airport Shuttle Rio

We will be arriving at Rio de Janeiro international airport soon and would like to take a shuttle Rio to Copacabana. Can we book it on arrival? What is the best way to arrange it? How much can we expect to pay for a shared one? Many thanks for help.

Because airport shuttles charge per person, it would probably be cheaper for two people just to go by taxi from the airport to your hotel. See “Travel Guide” (Taxis) in the box to your left.

Yes, just get a yellow cab outside of the terminal.

Expect to pay around BR$ 50 - 70 depending on the hour and the traffic conditions. don't pay more than this.

Welcome,

Brazil Rio.

Another possibility is the regular line 2018 called by Frescão (nickname). You can take it at the Int´l airport outside area (first floor in the Terminal 2, second floor if you arrive in the terminal 1) and you will pay R$ 9,00 per person (the trip lasts much more then if you took your personal taxi direct, but it is quite scenic!).

It passes by all the main seaside avenues of Rio, including Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon and can stop whenever you ask.

So, depending on the situation of your hotel (if close to the ocean drives), it could be easy.

I´ve already heard good coments about that company:

We took this bus in reverse and found it excellent. It saves you a lot of money and all the hassle of having to negoitiate with taxi drivers. It takes about an hour and like gusdali says it is scenic and goes to copocabana, ipanema and leblon.

have a great trip

DDD is the regional number. For instance, Rio's DDD is 21. So if you call someone in Rio from abroad, you'll dial 55 (Brazilian number) 21 (Rio) then the actual number. Internally, we usually provide our phones in forms like that: (21) XXXX-XXXX.
