This Pousada is a remodeled farm house artfully redecorated by Rubia; her husband Joaquin is full of information and genorosity. He let us us stash our gear after checking out, let us come back and not only change clothes but shower too. Then he gave us some juice and food before we went on our way. A very gnerous host indeed. Our room was a tad small, but had a balcony. Nice grounds, there is a pool, great breakfasts (as everywhere in Brazil).
We were very close to the entrance to Serra de Cipo National Park; the 8 mile hike to La Forofa waterfall is great. We also drove about 2 hrs to hike to El Tabuleiro, a ver spectacular fall, third highest in Brazil. Take a guide for that if you go--very strenuous, probably a 800 foot down cimb to get there and then the same back up.
