From Angra dos Reis, boats depart at 3:30pm Monday to Friday and 1.30pm on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays; they return from Abraão at 10am daily. The 1½-hour ride costs US$2.50 Monday to Friday, and US$6 Saturday and Sunday. Costa Verde buses depart Rio every 45 minutes to Angra (US$10). Five daily buses from Rio go to Mangaratiba (US$7.50). Catch the earliest (5.30am) to make the ferry. Eight daily buses connect Angra with Paraty (US$2, two hours).
