Is it possible to get a bus from the airport to my guesthouse?

by sparklie_em

Hi,

i wonder if someone knows if its possible to get a bus from the main airport to my guesthouse in Laranjeiras (Rua Alice 681). We really want to use the bus as its the cheapest option and as we're going for carnival we've already spent a fortune :) Thanks for your help. Oh we'll also be arriving around 5 in the morning if it makes any difference.

If your plane arrives at 5, you may not be out of the airport until 7ish. Take a taxi. THey aren't SO expensive, and a few more bucks to be delivered safely and conveniently when you're likely to be tired and somewhat disoriented is a good value. The Real bus route does not go to Laranjeiras and the local public buses are not advisable with luggage.

They have shuttles that go from the airport to different parts of the city. I took a city bus during the day and it was a great way to see parts of Rio I never would have seen, but sheesh, I would be cautious that early or very late.

From the drop off point in Laranjeiras (ask someone at the airport which shuttle goes to Laranjeiras) have a cab take you to your door. That's a cheaper option.
Hope that helps!

Travel Tips for Rio de Janeiro

Walking along any sidewalk in...

by ssm10

Walking along any sidewalk in front of the ocean (Copacabana, Ipanema or Barra) during a summer afternoon is really socializing with cariocas (as we call people from Rio). Stop, have a sit and some drinks and simply watch people passing. It's carioca's way of life. When I travel and come back, the first thing I want to do is to go to the beach. I know that we can find beach anywhere, but ususally I don't travel for beaches. And I miss it a lot. In Rio I'd recommend you Grumari and Recreio (those are far, if you don't have car). If you like beach sports, you can play volley, peteca, foot-volley, or something else...Things happen on the beach in Rio, so go for it !

In theory, foreign drivers'...

by Aina

In theory, foreign drivers' licenses are acceptable. In practice, however, police (particularly highway police) have been known to claim that driving with a foreign license is a violation in order to shake down drivers for bribes. It's best to get an International Driver's Permit, which is seldom challenged.

What NOT to wear...

by Debinha

People frequently ask about what to wear in order not to look like a tourist in Rio. For that matter, I´d rather tell what a carioca would NEVER WEAR : 1. socks stretched up to the knees; 2. trousers/pants for a walk by the beach; 3. shirts with tropical patterns (big flowers, trees, butterflies etc...); 4. loud screaming colours; 5. big hats, scarfs or similar on the head; 6. golden bling-bling jewlery; 7. heavy make up (if any); 8. overstyled hair-do, 9. t-shirt into pants. 10. belts (unless you are wearing a formal attire); 11. sandals with socks; 12. rubber sandals (havaianas) to go dinning or dancing at a night club, wherever it might be (that is the right time to give some other flat shoes a try when you´re in Rio).
Just wear simple - and have fun!

Tipping

by Alless

In better Brazilian restaurants, a 10% service charge is included in the bill, but feel free to leave more. Tip a cabdriver no more than 10%. In a hotel, tip the bellboy, the porter or the concierge about R$1 per luggage item or for help given.

AN AUSTRALIAN PHOTOGRAPHER

by RafaelTheSecond

Well, what a great place for photography lovers...And my big friend from the outbecks was in the right place!

Here in Parque da Cidade where no one really knows where it is located, is the mecca for great photographers! And I had the honor and the prestige to take a picture of a big one!;)
