Santos Port Shuttles
SDU airport transfers
Along the north side of Brazil’s water-surrounded city of Santos, the Port of Santos is not only the main arrival point for ferries departing and arriving, but the main cruise terminal for major ships passing through the narrow Estuary of Saints. If not able to anchor along the port’s docking area, smaller ships can tender passengers ashore with ease. Public transportation consists of the Tourist Tram, a historic trolley that offers various downtown drop offs at a slow-moving pace as well as various scenic inclines, one drop off including the large Tourist Information building half a mile into downtown. Choose from one of many rideshare options for more freedom, whether it be through the simplicity of basic sedans or spacious chartered buses perfect for arriving to wherever, or casual meet-and-greet services that offer an array of drop offs ranging from the easygoing nature of local personal drivers to high-end lifts courtesy of chauffeured limousines.
Separated by downtown Sao Paulo from a vast mountain range, the waterside foothills of Santos offer more than enough unique beauty to enjoy a full day with small crowds. Close to the north side’s cruise terminal is the Pelé Museum, a famous meeting point due to its close access to the trolley system’s start, as well as an array of artifacts dedicated to the locally famous soccer player. The Coffee Museum is down the street as well, offering a taste test and vast rooms that explore the country’s local history with the coffee bean. Continue south toward Santos’ Embaré neighborhood for scenic lawns and tree-lined pathways leading to Embaré Beach, cool landmarks along the sandy waterfront including the Pinacoteca Benedito Calixto Art Gallery, as well as acclaimed exotic aquariums intertwined with vibrant plants at the Orquidário Municipal de Santos. Restaurants worthy of conversation include the vibrant Portuguese cuisine at Tosca do Porto, or festive Latin-American cuisine in Embaré’s D'Boa Latino.
