Does anyone know where the best point of departure is for Brazil? or even another SA country where I could cheaply get to Rio within a week or so? I speak Spanish, English, and really bad Portuguese (it's more like Portuñol) so I don´t mind traveling through other SA countries.
I live in Kansas City, but don't mind lots of connections if it will save me the cash -- the adventure is in the travel :)
I'm looking to spend about 3-4 weeks mainly in Rio from mid-Dec to Mid-Jan. Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!!!
