Excellent little Posada run by a couple; a Frenchman and a Brazilian.....so you have access to excellent French cuisine (infused in the breakfast) and warm braziilian hospitality. Only few rooms (four I think); Caretakers are multilingual and speak decent English. Very nicely stylish decorated rooms and ambience and beautiful deck overlooking river on the backend of the Posada. Pleasantly surprising... More

What a wonderful find! The location was breathtaking, whereby they served amazing morning breakfast along the veranda overlooking the river. The rooms are charming, clean and very comfortable. We sensed the owners love what they do as all the little details made our stay most delightful. We hope to return.

If you're looking for a nice and pleasant stay in Paraty, the Pousada Caminho de Ouro offers exactly what you need. Clean and cozy room, amazing breakfast, and a very gentle staff. It's not in a posh area of Paraty, so if location is a "must" for you, please choose another b&b in the city center. This one is located... More

Certainly the greatest discovery of our trip to Brazil. My friends and I booked 3 rooms right after Christmas and wanted a change from the classic near beach accomodations to something a bit more special or exclusive. We opted for Caminho do Ouro as it seemed more in touch with the local culture and located just outside central Paraty which... More

We choose this B&B because of the great tripadvisor ratings. Maybe that's why we were a little disappointed. Positive points The accommodation was nice, if a little basic.

I went there last weekend with my husband, and everything was perfect. Marvelous place, perfect food, and best treatment by owners. And Paraty is very close, and very easy to leave your car in a parking area, so you can stay there, and enjoy your stay, and will not be a problem to go to downtown. The restaurant was amazing.
