SirVerity has indicated that this thread is about Ilha Grande

I will will be visiting Ilha Grande from Rio in March and heard that the easiest (and quickest) way to get there is to get off the bus in Conceicao de Jacarei instead of going all the way into Angra Dos Reis. Would anyone else recommend this course?

The only course I know is the one going to Angra dos Reis. You can catch a bus at Novo Rio Bus Station. It takes about 3h to get to Angra. Then you take a boat or a ferry to Ilha Grande.
Anyway, that's a quite nice place for camping, trekking, or just getting in touch with nature.

Yes the bus service is the quickest means by which one can reach lha Grande from Rio in March.
