Hotel Policies

  Macaé belongs to the northern region of Rio de Janeiro, which also includes the municipalities of Campos dos Goytacazes, Carapebus, Cardoso Moreira, Conceição de Macabu, Quissamã, Mumbai, São Francisco de Itabapoana and São João da Barra. The city has a total area of 1,216 square kilometers, equivalent to 12.5% of the total area of the region North of Rio de Janeiro. The County is divided into six districts named Sede, Cachoeiros, Macaé, Corrego de Ouro, Glicério, Frade and Sana.

Macaé is located at a latitude of -22° 37 ´ 08 "and longitude -41° ´ 78 69" and is bordered by the towns of Carapebus, Conceição de Macabu, North; Rio das Ostras and Casimiro de Abreu, South; Trajano de Morais and Nova Friburgo, West; and the Atlantic Ocean to the East.

With 23 miles of coastline, the climate is hot and humid throughout the year withtemperatures ranging between 18ºc and 30ºc, considerable temperature variation caused by changing winds between the coast and the hills, relatively close.

With a privileged location, 182 kilometers from the State capital, Macaé has an airport and a good road infrastructure, with direct connection to the BR-101, the country's main highway, and now privatised.

The city is crossed by two major state highways-the RJ-106 (Amaral Peixoto) and RJ-168 (of oil). The RJ-106 travels round the coast of Rio das Ostras to Carapebus, crossing the center of the city. The RJ-168 bisects the city from East to West, by the BR-101, following up the entrance to the Municipal Park of Atalaia. The 168 reaches Conceição de Macabu, to the North, and Rio das Ostras, South. The RJ-162 gives access to the districts of Cachoeiros, Macaé, Glicério and Frade. The Highway extends from Rio Dourado(Rio das Ostras) until Tapera (Trajano de Moraes).

Highway Rio de Janeiro Brazil, belonging to the OHL system, is the concessionaire that since 2008 administers the highway BR-101, between the border of the States of Rio de Janeiro and Espírito Santo and Rio-Niterói bridge. The expectation is that over the next four years are initiated the doubling of Highway BR-101 in the stretch that connects the city to Rio de Janeiro. Macaé
