How to reach us from the Airport
The International Airport Galeão (GIG) is situated just outside the city (around 30/40 minutes by car).
A taxi from the International Airport should cost around R$ 70 reais (US$ 40).
1. Please take the Real bus 'Frescão' on the departure floor which costs R$8,00 reais and leaves every 30 minutes.
2. Catch it in front of the exit gate and get off at the Atlantica Avenue on the corner of Barão de Ipanema Street (in front of Hotel Rio Atlântica).
3. At the Barão de Ipanema Street you will walk 4 blocks until arriving at Pompeu Loureiro Street.
4. From there you will see a quiet cobblestone street called Travessa Santa Leocádia no 38, and that's where we are.
We offer an Airport transfer for R$ 65 reais for max. 4 people .
