We stumbled across this bar last night looking for a good spot to watch the sunset. The layout of the bar is very chilled and directly on the beach. We took advantage of happy hour cocktails and enjoyed them while watching the beautiful Sunset. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The vibe was very chilled. Enjoy!!!

Me, my partner and two friends just had a very nice dinner at Itauna Rancho. Three of us took the Brasilian Tuna with coconut and peneautsauce. Fresh fish, good spices. Very nice table by the beach framed by a fantastique sunset. Friendly service. We had drinks and wine plus typical Brasilian desserts that tasted pretty sweet but good. Cost 60K...

“Choose an upstairs room if you can, the balcony is a nice hang out spot. BTW these rooms can comfortably fit up to 4 people, so split the cost instead of staying in a hostel.”
