Travel

Please download these pdfs for travel information.

The road doesn’t go all the way to Terramaya, there is a 20 minute walk uphill to arrive. Donkeys can be organised to carry the luggage. 

 
 
Health 
 
As Terramaya is in the mountains, the typical mosquitos that transmit Dengue, Zika and Malaria don’t normally thrive there. Of course, we can’t guarantee it absolutely, so it is up to each one to inform themselves and decide which precautions to take. The same applies for vaccinations.
For vaccines please check your local travel health care or http://www.mdtravelhealth.com/destinations/samerica/brazil.php
