To add to our ever growing product range we are now able to offer mapping for both Brazil and Mexico. Mexico in particular is a popular holiday destination with UK holiday makers travelling to resorts such as Cancun andÂ Puerta Vallarta. In 2005 Mexico was voted the 7th most popular tourist destination in the world with over 20 million tourists a year. Many of the resorts offer all-inclusive deals so many tourists choose to stay within in the resort and relax. For the more adventurous there are many things to see in Mexico such as the ancient Meso-American ruins.
The new Brazil maps we have available to hire cover all major cities and towns. The new map shows the new Octavio Frias de Oliveira Bridge in Sao Paulo and covers all the major road networks.Â As Brazil is one of the up and coming economies of the world the TomTom comes in very handy for business travellers who may be visiting the main business hubs of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Although GPS mapping is available for Brazil very few of the car rental companies offer this service. Therefore hiring a sat nav before you go is highly recommended.
Although satellite navigation certainly helps driving in these countries it is not for the faint hearted. The roads can be poor in places and certainly in Brazil driving at night is to be avoided due to the pot holes and also straying livestock.
I have listed these useful links that give advice on driving in both Mexico and Brazil.
