  • Bus in Rio

    Rio de Janeiro Transportation

    The International Airport of Rio de Janeiro / Galeão (IATA: GIG; Official name: Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport) is located on an island (Ilha do Governador) northeast of the city, and approximately 20/25 kms from the city center.

  • Get a Taxi

    Rio de Janeiro Transportation

    Because of the reviews I read here regarding Paulo Silva - taxinorio.com.br, I called Mr. Silva on his cell (yes, he does pick up the phone), and I spoke to him in Portuguese. It was not a short conversation. I let him know specifically when I would be arriving in Rio, and where I needed him to pick me up. I also let him know that I would be...

  • Metro system

    Rio de Janeiro Transportation

    It's safe and convenient to take metro in Rio during the day. Passenger can transit any of 2 lines for R$2.6 and several stations are close to downtown attractions and Copacabana beach. If one wish to visit Sugarloaf or Corcovado by metro, simply purchase a metro+bus ticket for R$3.4. Exit at Largo do Machado and transit the metro onibus heading...

  • Going by bus

    Rio de Janeiro Transportation

    From Rio, buses are the only way onwards. You can catch the night bus to Ouro Preto or Sao Paulo, 8-9 hrs and 6 hrs. Buses are quite pricey in Brazil, they also get busy so book as early as you can. The bus station is quite a bit out of the city centre, so book a taxi $15 and allow 30 mins to get there.

    This is an older airport but has the basics covered .The money exchange is just after the baggage area. We noticed they exchanged Canadian dollars at a good rate even though our Lonely Planet book advised otherwise...could have saved on the exchange rate... There is supposed to be an ATM upstairs but we were too exhausted after our overnight...

  • Rio de Janeiro-Galeão International...

    Galeão International Airport is one of the main entry ports into Brazil from most international destinations. Coupled with São Paolo, I would assume a large majority of all international flights land between these two. The airport is also known as Antônio Carlos Jobim International Airport, so do not confuse it with the other airports in Rio, which...

  • Two airports

    There are two airports in Rio -- the international one and the domestic one (Congonhas). I suggest you fly into the domestic airport because it's right in the city and has an amazing landing and takeoff -- right over the water! Plus, there seems to be more service from/to Sao Paulo.
