The average airfare from the USA to Rio has risen quite a bit over the years. Many of us recall paying $500US round trip to Rio from 2002-2005. We paid over a $1000US only during holiday periods. Now things have changed. $1,300US fares are the norm.
I just received information from the airlines that there are $700US round trip tickets available for late August.
Book soon because these seats will be gone soon.
