Brazil Travel Guide

Travelling with Kids

Traveling with children can be stressful, but with enough preparation you can ensure a relatively tears-free trip

Before traveling to more exotic locales, in particular with children, be sure to visit the Center for Disease Control's website: "Always check to see which shots are required and if there are any medical warnings. "Most inoculations take a week or two to take effect, so schedule your appointment for three to six weeks before leaving. Most shots last several years, so use it as an excuse to continue traveling." Avoid traveling with a sick child, as symptoms may worsen with the stress of travel.

There are plenty of activities to keep children busy in Brazil. Local Brazilians take their children everywhere and you'll feel comfortable doing the same.

If you're planning a family trip, the Amazon is a must-see. The range of family-friendly lodges and tours will ensure children have a safe and educational experience.

The city also has a range of sporting arenas, shows and public parks. Siqueira Campos Park offers a good break from the bustle of the city with its several small play areas featuring swings, teeter-totters and slides.
