Mensagem:  I'm not sure, but "a guide to Brazil" sounds much better to me. If you say "a guide for Brazil", it sounds like you're giving a guide for someone/something named Brazil... OK, that sounds kind of foolish... Anyway, let's see what Google says:

"guide to Brazil": 69,600 results
"guide for Brazil": 930 results
