Buying Brazilian Reais

Postby curlyguy18 » Sat Jun 09, 2012 2:14 pm

Hi. I know I can exchange money into reais at the airport both here in Lima and in Brazil. I was wondering, though, if anyone knows of another place where I can exchange my money into reais?

Thanks,

Jr.

Don`t change money at the airport. It`s a RIP OFF. They give you worst possible exchange rate.

Better to withdraw Reales from an ATM in Brasil or change at exchange offices in Brasil.

I just went to Brazil, the best exchange rate I got was just paying everything with my credit card !
It gave me an exchange rate of like 1.97 real to the dollar, while changing cash
gave me 1.8 and 1.6

In most places you can pay with a credit card

Today I changed ripped dollars in Jiron Ocoña next to Hotel Bolivar in Plaza San martin. They exchange soles for brazilian reales.
I asked them and they said
1 real = 1.15 nuevos soles.
