Rio taxi from airport or any other transportation method?

Guys, I am landing in Rio on Sep 2 (Monday) at 9am and was wondering what are the best ways to get into the city from the airport? Is there any other possibility besides a taxi?
What should be a normal rate for a taxi ride say to Copacabana?
I have no idea and just want to make sure I don't get ripped off.


Hello ivant,

I presume you're arriving at Aeroporto Internacional Antônio Carlos Jobim (Galeão).

From there to the Copacabana area is going to cost (depending on the time of day) anywhere from R$46 - R$55 (USD $23 - $28).

You can check out the fare at the following site. If you have the exact address of your destination the calculation will be more accurate.  Cheers,
