Cost of Living in Brazil

It’s quite normal and clever to have an idea of how much you’re going to spend during your stay in foreign country. I know exactly how you feel about that.

That’s why I decided to make this article. As country with continental proportions, Brazil has a wide variety of customs, accents and of course, costs of living.

Just for you to have an idea, the cost of living in the Northeast region is 14% below the national average.

If we talk in terms of cities, the most expensive are: São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Brasília, the capital of Brazil.

Some of the cheapest cities are: Natal, João Pessoa and São Luís, all located in the Northeast.

In order for you to have a better panorama of how much you will spend during your stay in Brazil, I’ve researched the prices of some products and services in two capitals: São Paulo and São Luís, where I come from. In order words, one expensive city and the other cheap. Prices are in Real, the Brazilian currency.
