We may return to Brazil just so we can stay at Pousada Guarana. Decorated with a decidedly feng shui, Hindi, Buddhist theme, the lodgings feel like a tropical monastery completely separate from the stress and worries of life. The breakfast doubled or tripled our expectations, and the owner/hosts were both inspiring and friendly, enough so that we felt like we'd... More

After working for a month in Rio, my boyfriend and I decided to go to Paraty for a couple of days before heading home. Pousada Guarana was AWESOME! We had such a nice and relaxing time. The Pousada is clean, quiet and the David and Jimena are so well organized. David helped us plan trips just about every day and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way to Trindade. David and Jimena were excellent hosts, David had lots of great advice and helped us booked buses and trips around the area. The pousada is very tastefully decorated with beautiful wood furnishings and the beds are very comfortable. Although it is a little bit out of town and a... More

A Pousada which has been designed, built and furnished with enormous love and care - an unexpected oasis in a very quiet part of Paraty that is easy to access from the coast road. From the minute you arrive the owners - David and Jamina - ensure you feel really welcome and put time and effort into ensuring that you... More

An absolute paradise of a stay. David and Jimena are the most amazing hosts you could ever have as a traveler. They helped plan our transportation to the hotel and filled our time in Paraty with the best of the area! David hand drew us maps of the area just so we knew where to go exactly. On our last...

Such a great experience here. My boyfriend and I stayed in March 2015 and had the best time. David and Jimena are wonderful hosts and couldn't have been more helpful. The property is really cute and different and the rooms are very nice. The breakfasts that Jimena made were so tasty and probably the best breakfasts we were served in... More

Our stay at Pousada Guarana was fantastic, and I recommend it highly. David and Jimena proved to be unbelievably helpful hosts even before our arrival in Paraty. We had trouble using an international credit card to reserve a bus from SP, and subsequently found out that the bus had sold out. We called Pousada Guarana and David promptly helped us... More

We had a fabulous experience. The inn is so charming, eclectic and interesting. The most gracious owners we have ever experienced - David and Jimena. They could not have been more relaxed and welcoming. We walked in and said "ahhhhhhhh." We felt the same way after staying for a week. On our last night we took David and Jimena out... More
