Planning your trip!

You don’t have to stay at Mercure, but staying at the same hotel where the con is hosted is always better since you’ll be immersed!  Booking can be done through www.mercure.com/santos or any online hotel search engine.
Santos has many great hotels and Accor complex has a budget option: Ibis (1 or 2 persons per room). Ibis website is  www.ibis.com/santos
Mercure is located in a prime oceanfront area. It has it’s own restaurants and in the area around the hotel you can find  several restaurantes, bars, bakeries, malls and food kiosks.
A guide (in 3 languages, including English) is provided to all attendees with points of interest around the hotel.
It’s quite easy to move around Santos. If you’re coming from Sao Paulo by car you can take either Anchieta or Imigrantes Highways (both with toll plazas).
If you’re coming by airplane, probably you’ll arrive at Guarulhos International Airport in Sao Paulo. From Guarulhos Int’l you can ride a bus direct to Santos Bus Station. Service is made by Viação Cometa and buses departs from Arrival Levels.
If you’re coming by bus you’ll arive at Santos Bus Station, that is integrated with the central bus station.

Don’t worry! Brasil FurFest first attraction include group activities aimed towards integration. You’ll make new frieds quickly!
The con and the hotel where the con is hosted are English-friendly atmospheres. Most South American furries and staffs speak good English, still not everybody will be able to talk fluently. All signage and announcements are made in three languages: Portuguese, English and Spanish. Note that Portuguese is still the main language of the convention for most acitivities and English and Spanish are courtesy languages. For 2018, some activities are done in English and Spanish. ;-)
Besides your willing to have fun, you should bring enough clothing for your stay in Brazil. August is officially winter in Brazil but temperatures in Santos may vary from mildly warm to warm days and chilly nights. Fursuits, kigurumis, cosplays and other costumes are allowed at the hotel and convention areas (except for the restaurants). You should also bring any medicine you need to take on a regular basis that need to be filled with a prescription. Cold medicines, advil and common medicines for allergy and stomach issues can be easily found at any of the dozen local drugstores and are free to buy without a prescription.
