Travelers will find a mix of 110 and 220 voltage in Brazil. Most tourist hotels have both clearly marked. One may purchase small voltage converters or simple plug converters to take with you. If buying light bulbs be sure to check if they are 110v or 220v.

Power outages are common, especially during storms. It is wise when in the city (and not using a diesel generator) to keep candles, matches, lanterns and flashlights on hand. It is also advisable to have surge protectors for all major appliances, televisions, telephones, faxes and computers.

Color TV’s purchased in the U.S. play only black and white in Brazil. You may have your TV converted ($US150-$200) or purchase a transcorder for approximately $100.
