    • How to get to this Address

      by Frequentraveler Online Now May 6, 2013 at 4:43 AM

      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

    • best beach wedding location(s)

      by MWjiggy Online Now Apr 4, 2008 at 11:22 AM

      I'm getting married in Buzios too! I unfortunately will not get the opportunity to see the area before we travel for the big event, so this makes planning difficult. I am hoping to get some good suggestions on which of the many beaches would be best suited for a small ceremony (no chairs or big props or anything, just small, quiet and secluded preferably) - and does one need to get a permit or permission of any kind to gather a small group (30ish) at the beach for an hour?

      Also, I'm looking for restaurant suggestions for rehersal dinner and for dinner after the wedding. Any place that would be great for groups? The more local and traditional the cuisine the better...

      Thank you for your help! And if anyone knows of other places to look for this kind of information it is greatly appreciated! I can't wait to go!

    • Buzios after carnival

      by thelak Online Now Dec 19, 2006 at 4:51 AM


      We are in Rio for carnival and are planning to go to Buzios from the 21st to the 25th of Feb i.e at the back end of carnival.

      I was wondering whether it would be busy at this time or whether it suddenly goes quiet after carnival ends. We are basically looking to wind the holiday down but still party pretty hard in the evenings so want to make sure Buzios will be what we are looking for.

      Thank you

      What is Buzios like in April, May and June?

      by Vanessa-brNC Online Now Jul 14, 2005 at 8:09 AM

      Hi everyone,

      I'm Brazilian, but live in the USA. I went to Buzios for the first time on December 2005 - it was fantastic!
      I'm now engaged and want to bring all my friends to Buzios after a wedding in BH. I have the date set for end of April, but my fiance's sister can't come then. She can only come in June (first week).

      Do you know what Buzios is like in June? The water was freezing even in December, though we could manage it since it was so hot. I heard that in June it is cold, and very windy, and that there is no one around.. We would be there the first week of June 2006. Is the weather much better at the end of April or is there not much difference? (compare April 26 to June 7).

      I have always wanted to bring my friends to Brazil, and it is important to me that they have a fantastic time in my country - for that I need good weather!

      Oh, and we are definately doing the boat tour to the Prainhas!

      Can anyone recommend a good rental company in town?
      Is the drive dangerous? Anything we should be careful of?
      Also, can anyone please recommend a good pousada in Buzios for a 1 night stay? Anything up to US$100 is okay.
      Final question - will the weather be hot in Buzios in July?

      Oi, I was offered a summer job in Saquarema RJ. I was wondering what any of you may know about it. I actually interviewed and spent a few hours there. Seems like a lot more relaxed than Rio. I was just wondering a few things, it's basic population size, any fun things to do there night or day, and if the beaches there (walked near them but didn't get a chance to actually go to the beach) are good in terms of cleanliness, water quality. Also if the lake there is protected and in good enough condition for fishing. Obrigada
