Closest airport near Paraty

Hello,

We need to book a ticket Brasilia-Paraty

What would be the best airport to arrive?

There are several airports in Rio. But we also need to organise

transport from this airport to Paraty.

Maybe somebody can advise us?

Ciao ciao.

There is an airport at the city of Angra dos Reis, but just for private planes and is about 40 minutes from Paraty. My suggestion is to buy the ticket from Brasilia to Rio (GIG airport)and schedule a transfer with some transfers companies like Paraty Tours, Malizia Tours and others. The average price is around R$ 110,00 (around US$ 55) each way, picking up directly at the GIG airport to a hotel in Paraty, last about 4 1/2 hours.

Otherwise, you can go to the Terminal Buses Station in Rio, RODOVIÁRIA, take the COSTA VERDE bus to Paraty, cost about R$50,00 (US$ 25), last almost 5 hours.

If you choose to take the bus from Rio to Parati, then SDU airport (Santos Dumont), near downtown Rio, is closer to the bus station: 6 km versus 14 km from GIG.

From the GIG airport , also known as Galeão international airport, you can reach the RODOVIÁRIA (Terminal buses Station) either with a yellow cab taximeter (no more than R$ 30,00 or about 15 USD) or you can just take the PREMIUM AUTO ÔNIBUS (airport shuttle bus), written ALVORADA, costs R$ 12,00 or about¨6 USD, runs every 25 minutes from 05:30 am till 11;30 pm, makes a quick stop at this terminal.

Rio (GIG airport) to Parati: I would explore these 3 alternatives and decide which one best suits your budget, schedule, comfort requirements etc. And the answer may depend on the number of people traveling together (as you imply it is more than 1 person):

1. if you have already booked a hotel/pousada in Parati, I would contact them and ask if they can arrange transport (some of them do) and how much it costs;

2. as mentioned in answer #1 , there are a number of companies that provide GIG to Parati transportation. Again, it may turn out to be an interesting option depending on number of passengers. And you avoid backtracking from GIG airport to the Rodoviaria Novo Rio (bus station) - the bus to Parati will have to go back the same way you came. That can save you time, particularly if it is rush hour; those avenues can get very heavy traffic.

3. GIG to Rodoviaria plus Rio-Parati bus.

first, to get to Rodoviaria, it again depends on number of passengers. It may be better to take a taxi.

Or I think the air conditioned buses that go to Santos Dumont airport or to Alvorada (company is Real) stop at the Rodoviária Novo Rio. Bus price is about 10 or 12 reais per person.

And here is the link for the bus schedule from Rio to Parati. It costs 62 reias per person:
