Getting there & around
Itacaré’s bus station (3288 2019) is located just out of the center, but it’s a bit of a hike from many of the pousadas. To get to Itacaré, you will most likely need to connect through Itabuna or Ilhéus. Rota (3251 2181)has frequent buses to Ilheus (R$7.50, 1½ hours, from 5:15am to 7:30pm) and Itabuna (R$10.50, 2½ hours, from 6am to 7:30pm). Several daily buses go to Porto Seguro (R$38, eight hours).
A ferry carries cars and passengers across the river to the Peninsula de Maraú (R$10). Several agencies in town hire cars, including Pituba (3251 3648; Rua Pedro Longo 235; per day R$90).
