WHERE WE ARE OPERATING:
Note that in all cities, transfers are operational and either most or all tours are operating in all cities (check schedule when booking).
* Iguassu Falls: Note that we are not able to provide pick ups in Puerto Iguazu and are not operating any tours that cross the border to Argentina. These services are expected to return on November 16th (please note that this might change depending on the information provided by both Argentina and Brazil about the specific rules to enter both countries).
* Rio de Janeiro: According to the local health and safety authorities, all participants who are over 12 years old must present a proof of full vaccination or proof of first vaccination administered at least 15 days before the the day of the activity.
At the moment Brazilian borders are open if you travel by air to Brazil. Although, flights from India, South Africa and UK are suspended. All passengers, prior to embarking, will have to present to the Airline, a RT-PCR test for screening for SARS-CoV-2 infection made within the previous 72 hours to flight time, with a negative/non-reactive result to be allowed boarding. You can find more informations at https://www.iatatravelcentre.com/world.php
Borders are still closed by land or sea. Do check the latest information if planning to cross the border to Brazil by land or water. In recent orders signed by the President, travelers had to have travel insurance purchased that were valid in Brazil with a coverage of at least R$30.000,00 (thirty thousand reais and that has a contract/or proof of coverage in Portuguese or English). This was removed in most recent orders but we do suggest that you plan on getting a travel insurance for the duration of your stay in Brazil and make sure to follow the news in case the government reinstates the obligation to have travel insurance to enter the country.
* Above information subject to change without notice.
