At the moment the cost of getting there from the UK is putting me off a little - is it cheap to eat, drink and get a decent hotel room - was thinking of visiting Sao Paulo or Rio.
Any help most appreciated
Depends on the game. If you want to see an international match, it's about R$80 (cheapest seat) to R$120, that's US$28.60 to US$42.90, maybe more depending on where the game is or where you're seated - last time I went to see a game, it was Brazil vs Bolivia, and I payed R$80 to the cheapest seat. If you want to see a regular soccer championship game, it depends on where you're going to be seated. A ticket in the upper seats is usually around 10 to 15 (3.6 to 5.4 dollars), but I really DONT recomend getting those seats, as they are usually used by hardcore, hooligan like fans. I'd recomend a lower, closer to the field seat, which would cost something around... I dont know, maybe R$50 or R$60, about 18 to 20 dollars. So, avoid at all costs seating in the so called "GERAL" seats. Do not buy the ticket on the streets, buy it on the authorized selling points. Usually the traveling agencies buy tickets to tourists and take them to the stadiums, but I don't know how much they charge.
Yes, things are quite cheap over here. In Rio, things a little bit more expensive as it's a touristic city. I'm not so sure what you could do over here in Sao Paulo, as it's NOT a touristic city at all, so I'd recomend coming to Brazil only if you are one of those travellers who enjoy getting lost, doing stuff all by themselves, and visiting weird, different places, and enjoy traveling around with nothing more than a backpack and a tourist guide in an adventurous kinda way. If you are the "tour bus guide"kinda tourist, you'll probably not enjoy it.
