“A Fantastic Step Back in Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2008

I had read some reviews about the Island of Boipeba, but really didn't know what to expect. Taking the boat from Valenca and then no cars or taxis to haul our luggage, only young men with wheelbarrows was an eyeopener. Arrived at Horizonte Azul and I was just blown away by the location, setting and the very friendly staff. What was intended to be a 3 day stay ended up being for 7 days and it was just super. Cris and the rest of her family and staff were so nice, the breakfast every morning was always different and excellent and eggs cooked to order was a first for me in Brasil.
The whole island setting was so unique and special, it was like stepping back to a South Sea island or some tropical paradise pre WW II. The beach, the village, the local people were just tremendous, and it was a living and working community. Food was outstanding, seafood so fresh and good, I never saw meat the whole time I was there. And being next door to Pousada Santa Clara with its fantastic dinners was another plus. Mark in the kitchen delivered the best pasta I had in Brasil.
Walking the beaches, enjoying the ocean and the tides, swimming, and just people watching was so relaxing. I cannot wait to return.
The Horizonte Azul does it all to perfection and I would recommend this Pousada to anyone.
And for one who has very minimal Portuguese like myself, Cris being able to speak English is real plus.
This was one of my great vacation getaways ever.

I was there the last part of November, 2008

Cristina, her french husband and charming mother together with a friendly staff, run this little piece of paradise in the per se paradisiacal Boipeba. Horizonte Azul has six nice chalets located in a beautiful garden, all with terrace with armchairs and hammock, where every afternoon tee, coffee and incense sticks were renewed. A little "pergola" overlooking the park invites to yoga or meditation. No direct sea view, but we didn't miss it; the park offers a spectacle of plants, flowers and birds. We had friendly smiles and local varieties every morning for breakfast (stayed for two weeks and still they were always surpinsing us with some different pastry or new exotic juice). Just 3 min. walk to the main beach of Boipeba village. There were no dining facilities as we stayed there, but at the also very friendly posada Santa Clara, just nearby, we could indulge with a couple of good dinner meals at their beautiful, jungle sorrounded restaurant. We loved it. (Stayed in March 2007).
