How to get from the airport to Costa da Caparica? There are at least three alternatives:

  • By taxi. This is the most convenient way, although more expensive than the alternatives. The fare should be around 30-35 euros. Please note that if you arrive at Lisbon's rush hour (from 18h00 to 20h30) you will probably have to endure the traffic jam while crossing the bridge.
  • By bus & boat & bus. Take the Carris Aerobus 91 to Cais do Sodré. Then, get into the ferry boat to Cacilhas. Finally, take the TST bus 124, or 135 from Cacilhas to Costa da Caparica. The latter is less frequent, but faster. The hotel is within a walking distance from the bus terminal.
  • By bus & train & bus. Take the Carris Aerobus 91 to Entrecampos, then take the Fertagus train from Entrecampos to Pragal, and finally take the TST bus 124. The hotel is within a walking distance from the bus terminal.
In the end, coming by taxi, if you are traveling in a group, might not be that more expensive than the alternatives, in which you have to buy individual tickets for each part of the trip. Also note that last Aerobus leaves the airport at 20:45.

Our recommendations are: if you arrive early, not carrying a lot of luggage and the weather is nice, use the second alternative.  On the ferry you will enjoy a great view of Lisbon from the river. If you arrive late, take the taxi.
