If your trip to Ilhabela is all booked but your itinerary is a bit on the empty side, we can give you a helping hand.
Plan a stop at Cel. Juliao Square. It's one sight you'll find on many visitors' to-do lists. If you still have some room on that travel schedule, Igreja Matriz em Ilhabela Plaza and Vila Beach will keep you occupied, too.
The joy of having a car is that you can travel anywhere, anytime. Make full use of your freedom by exploring all there is to do in Paraty. It's just 56 miles away. Tamoios Ecological Station, Saco da Velha Cave and Vermelha Beach alone justify the drive out here. The locals will also probably point you toward Campos do Jordao, 53 miles away. If you only have time for one thing here, make sure it's Via Vale Garden Shopping. (But we're also big fans of Universidade de Taubate and Taubate Shopping Center.)
Nothing screams vacation like hopping in the car, putting on some tunes and driving to the seaside. Ilhabela has some lovely beaches nearby, so bring along a book (and a kite if it's breezy) and set off to one of these well-known options:

With your own set of wheels, Ilhabela is all yours to discover. People journey to this city for a variety of reasons, and here at CarRentals.com we have an unique car for each of them. A key priority for large families is space. Depending on the number of family members, that could mean anything from a full-size vehicle to a 12-passenger van. Thrifty travelers usually prefer the fuel-efficiency of our smaller cars, such as an economy or a mini. If you're looking to turn some heads in Ilhabela, you could even check out our special category for a vehicle that will make any car aficionado dizzy with excitement.
You'll be pleased to hear that there's a broad range of both economy and luxury rental vehicles available in Ilhabela. What you end up going with depends on how much you want to spend and what you're planning to do. Specialty vehicles are all about mod cons and comfort. If you want to indulge yourself, why not pick a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps a stylish mid-size sedan? Otherwise, if you're just after a car to get from A to B at the cheapest price possible, go for a budget compact vehicle (or something else that won't burn a hole in your wallet).
