    Renting a car and driving

    by Naramata Online Now Sep 19, 2013 at 4:50 PM

    Is it feasible and/or safe for three of us to rent a car at CNF and drive ourselves to Ouro Preto? Our flight would arrive at about 3:30PM, on a Saturday, early February. Departure is three days later at 11:35AM.

    Transfers from Belo Horizonte Airport to Ouro Preto

    by Traveler-from-NY Online Now Nov 18, 2008 at 4:37 AM

    I will be flying into Confins airport, and I need transfers to Ouro Preto. What are my options, and what is the approximate cost? I have decided against using my travel agent for transfers due to the fact they wanted to charge me 412.00 USD. I would prefer not to use the buses, but if the bus is my best option, will I be able to bring large suitcases on board?

    Getting Ouro Preto from Rio. What are my Options?

    by Traveler-from-NY Online Now Nov 16, 2008 at 6:36 AM

    I will be in Rio in January 2009, and I would like to see Ouro Preto. What are my options for getting there? I have read about a bus that goes overnight, but are there any faster ways? Train, maybe a private motorcoach? Thanks for your help.
