With small monkeys, butterflies, a swimmingpool what is great after a day in salty water. The best breakfast in Brazil till this this far. With a buffet with fruit, juices,...

We stayed at La Bonita during our last weekend in Brasil -- after 2 years in Sao Paulo. It is a small, quaint place in a quiet town -- the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beach. The owners were welcoming, the staff was very friendly and the food was great. Be sure to arrange for a buggy trip...

My wife and I have been lucky enough to travel to many wonderful places. We don't have kids to worry about and work from home, so all we need is a good wifi connection to relocate for a month or so. Brazil is a favorite destination, as we're both surfers and love warm water. What can we say about Pousada...

A beautiful Pousada with stunning views, lovely rooms, great pool and bar facing the Ocean. Alicia, the owner, organized our trip by buggy from Praia de pipa (1.30h/280 reals). We loved the tranquility of this small laid-back fishing village after the very (far too much for us!) buzzy touristy town of Pipa. Prices are not cheap but well worth it....
