Thank you! Are taxis usually pretty expensive or pretty reasonable?
Taxis are expensive for Brazilian patterns, I guess for this distance will be lower than 100 reais, which nowadays would be around 25 dollars.
Get an UBER. There are lots. Dirt cheap. I just checked now and is 50 reals.
Uber or 99 Taxis. Public transportation (bus only) is a nightmare on the island;don't waste your time.Lived there for five years. and know everything about the place.
