Transfers: Rio - GIG Airport to Paraty

I'll be arrive late 16:00 in Rio and like to go straight to Paraty.

This company offer transfers direct from the airport, but seem a little expensive. Is there anyone have use the transfers from this site: www.infoparaty.com/en/Transfers-to-paraty-31 ?

Is there other good company which offers transpotation from GIG airport to Paraty?

try to contact

But the regular bus line is in your case, highly recommended, because of the price and comfort. The problem would be, indeed, that you should face a traffic jam from the Int´l airport to the Bus Terminal and them, deal with a "confused enviroment at the Rodoviária Novo Rio (the bus Terminal). But, again, the trip and the buses from Viacao Costa Verde (Rio - Paraty) are very good.

Good luck!

@gusdali

Thank you for you recommendation, but I like to avoid tranfer via Downtown Rio...

The price is almost the same... 149 Real each way (airport-Paraty) vs 229$US/7days pass (Downtown-Paraty via "The Green Toad Bus")

If you have already something booked or paid in Paraty (hotel) maybe they can help you providing a reliable and cheaper way to reach it.

Mistertours is a company that does this service between the international airport of Rio directly to many hotels in Búzios and Cabo Frio (thats other direction). They use a kind of microbus with air and very comfortable seats. The price is about R$ 100,00, each way.The mail: mistertours@mar.com.br.

Try to contact them and ask them about the possibility of do that for you. That will, probably, be more expensive, as Paraty is about 100km farer from Rio than Buzios.

But if you really want to save time, why don´t you rent a car and take it right at the airport?

You will save time and money and will have the opportunit to enjoy even more the southern coast of Rio state.

But pay attention to the fact that it is not easy to drive in Brazil (Rio), mainly due to bad road conditions and bad driver´s education / habits.

Unfortunately...

@GUSDALI

Thank you for the tip on mistertours@mar.com.br

I'll try to contact them as well as the hotel.

As for the driving, I know that GPS may solve problem, but I start to read the posting on driving to Paraty... and then we decide not to try...

If you take a bus, specially the regular one, try to take a seat on its left side on the way to Paraty and on the right side on the way back in order to experience the nice views.
