"Taxi cabs in Rio" Brazil Tourist Trap Tip by selfishman

Brazil Tourist Traps: 38 reviews and 27 photos


My roommates paid $30 USD each way for a cab ride to downtown for the samba parade. I paid $0.75 for two roundtrip tickets on the subway and we got there faster than my roommates.

Unique Suggestions: You Have to take cabs some places in Rio but you could save yourself a lot of time and money by taking the subway. It's new, very clean, and relatively safe.

Fun Alternatives: I don't have train schedule info but with a little bit of research I'm sure it's not hard to find. I actually didn't even know there was a subway in Rio until a couple days before I left.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
