Getting Around

From the bus station, Ecobus (www.ecobus.com.br) services the outlying beaches. Buses to Maresias (R$5, one hour), Juqueí (R$5.20, 1¼ hours) and Camburi (R$5.20, 1½ hours) leave every 30 minutes between 5am and 11pm. For Guaecá (R$3.80, 10 minutes) – the local favorite! – catch the Ecobus along BR-101 (Rodavia Manuel Hipolíto de Rêgo), the main road heading west from centro. Taxis from the bus station cost around the following for Maresias (R$100), Juqueí (R$180), Camburi (R$140) and Guaecá (R$40).
