Is it advisable to rent a car in Rio drive to Angra dos Reis to take a boat to Ilha Grande. Leave the car a few days in Angra and then retrurn to Rio;
Any advice welcome
Yes - bus. We borrowed a car from a friend for our last trip, and - after quite a few years away from Latin American driving - found it both confusing (poor road signage) and scary (other road users' behaviour). Let someone else do the driving!
i would definitely recommend getting the bus, was only a couple of hours all in. i have also heard you can hire a small plane to make the journey even quicker!
