Tips for calculating a vacation budget in Brazil

Refined cuisine at affordable prices

Despite steadily rising prices, Brazil remains an affordable travel destination. Indeed the cost of living is still a lot lower here than in Germany and it is often much cheaper to dine in the small restaurant around the corner than shop and cook for yourself.

Of course, as everywhere, there are bars in all price ranges depending on the standard selected. Restaurants and bars are reasonably priced and it is common in open-air eateries 1 to 2 euros for a caipirinha to pay. However, the cheapest solution to fill you up is in restaurants, where food is priced by the kilo. You simply pay the weight of your plate, regardless of what is on it: duck costs just as much as pork etc. ... This is not only extremely inexpensive, but thanks to this concept you can try different specialties in the course of just one meal. Depending on your appetite and the quality of the restaurant, you will spend an average of around 10 euros per personif not less.
