Our bus from Niterói went as far as Angra dos Reis. Then we transferred to a local bus company, Colitur, to ride the hour-plus further down the coast to historic Paraty (R$8). (There are busses from Rio that go directly to Paraty, but since we were leaving at 6:00 a.m. we departed from our local Niterói bus station.) From there we hopped a really local bus, again Colitur, for the additional 45 minutes to Trindade (R$3).Getting to the coastal town of Trindade was a bit of a haul. Just about 5 hours south of Niterói by car, it took us nearly 7 hours and three buses to reach our destination. It was a pleasant adventure. The "Costa Verde" (green coast) is a beautiful drive.
