Getting There & Away

Cruzeiro do Sul (www.cruzeirodosulms.com.br) is the principal bus company. Vanzella and Terra Transportes run door-to-door services from Campo Grande that are faster and not much more expensive than the regular bus.

For Estrada Parque, catch the 5am Corumbá bus (R$75 to Passo do Lontra, from where your pousada can pick you up). Minibus transfers are also available for R$80 to R$100 per person.

For Foz do Iguaçu you can either head to Campo Grande or Dourados and catch a direct bus from there. There are also various two-stop options. Operators sell through-tickets.

Getting Around

Most of Bonito’s attractions are a fair hike from town, and there’s no public transport. Some guesthouses lend their guests bicycles, or you can rent a decent mountain bike along the main street for around R$30 per day. Hotels and agencies can arrange transport for an extra R$40 to R$80 per excursion. Vanzella also run some scheduled departures to popular excursion points and can be chartered.

If you are part of a group, it might end up being more economical to hire a taxi for the full day (R$80 to R$180 depending on the distance). Moto-taxis can also be a good option for solo travelers.
