    Getting much better with more food choices. But they should turn off the loudspeaker announcements, they are noisy, unintelligible and give you a headache.

    If you are landing here, book right window seat. It's likely you going to have the best views of Rio, flying on low altitude by Corcovado and Sugar Loaf, over Botafoga beach.

    Much nicer than Galeão! The temperature is well-controlled. There are many wonderful shops, and it looks and feels clean.

    Lots of snack places but not enough seats around! There's a medical clinic at departure area and it is free!

    Food is reasonable, small so you dont have to walk a long way, clean and secure, taxis are expensive so just walk to the main street and get a taxi from there.

    convenient due to its proximity to the center snd zona sul of Rio de Janeiro. it is recently renovated and is a small airport for domestic flights

    Its a decent airport. Its small and quiet. At the end of the day its still an airport. By US standards they are more lax on security which I really like. No hassle security and decent fast food.

    Take blue or red cabs if you're new in town it a foreigner, there are booths right outside luggage belts area. If you're a local, go for yellow one.

    N pegue taxis do pto do aeroporto. Espere algum outro chegar. - - - Be careful with taxis from airport. Many of them with taximeter adultery. Wait for a taxi arrived with passenger and take this one.

    Don't expect to find an international ATM in the upstairs departure area. Try your luck downstairs on the main floor near Arrivals, to your far left as you enter the main terminal.

    In the new halls near the harbor the main samba schools of Rio are housed. Visitors can watch as the carnival costumes are tailored and the huge cars are built. Thursdays there are also Shows. Samba!

    There is no need to get a cab. Ask for the blue bus outside the airport. It covers all touristic areas and hotels.

    NEVER pay the cab inside the airport taxi booths. Take it outside. Its always secure and HALF a price.
