Brazil/Buzios: Booking bus tickets in advance?

Jump to last reply

I am planning to visit Buzios, arriving on March 5th. And this year's Carnival is from Feb 28-Mar 4th.

As I will land in Rio on the day of arrival (March 5th), and hope to immediate catch the Viação 1001 bus to Ruzios, I am worried that I might need to book RIO-BUZIOS bus tickets in advance due to the end of Carnival.

Would anyone know if folks typically would head out to Buzios from Rio right after Carnival? Is it necessary to book bus tickets in advance, or should I take my chances? As a foreigner visiting, I don't have a CPF number which is required to book bus tickets online or via phone, therefore booking in advance would be a real challenge for me:(

Appreciate any insight.

Thanks.
