On my Brazil road trip, I'm wondering about a certain section:
Belem to Bequimão, in January 2020
this stretch is 581km long and takes 10h39min, see google map directions
that would meet my needs, as I don't want to drive more than 12hours/day avoiding to drive at night. We are renting a small 4WD.
Some issues come into my mind:
- since the route is "only" 580km, but calculations is for nearly 11 hours, how bad are the roads?
- I'm traveling in the rain season, should I therefore add-on more travel time?
- The map link states:
"WARNING: This route has restricted usage or private roads.", it seems to relate to the ferries only?
So I come to my question:
Can I drive this stretch reasonably in less than 12 hours, or should I plan a halfway-point (around 50% travel-time)? If so, where would be a good place to stay overnight?
