in your own kitchen.

A Casa Azul in the remote beach town of Cabure is a prime example of everything you could ask for when renting out a house in Brazil. Not only will you find yourself with spacious rooms, but also a swimming pool, tropical garden, jacuzzi, sauna, and even squash court. Just a twenty minute walk to the historic center and beach, $260 a day seems like a steal—especially if you split it between nine people.

Brazil Budget Hotels

Probably a little more than just one step up of from a hostel in Brazil, budget hotels are popping up in cities large and small across the country. Depending on the season, rates usually start between $60-80, but you usually get what you pay for. Brazil budget hotels are similar to international chains found in the U.S., with the same dated furniture and floral-print throws over the bed. One tip: Before booking, make sure your hotel is in close proximity to the things you want to do in Brazil, or else you might get stuck paying hefty taxi fees to get to the town center or the beach.

Brazil bed and breakfasts, called pousadas, are a good option for those who want an upgrade from a hostel but don’t want to spend too much. Usually located on the outskirts of cities, Brazil B&Bs can be a mixed bag. Sometimes you are shown to cozy, charming quarters and served a fantastic breakfast, but other times the opposite is true. Try to book a B&B with good reviews online, and when in doubt ask to see your room before laying down any money.

Brazil Luxury Hotels

A night at any one of many Brazil luxury hotels will cost you upwards of $125—from there, the sky is pretty much the limit as far as price is concerned. Standard amenities in Brazil luxury hotels go well beyond tidy rooms, usually including in-house restaurants, impressively-designed pools and fitness centers, and excellent service. Luxury hotels in Brazil are also often set in prime beach locations, so shop around before settling on a room.

One example of a Brazil luxury hotel is the Sonesta Hotel in the trendy Moema area of Sao Paulo. The Sonesta Hotel also has its own restaurant with complimentary breakfast, a pool, sauna, and spa. Your room is your own private oasis, with comfortable beds, cable TV, complimentary internet, and even jacuzzi tubs.

Brazil Resorts

From beach-side retreats to jungle lodges, Brazil resorts have a lot to offer. The price tag can be steep for an all-inclusive retreat in an expensive town like Rio de Janeiro, but you can sometimes find two-for-one deals or other promotions in the off season.

There are also many small, exclusive jungle lodges set in the Amazon rainforest. There is even a whole list of “treehouse hotels” where you can stay in an eco-lodge nestled high in the rainforest canopy. Again, a jungle retreat can be pricey but its worth the price to have safe, insect-free accommodations and professional guides. Shop around (and ask around) when making plans to explore the Amazon, as prices and quality range.

Brazil Camping

Camping in Brazil is a great idea for those with an adventurous spirit or tight wallet. Brazil not only has a great climate for camping, but the facilities are similar to campsites in the U.S. and across Europe. The Camping Clube do Brasil operates around 48 sites in 14 states across Brazil. Camping here is a great deal for those with an International Campers Card—you get half off at each facility. It is not recommended to camp alone or outside of officially designated areas in Brazil, especially since a lot of the country is unexplored and wild.
