Sao Paulo (GRU) to Santos hotel transportation and COVID testing


Recommended Posts

Hi -


   My wife and I are taking the MSC Fantasia from Santos,Brazil to Lisbon leaving on 3 April.... We are flying into GRU airport a day early (aprox 9:30am Sunday, the 2nd.)  What's the best way to get a taxi/car from the airport to our hotel in Santos.


  Will we need any local currency? I would prefer to pay with a credit card.

Oops -


I forgot to ask my second question:


MSC requires a COVID test prior to embarkation. Does anyone know where I can get a test (and report) on Sunday afternoon, or Monday morning?

To follow up, and answer my own question..... We used the Guarucoop taxi service from GRU airport to Santos... They have a booth on the sidewalk outside the terminal (covered) where you pay for the taxi up front. The cost was a little less that $100US. The trip takes about 2 hours because much of the route is on surface roads going through Sao Paulo. (But the scenery in the hills afterwards was great!)
