Guess what? Búzios is also named and spelled Armação dos Búzios - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.
Búzios (Armação dos Búzios), Brazil, could be called the Beverly Hills of Rio de Janeiro, thanks to its downtown center full of options of restaurants, clubs, bars, and shopping (from fancy brands to local craftsmanship) for all kinds of people and tastes. It is a really popular destination for cariocas (Rio de Janeiro locals), expats, and foreigners in general.
There are several daily buses from Rio de Janeiro to the city and about three direct connections from Sao Paulo. From Rio de Janeiro it takes about two and a half hours without traffic; in the high season, this time can be doubled. From Sao Paulo it takes around nine hours.
There are different beach options, and they are recommended according to what you are looking for. Young people, hipsters, and those looking for the buzz will find Geriba to be a great choice, mainly in the highest point of summer season (January-February). It is also the surfers' paradise, due to its waves -- it's perfect for beginners and those looking for surfing classes. There are several Búzios (Armação dos Búzios), Brazil hostel options on this area. For families, Ferradura and Ferradurinha offer good water quality to swim, with few waves.
Additionally, it is really safe here compared to Rio de Janeiro, although public transportation does not work the best, and renting a car is recommended in order to explore the whole region. If driving is not an option, taxis can be called from your accommodation, or it is possible to use the "van transportation" system, where a minivan gathered around up to ten people takes them from one beach to another. For the nightlife, the surrounding Rua das Pedras area provides bars, clubs, and restaurants with an amazing view. If you are interested in clubbing, finding a Búzios (Armação dos Búzios), Brazil hostel in this area may be an option.
There is a good range of taste, style, and budget for Búzios (Armação dos Búzios), Brazil hostels and accommodations; the best ones sell out quickly and especially during peak times such as New Years' Eve (late December/early January); Carnival (middle of February); and the Jazz Festival, which takes place in July.

Buzios is a small resort town with a bunch of mediocre hotels, restaurants, and it's full of old people and mothers pushing baby buggies. This town is overhyped and needs a facelift.
