Rio in 1 Minute, from the Board of Tourism of Rio:
Discover Rio de Janeiro, from the Municipality of Rio:
We hope you will join us this summer for one or more of these exciting learning opportunities. Great care has been taken to design educational and leisure activities that will enhance
your time abroad. We encourage you to find out more about the countries you will be visiting and to do some advance planning. It is always good advice to follow the common sense rules of travel:
don't carry large sums of cash, secure your valuables, be aware of where you are, and let others know your plans. Please visit any of the Department of State’s websites,
Country Specific Information or Smart Travel for more information.
Another helpful resource is the Education USA site: http://www.educationusa.info/pages/students/forus.php. Vaccinations for tropical diseases such as yellow fever
or the taking of prophylaxis for tropical diseases such as malaria are usually not required for travel to Rio de Janeiro state, although it may be required for students
traveling on afterwards to other parts of Brazil or elsewhere in South America. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that he or she takes all medical and
health-related precautions and plans carefully in advance. Detailed travel information and vaccine and prophylaxis recommendations can be found at the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control website:http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/brazil.aspx.
With these cares addressed we know you'll have a wonderful time. For late-breaking news, check this website.
