Getting Around In Brazil
Brazil is a massive country and depending upon your final destination, and where you are coming from, you may arrive in Brazil at any number of different international airports including Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, or Belo Horizonte. The majority of the most popular destinations in Brazil can be reached by air, or by a combination of air and overland. The only exception to this are certain lodges in Manaus Amazon can only be reached by boat transfer from Manaus City Airport. The following information is designed to help make transportation choices that are best suited to your vacation plans, and personal preferences.

Ground Transportation
Ground transportation in Brazil is most often used for hotel and airport transfers with the exception of travel to destinations that do not have local airports, but can be reached by car from nearby cities that do. See chart below. We reccommend that our travelers use the Private Transportation for most Airport and Hotel transfers in Brazil, although there are some shared transfers available. We discuss both below, and transportation options can be selected In the booking process:
Private Transfer:
When transferring from the airport to your hotel, or returning to the airport from your hotel, the best way to avoid stressful situations, and insure that your vacation will begin as soon as you arrive in Brazil is with an experienced driver in a private car reserved exclusively for your party. In the booking process you will also have the option to choose an English speaking guide, otherwise qualified Portuguese speaking drivers are provided. Vehicles are modern and comfortable, and are typically equipped with air conditioning and internal radio communications. Whenever possible we can recommend Private Transfers in Brazil.
Shared Travel:
These transfers can involve multiple stops, and we cannot guarantee the order in which you will picked up or dropped off. We only offer shared transportation for intercity transfers from Rio de Janeiro to and from: Angra dos Reis, Buzios, and Paraty, and though it is a less expensive option, it can be inconvenient. Private options are also available.
