How to Travel Brazil Cheap by Plane: 15 Cities for Under $900 in One Trip

Brazil is the largest country in South America and the 5th largest country in the world by land area.  It is an extraordinary country with beautiful people that’s rich in cultures, colors, flavors, languages, and customs.  Much of the Amazon Rainforest, the largest tropical rain forest in the world, covers northwestern Brazil.  The Amazon River, the longest river in the world, is considered to be the life force of the Amazon Rainforest and home to many plants and animals, such as the Boto (Amazon River dolphin), Amazonian manatee, giant river otter, and the infamous anaconda.

Here’s how I got this super deal:

First, I clicked on the “Mutil-city” tab.  Next, I entered where I’ll be traveling from, which in this case is “Brasilia”.  I then selected my departure date; since I’m flexible with dates, I selected “September 2017” to find the cheapest flights in September 2017.  If you know your exact dates, you can select your exact travel dates.  Finally, I clicked on the “Search Best Deals!” button and a list of the cheapest flights were displayed.

My cheapest flight option was to Belo Horizonte on September 25, 2017 for $37 USD.  I added this flight to my itinerary (BookIt List) by clicking on the “+Add to BookIt List” button.  A popup then appeared, such as the one below:

I decide to stay in Belo Horizonte for 4 nights and select the date September 29, 2017 for my departure.  I then click on the “To another destination” link and new results appear.  My cheapest option is to Sao Paulo for $29.  I add this flight to my itinerary by clicking on the “+Add to BookIt List” button, and repeat the above process until I’m back in Brasilia.  The above is just an example flight itinerary I’ve composed for this blog entry.  You can build your flight itinerary anyway you desire and select the destinations you want to travel to.  It’s possible to build an even cheaper itinerary than the one used for this example.

When visiting Brazil, here are a few of the best things to do:

  • Christ the Redeemer:  A must-see attraction in Rio that’s recognized as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

  • Baia do Sancho (Fernando de Noronha): Baía do Sancho has been named the best beach in the world by Tripadvisor.
