One of the biggest sports events in the world is due to kick off this June, and if you’re going to be there – enjoy! There are so many wonderful places to stay in Brazil, many within walking distances to the venues. So let’s find out where to stay for World Cup 2014.
Hotels near Maracana Stadium, Rio De Janeiro, are still taking bookings, and you can book from the budget to the super-upmarket apartments, including football-styled apartments to help you get in the mood and stay in a football frenzy from June 12 until that climax, on July 13, 2014, where (it’s possible) the home team will be squaring off against another for the ultimate in football prizes. Fans will be cramming Rio for the final, so you’ll need to be quick.
England fans must find hotels near Arena Corinthians, Sao Paulo, to see their players take on the might of Uruguay. The true fan will want to stagger back to his local afterwards to finish the celebrations. If he misses out on this, there are hotels near Mineirão, Belo Horizonte where the England fans can relax after watching their boys play Costa Rica, not to mention the prize of pool D – the England v Italy match in Manaus on 14 June. Bring it on Azzurri!
US fans should enjoy watching the skills, not to mention other charms, of the Portugese in Manaus. The USA team will undoubtedly target the Ghanaian game in Natal as a chance to make it through to the next round, and not to be missed is the game against one of the top teams in the competition, Germany, in Recife.
Good fans will be scheduling holidays so as to watch the games regardless of time zones. True fans will be there cheering in person. Will you be?
