Pousada Picinguaba is the only pousada of note in this beautiful village. The colonial style building set amongst the trees on the hillside offers breathtaking views out across the beach and sea.

The large pool and sundeck have been constructed to take advantage of this vista, and offer a superb place to relax and take in the surroundings in total comfort. This has got to be one of the best pool side views in South America.

The rooms are simply, but tastefully furnished, each with their own private balcony. There is one honeymoon suite which has its own jacuzzi and stunning views across the bay.

The staff are excellent and will do everything they can to make your stay more enjoyable and help you organise further activities to explore the area, including schooner trips, walks through the rainforest and kayaking amongst others.

The colonial style construction of the pousada and its idyllic location mean that certain amenities are unnecessary or seem out of place. Thus there is no air conditioning (but this really isn’t required due to the cool breezes from the forest and shoreline) and no mini bar or televisions in the room. But all this adds to the feeling of restful seclusion.
