I am in Rio de Janeiro and would like to go to Ilha Grande next friday, the 24th of may 2013 until the 27th.
I've been told that during weekends, it get's quite packed, and you need to book in advance;
Since it is low season now, is this still recommended?
Also: Does anybody can recommend me a place to stay? I am in my 30's, single traveller, would like to meet nice people, but not be in a place full with party-people.
I am leaving Buzios tommorrow morning. Do not have an clear idea on how to get to this apartment in the area of Rio or Copacabana: The owner or manager wrote the following information: Se você chegar pelos Aeroportos Santos Dumont ou Galeão, pode pegar o ônibus "FRESCÃO" que o deixará a 50 metros do apto e da sede da Agência, onde retirará as chaves.
Se chegar pela Rodoviária, o "frescão" também passa lá.
Depois, peça ao motorista para descer na Avenida Princesa Izabel, esquina com Nossa Senhora de Copacabana. Siga pela Nossa Senhora de Copacabana e a próxima avenida é a Prado Junior. Entre à esquerda e logo chegará no número 48 = Agência Heidelberg.
I am in Buzios right now. I am planning to take a taxi that will take to bus station, Auto Viacao 1001 from here to the airport at Rio de Janeiro. According to the directions given to me by the owner do I take the Frescao to my final destination? Will the Frescao take my two pieces of luggage? Any comments will be greatly appreciated. Thank You
We just found out that we will be in/around Rio during the start of Carnival 2014! We are just working on an itinerary for two weeks in Brazil, however things have changed since out recent discovery. Here's what we were thinking of doing:
1/30 - Buenos Aires-Iguazu Falls
1/31 - Iguazu - Salvador
2/4 - Salvador - Ouro Preto(via Belo Horizonte)
2/14 Buzios to GIG(late flight home)
I think getting accommodations on Rio on the dates suggested will be a nightmare! Should we go to Rio at the start of Carnival or perhaps the end of our trip 2/12-14?? Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
I´m going to visit Rio in three days. I would like to ask two last questions :
1. At the International airport, I need to change a little money for the bus, what`s the best change ATM or a change office ?
If I draw out money in ATM airport, is the same comission that in Rio city ATM or is bigger ?
2. In the weekend, I would like to visit Pao de Azucar or Corcovado but I think there`ll a lot of people. Which one is less crowded ?
Thank you for your help. Kind regards
I will be leaving to Rio in a couple of days. I will be spending a couple of days in Buzios and seven nights in Rio. Should I take US cash with me? or should I use the local banks to withdraw money using my Bank's ATM? I need to pay for the rent of the places where I am staying at and also need to have cash for the bus transfer, dinning, etc. Any suggestions please help. Thank You
Hi everyone. I will be in Rio de Janeiro on business July 6 - 12. I will have Saturday entirely free and was thinking of using that day to explore Ihle de Paqueta. I have been to Rio several times and have seen many of the traditional "spots." Is this a good way to spend my one free day, or does someone recommend something else? Can I rent a bike on the island? Obrigados!
