Arriving at or leaving from Santos Dumont

Santos Dumont Airport is the second biggest airport in Rio de Janeiro and the tenth biggest in Brazil in terms of passengers traffic. You will most likely come here if you are coming or going from and to different places in Brazil. This airport is "international" in a sense that it has flights to Asuncion in Paraguay. But, many people do not know that and consider this Rio de Janeiro Airport being national only.

Inside the airport you will find two restaurants, fast food places, bookstore, places to rent cars as hertz rent a car and avis rent a car, atm machines, post office and the federal Brazilian Police. A great advantage of Santos Dumont airport is that it is located in Rio de Janeiro Downtown.

You will also find taxis companies and the especial taxi as well. If, you going to or coming from the International airport Tom Jobim, I would recommend you to use the bus Frescao. It is very cheap (around R$6.00), secure and goes straight to and from airports. You may need a little bit though, because there is a bus every hour only.
