How to get there


From GIG (International) or SDU (Domestic)

If coming from GIG take the blue Premium Onibus (R$13) parked on the curb upon exiting the airport. Confirm that the bus will take Av. Niemeyer as there are two buses going different routes. After passing through the center of the city, Botofogo, Ipanema and Leblon the bus will enter Av. Niemeyer, a sloping two lane highway that lines the coast. Keep an eye out for the Sheraton Hotel and upon passing it prepare to get off. You will get off in front of the main plaza of Vidigal the only major entrance into the favela. From this point you have two choices depending on the quantity of baggage you have.


Taxis are always a safe option for travel in Rio.
They are more expensive after 9 pm, on holidays and weekends.
