How to get there

Arrival by airplane

From there, there will be a taxi pick-up service to bring you safely to the Pousada in Itacare. The pick-up is included in the price. If you wish to arrive at another closest airport, you can arrive at Deputado Luís Eduardo Magalhães International Airport (SSA). You can find cheap domestic flights to Ilhéus from there (São Paolo also has flights to Ilhéus, but Rio de Janeiro does not have direct flights to Ilhéus). From Salvador, you can catch the ferry boat (about 1 hour) then take the bus (about 5 hours) direct to Itacaré. This option is recommended if you aren’t traveling directly from the airport and feel confident enough with your level of Portuguese to be able to navigate public transportation.
