"your trip from rio to buenos aires" Rio de Janeiro Transportation Tip by rkearns

Rio de Janeiro Transportation: 222 reviews and 151 photos

i don't know what "cheap" is to you but be warned.... it's a LONG bus ride. i went from buenos aires to florianopolis, about 13 hrs (by car) from rio and it took 36 long hours. so i would plan on a 50 hr bus ride. that's two days. in a bus. with strangers. and no shower. but i'm not sure what you're used to. they do have some pretty good buffet food at the stops though.

just go to the bus station and you will see all the companies selling tickets. you can get one and be on a bus within an hr or two, in my experience.
