We are a scenic, bilingual (Brazilian Portuguese and English), family-run campsite situated in the colourful state of Rio de Janeiro.  Our location, an hour and a half from the vibrant city, and beside one of Brazil’s most famous beaches, is absolutely ideal for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.  Our nearest town , Saquarema, is a relaxed surfer town by day and by night it comes more alive whilst still retaining its charm.

      1. Hi Carolina, thanks for the comment…the price is £10.00 per person per night and you can book on the site. The home page has a button “book now” which takes you to our booking agent, you pay via paypal. (You don’t need a paypal account you can do it as a one off.)

  1. Love to come to your campsite for at least a few days. I have 5 tickets for up in Recife but i would like to visit Rio etc or just chill and watch the footie

  2. I need information on your facilities. We have tickets in Salvador and Cuiaba but would like to spend a good bit of time around Rio.

  3. Hi, My wife and I have city specific tickets to the 5 games at Belo Horizonte. We are considering either camping in BH or camping in Rio and traveling to BH for every one of our games. Do you have an opinion of which would be smarter? Rio sounds more fun but I would not want to miss one of our games due to unreliable transportation. If you would recommend staying in BH do you know of a good place to camp there during the WC?

    1. Hello Adam, Great to hear that you and your wife will be heading to Brazil for the 5 games being held in Belo Horizonte. As the trip from our campgrounds to Belo Horizonte is approximately 530km and over 7 hours in drive time, it really wouldn’t make sense to take this on. I’m not aware of any camping facilities in Belo Horizonte, but would be happy to help you research as time permits. If you find your way to Rio and want to stay with us here at Camp in Brazil, just stay in contact, or use our booking button. Wishing you the best time and great travels.

      1. Hi Greg, just wondering, did you eventually get some tips on camping/staying in/around Belo Horizonte? I would be interested as well!

        1. Hi sorry don’t think Greg managed to find anything around that area, I’ll take a look and see if I can find anything in Portuguese. You may want to check out sites like they also do campsites as do

  4. I have used the contact us section but missed this on the front page, me and my mate have got a 17 day holiday during the world cup and would be very interested in booking a stay. It sounds awesome what you would be offering and would love some general advice and have a few questions I would like to ask. My email is if you could contact me that would be great.

  5. Hi, me and my friends are booking a camper van for the world cup but obviously we will need a safe place to park up and rest. Would you be able to accommodate us? It will be likely that we will have more that 3 people in the camper van, in which case 3 can sleep in the van and the other 1-3 people would sleep in a tent. If you know of any other suitable sites in the south of brazil in the vicinity of Rio and Sao Paolo I would greatly appreciate it.

    Please reply to my email address ( I look forward to you reply.

  6. Hey there. I’ll be in rio with a friend from around the 4th-13th July. Would be great to have a place to stay in your campsite. Let me know if you have plaes available! Cheers.

    1. Yes you can book it as your own tent, as if your motorhome is a big tent,so it’s per person per night. We have an area suitable for parking motorhomes. That’s assuming your motorhome is not a huge american one, roughly what size is your motorhome please?

    1. Hi thanks for the comment. You can book on this site, top right hand corner is a green click to book button that takes you to our secure booking agent freetobook, payment is via paypal…any problems please email and I will help with pleasure. We’ll also be listed with soon. Look forward to welcoming you to Campinbrazil.

  7. This initiative is great!! Thank you so much for doing this man! So happy we found an affordable place to stay around Rio. We have booked 4 nights with 4 people around the Belgium-Russia game in Rio :-) 3 Belgians and 1 Ukrainian on our way! Looking forward to our days on your camping!!


    1. Hi Nick, Exactly what we are trying to do, thanks so much for saying so, you’re joy reaches out at me, how lovely! I’ve just checked your booking, do you realise it for just 2 people for four nights…but maybe your friends are booking separately if so please ignore. :) Look forward to meeting you all, cheers and here’s to a great world cup.

      1. Hi maggie thank you for your message! No I don’t realize that, I thought I booked 2 tent places for in total 4 people, for 4 nights, totalling £160. Can you please contact me by email?

        1. I’ll mail cheers, sorry for the late reply internet has been off…yes I have both tent pitches booked in now sorry for the mix up the booking came to me separately, you’re good to go.:)

  8. I just tweeted this. From comments so far it looks like you’ll have a “full house” for the World Cup. Best wishes!

  9. Hi Anouska, I sent a few emails and never heard back from you. I would like to book my stay with you.
    Thank you

    1. Hi. My name is Michael and I am currently helping out at Camp in Brazil, along with my girlfriend Lizzie. Like you, myself and Lizzie are planning to drive around Brazil during the World Cup. We did quite a bit of research and found to be the cheapest. We did however book quite a few months ago so prices may have increased since then, but they would be my recommendation. We also found it cheaper to hire from the airport, and it makes it more expensive if you drop the car off at a different point to where you picked it up which are certainly things to consider when booking.

      It goes without saying that you are welcome to stay at CampinBrazil at any point during your travels. We are offering a camping pitch for £10pppn ($16 approx), with no minimum booking. Check out the website for more details and updates. We are also on Twitter @campinbrazil, so feel free to follow us for the updates.

      If you have any more questions, then please do not hesitate to ask. I wish you all the best on your travels and I hope you have an amazing time here in Brazil.


  10. HI guys, ill be staying at your campsite during June & July and was wondering is it possible to rent surfboards in Saquarema? Look forward to being there.


    1. We’ll check this coming weekend…my son does surf school every weekend, he’d happily take you along…lessons are about R$20,00 for a 2 hour lesson, my son books a block of eight 2 hour lessons for R$120,00 about £32 or US$60…great surf school, lots of teachers (one speaks English quite well) and helpers and I feel sure they’d rent board or know where they can be rented. Look forward to meeting you. :)

    1. Hi Richard,
      We do indeed have vacancies. The coaches are fantastic and travel throughout the country, connecting all towns and cities. From Bacaxa (our local shopping area) you can get a bus hourly (some parts of the day the run half hourly) straight into Rio Novo main bus station and from there you can connect to the whole of Brazil easily. Brazil doesn’t have much of a train service, just a few small tourist services, try expatbrazil’s article Brazil by Train for those services…but you need to read Brazil by Bus which has lots of links to bus companies some in English to help you plan and organise your travel.
      Any problems we can help with just ask please.
      cheers, :).

  11. Hi Maggie, just booked 3 nights with you….can’t wait to visit Brazil. Could you tell me, are there direct buses from Rio to your campsite? Do you know the cost of these buses? Thanks

    1. We’ve done a pdf with all those things on, I’ll mail you one…you can easily get a bus from Rio and they run about 20-22 hours a day. It costs about R$27,00 one way.

    1. I’ve mailed what we send to campers to show campinbrazil in relation to Bacaxa and Saquarema. If you google ‘Saquarema’ map, you’ll get an interactive map which you can then see where we are in relation to other towns and cities in Brazil, also take a look at this article by worldcuplatest, World Cup Camping Rio, that shows distances to the Maracana and Copacabana from all the campsites around Rio…we are in fact the nearest because you don’t have to drive 30 miles across gridlocked Rio.
      Look forward to welcoming you to Campinbrazil.
