“Far from everything - Beautiful - Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2009

I went to the remote village of Corumbau with my girlfriend hoping to unwind from the stress of daily life – something I hadn’t been able to accomplish for a very long time. This place is a fantastic escape from it all, and the bonus is that it’s in an utterly beautiful location!

The guest house is in the middle of a small fishing village, sandwiched between a spectacular beach and a huge river, complete with mangroves. The village is friendly and quiet, and completely genuine (it’s not touristy), and the whole area is teeming with wildlife.

Being in a hot climate, the guest house is quite open and airy, and with the sea breeze and the mangroves it’s surprisingly cool. However, during our stay we were in the middle of mosquito season, so bring some mosquito repellent.

Being so open, and since the whole area is sandy, the house tends to get quite sandy too, but it is cleaned daily so it's not such a big problem. Mosquito nets are provided for the beds so you don't get bitten all night!

Getting to the guest house is both difficult and adventurous in its own right due to the remoteness, however there are a number of options available, even including helicopter from Porto Seguro if you have a bit of extra cash spare! On the way there we took a combination of car, ferry, dune buggy and kayak.

On the way back we realised that the most expensive part of the trip was the flight to Brazil, which wasn’t really all that expensive from Belgium in the first place, so we decided to take a small six-seater plane back to Porto Seguro. Ultimately once you’re there you won’t be spending your money like you would in a resort.

My only regret is that the two weeks we spent there just weren’t enough – I didn’t want to leave; I had managed to unwind and de-stress so quickly there.
