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 up his suggestion for the latter!).
The stay at Serra dos Tucanos was excellent - it is located within a national park with good birding on the trails and many fabulous birds frequent the well maintained gardens and the feeders. With Cirilo as a great bird guide we also took some wonderful excursions to different terrains within easy driving distance. The lodge itself is set in beautiful surroundings with a large veranda where you can relax and watch the birds and the friendly staff provide very good food, service and accommodation.
We would certainly recommend Serra dos Tucanos for birding and relaxation within driving distance of Rio; Andy arranged for us to be picked up by Eugenio who provided a wonderful 2 day tour of Rio including not only the major sights but also great birding in the Botanic Gardens and Tijuca Park.
