Transportation from Boa Vista Airport

Boa Vista

There is no public transport on the entire island of Boa Vista. There are taxis and rental cars available.

The official light blue taxis with a yellow stripe are regulated and monitored by the authorities and therefore are the safest to ride in.

There are always plenty of taxis parked outside the airport terminal after each arrival.

Taxi drivers normally accept Euros for payment. Payment can only be made in cash and the price is negotiable. Local taxi drivers are polite and do not usually overcharge.

Expect to pay the following from the airport:

  • Resort RIU Touareg - 25 eur
  • Other resorts - 10 eur

You can also consider renting a car, but you won't find many roads on the island and it may end up being an unnecessary investment.

Renting a car

There are only two local car rental companies at the airport and no international ones. Prices start at 45 eur per day.

Transport within the tour

If you arrive with a complete tour purchased from a tour operator, a free airport transfer to your hotel will be provided.

After passing through passport control in the arrivals hall, you will find your travel agent's delegate who will make all the necessary arrangements.
