I found this pousada here on TripAdvisor. Read the reviews, saw the photos, but wasn't sure if it would be as nice as everyone said. And yes, it was that nice! The place is impeccably kept -- everything is white or off-white and it looks brand new. We stayed 2 nights and my biggest regret of our 3 week trip to Brazil is that we didn't spend more time in Paraty, and specifically at this beautiful pousada. It was a slice of heaven. John is friendly and outgoing and makes you feel like a special guest in his home. Although he sees hundreds of guests a year, you would never know it -- he acts like you are the first and only one. It rained while we were in Paraty but that didn't stop us from enjoying the area. John gave great recommendations on places to go and restaurants to eat at. We really could have spent 4 or 5 days there and been THRILLED. Thank you John for your hospitality!
