bus from Paranagua or Morretes to Florianopolis

Does anyone know if we can take the bus from Paranagua or Morretes to Florianopolis? And, do you know approximately how long it would take.

Am also trying to find out about buying tickets before we leave the US for the train from Curitiba to Morretes of Paranagua.

You can take a bus to most places in Brasil. It is how the majority of Brasilians travel within Brasil. I do know that the bus ride from Curitiba to Floripa is about 4-6 hours.

I am sure you will be able to get a local travel agent to buy your train tickets in Curitiba. A lot of travel agencies have people who speak some english.

I don't know if there is a direct bus from Paranagua to Floripa.

I think it is better go back to Curitiba and them take the bus to Floripa.

If you want informations or buy your train ticket ( ctba- Morretes-ctba) , go to www.serraverdeexpress.com.br

My advice:

When in Curitiba, go to Morretes by train, spend the day in Morretes, eat Barreado ( local food), see and go down the Nundiaquara river and go back to Curitiba ( by train again) to take the bus to Floripa. The train and bus station are in the same place in Curitiba.

Enjoy your trip!
