How to get there

Please always communicate your means of travel, flight number (if flying) time of arrival and airport (either Galeão International Airport –– GIG, or Santos Dumont).

After you go through customs and before getting out into the airport as such, you will see some taxi booths where you pay a fixed fee at the booth for a cab. You ask the girl in the booth for a cab to Botafogo, which will probably cost approximately 90 to 100 Brazilian Reais (R$100). Once out onto the patio, you then get your cab and give half of the your ticket to the cab driver.
