A wonderful spot for birding a couple of hours outside Rio! The owner, Andy, is a fun, engaging and very knowledgeable guide. The rooms are very nice. Nothing fancy, but well cared for, comfortable, and clean. Meals are very good, and again, nothing pretentious. Just good food. The back veranda looks over the lawn to feeding stations that bring in... More

Great place for birders. Andy the ownership has got a little piece of paradise in the sort after Atlantic Rainforest. Warm and friendly place. Andy and the staff are always at hand and nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are good. Although just off the main road, the noise from the traffic is minimal. Each evening and lunch there is... More

My wife and I spent eight days here, having arranged an inclusive package (accommodation in a room overlooking the garden and birdfeeders, all meals, and guided birding excursions each day) directly with Andy, the owner. The small lodge (sleeping a maximum of 14) is extremely comfortable and serves excellent home-cooked food. Our room was very clean, with a good hot... More

My wife and I had a marvelous time at this lovely lodge in the Atlantic rain forest. The austral autumn turned out to be a great time to visit, as the lodge was less crowded than in the spring. The programmed itinerary was adjusted to our needs, and bird guide Cirilo helped us find some very difficult species. Our room... More

Location along a busy and noisy road. But let's be honest. Most of Brazil sounds like this. Free cachaça at 5.30 pm. Choice from 8 different brands. Artificial fruit juice. Absolutely incredible, every Brazilian b&b, bar or restaurant has a stock of frozen portions of exotic fruits, allowing them to make tasty fruit juices. And most of them have a... More

My husband and I have just returned from a four-night stay here. We were really looking forward to going having seen the Malcolm Ryder DVD about the place and read glowing reports. In retrospect, we would have been better staying for longer at REGUA and just spending one or maybe two nights here to investigate the grounds and feeders. Firstly,... More

Andy Foster, the English proprietor was very helpful in assisting me to put together a tour of Brazil in August'12; apart from accommodating my wife and I at Serra dos Tucanos he also went out of his way to put me in touch with other reliable guides and tours throughout Brazil- Ubatuba,Itatiaia,Iguazu,Chapada and the Pantanal ( I wish I'd taken...

I had the pleasure of staying at this lodge for seven nights this March. and found the experience utterly delightful. Travelers that stay at the "Serra do Tucanos" must be aware that this establishment is designed particularly for the birding enthusiast and that is where it really excels. Throughout the grounds and on the side of the actual building there... More

The lodge is within the Tres Picos State Park and owned by a friendly and helpful English couple Andy and Christina. We stayed here for 10 days in October 2011 on an organised birdwatching tour. All of our food and day trips were included in the price. We went out each day to various habitats with the lodge English speaking... More
