Pousada Picinguaba



Pousada Picinguaba is situated in a calm and peaceful bay at the heart of the Natural Park of "Mata Atlantica", the tropical coastal forest running between Rio and São Paulo, and about 30 minutes drive south of Paraty. With 4km of deserted beach a few steps away the fishing village of Picinguaba sits on an unspoilt bay with views across crystal clear turquoise water - this hip hotel is hidden away at the end of the village up a path which can only be accessed by foot (250m up a hill). A charming rustic-chic hotel in an exceptional location, ideal for enjoying the surrounding nature and the local way of life; a limited number of rooms means Pousada Picinguaba retains an exclusive allure and allows for both a high quality and an individual service for all of their guests, whether you come for a romantic break or with a larger group of family or friends. In addition, we would like to put a mention on winter at Pousada Picinguaba (May-October), the new best time to come. With a little help from global warming, over the past few years, this region in Brazil has become a fantastic destination for the winter months - May to October. Little rain, beautifully sunny most of the time, cooler nights.


Thankfully there are no TVs or CD players or internet but there is air-conditioning in the rooms allowing guests utmost tranquility and escapism. Guests can snorkel, ride, take a boat trip or visit the famous and charming town of Paraty which is 30 minutes away.  Private schooner, Surf board rental and classes and kayaks are also available and much more: Fishing, Hiking, Historical sites, Plantlife/flora, Scuba diving, Trekking, Yoga, Massage and accupuncture.



The restaurant serves fresh authentic Brazilian food with some of the best fish in the area, caught daily by the local fishermen and fresh organic products from their farm, Fazenda Catuçaba.  Guests eat in the dining room or in the garden near the swimming pool and help themselves to dinner from the large dining table
