Guarapari is a very popular holiday escape for people from landlocked Minas Gerais state as well as people from Vitória and Vila Velha. The place is fervent between Christmas and Carnaval, with smaller peaks on school holidays throughout the year.
Guarapari has a small domestic airport with no regular passenger traffic.
Vitória Airport (VIX) - also known as Eurico Salles Airport - in the capital city of Vitória, is the closest airport to Guarapari. It receives daily flights from most state capitals in the country. Among the main airlines serving the airport are TAM  and Gol . A number of smaller carriers also serve the airport, including Azul , TEAM , and TRIP .
A taxi to/from Vitória Airport will set you back about R$ 120. The fastest way to reach the airport by bus is to take a bus Alvorada to Vila Velha, get off near Terminal Vila Velha, and to take a local bus from there. Total travel time is about 2 hours, and it costs around R$ 10.
The bus station is in the commercial district of Moquiçaba, between Praia do Morro and downtown (walking distance to both). Main lines include Vitória (some via Vila Velha), Rio de Janeiro, and Belo Horizonte.
The bus company Alvorada has their own little terminal two blocks away from the bus station. They run hourly buses (more frequent during peak hours) to Vitória via Vila Velha, until 9 pm.
Guarapari is situated on the coast 53 kilometers south of Vitória on highway 60, officially nicknamed Rodovia do Sol. There is also easy access from BR-101.
Many local buses run throughout the night. Taxis are few on Praia do Morro. None have meters, but there should be a table available showing fixed prices between different neighbourhoods.
