How to Reach Aracaju

The Easiest Way to Reach Aracaju


  • By Air: Santa Maria Airport connects flights to domestic destinations all over Brazil. It is 12 km from the city. Taxis and buses both connect Aracaju to the airport.
  • By Car: BR 101 (north/south) and BR 235 are the main roads leading into the city, but as with bus journeys, avoid travelling at night. The beautiful Green Line highway goes to Salvador.
  • By Bus: Rodoviária Nova, 6km east of the centre, is where the long distance buses roll in to Aracaju. Don’t travel to Aracaju from Recife (or anywhere else) at night; robberies are common.


  • By Bus: Though cheap, the bus system is not well organised or timely. Unless you’re a local, you won’t get much use out of them.
  • By Taxi: Cheap during the day; pricier during the evenings and weekends. The best way to get around Aracaju.
  • By Cycle: The Bike Caju app will help you access the blue public cycles all around the city for daily/monthly fees. You can use the cycles for an hour at a time.
  • By Car: Renting your own car is certainly convenient if you don’t want to depend on taxis.
