Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

Gamboa Rio Hotel, Rio de Janeiro
Not bad for price, safe, quiet not much to do
It was good reception nice but rooms quite old and air conditioning very loud and makes it hard to sleep at night. Wasn't that strong either and has old 1950s feel with hot tub next to bed. Nice quiet hotel not much around but museums but not as busy as copacobana. Quite safe too and can walk to harbour 15 mins. Ok but down is loud aircon
