If i can buy a ticket online how far in advance can I purchase it? What is the approximate cost? If not, how far in advance should I buy it in person and where is the terminal located?

      suggestions from the Coast to Minas Gerais

      Greetings from snowy Paris

      I'm planning a trip to Rio and MG in February and I would be delighted to have suggestions from fellow travellers. My questions relate to the first week of my stay during which we'll have a rented car to travel around:

      -where to spend our first night in Brazil along the Coast? Saquaremos, Buzios, Cabo Frio? It'll be a Saturday, so finding a place may not be easy...
      -where to be based to visit MG: 2 days in Ouro Preto, 2 days in Tiradentes ?
      -is it easy to safely park one's car in MG small towns? I guess MG ismuch safer than Rio with a car, am I wrong?
      -any close other place to visit in MG apart from the colonial towns and BH?
      -suggestions about Paraty?

      All suggestions about quaint places, good food or nice pousadas in MG and along the coast are welcome!

      2) Where is the best place to get a car ? The airports at Belo H and R de J seem to be the only places in the area with car hire

      3) Should I just see if I can find a guided tour that goes through the area ?
