Beginning today, people throughout Brazil are able to create accounts on Yelp.com.br to share their opinions about great local businesses.

"We're excited to welcome this population of 200 million people into the Yelp fold. With such a diversity of cultures, tastes and ideas from every corner of the world, Brazil seems like a perfect fit for the Yelp family," says Miriam Warren, Vice President New Markets. "We can now give the 7th largest country by GDP the opportunity to share experiences about amazing local businesses; from the best place to watch football to where to drink Caipirinha, the national cocktail, all from their computers and smartphones."

The 23rd country in line to develop an active Yelp community is the largest in Latin America, and more notably it marks the company's first steps into South America. Adding to the list of firsts, it is also the first Lusophone country, meaning Portuguese becomes the 14th language in which reviews can be read, written and shared.

Sao Paulo and Rio will be at the heart of the initial community building focus, but the full-featured site will be available across the whole of Brazil, from the Rio Grande do Sul to Roraima and from Pernambuco to Acre and everywhere in between. Everyone, everywhere in Brazil with access to the Internet on a desktop or a smartphone now has the ability to share their insights on what is good, great and not-so great about local businesses in their neighborhoods.
