Quinta do Bucanero is an intimate, service-orientated guesthouse built into a hillside near the beach in Praia do Rosa, one of the most beautiful and, in season, the most hip, stretches of sand in southern Brazil. 

Quinta do Bucanero is an intimate, service-orientated guesthouse built into a hillside near the beach in Praia do Rosa.  Its 10 apartments are all of one standard  - and except for minor differences in décor, identical. All have air-con, ceiling fan, private bathroom and balcony with hammock and ocean views. Communal areas are decorated in a local rustic style with lots of wood and stone, with some exotic Asian motifs. Facilities include a restaurant/bar, an outdoor Jacuzzi with small pool, and TV/games room.

Access to the beach is through a wide, well marked (but steep) trail through lush vegetation and around a small lagoon that's good for swimming.

The hotel is 90mins' drive from state capital, Florianopólis with the final 20 mins along a dirt road.

    MM, Ascot
  • Most memorable experience: "The contrast between city, wildlife and the beach."

    JB, Leicester
  • Most Memorable Moment?: We were lucky enough to have a major thunder storm overnight at the Iguazu falls and these were unbelievably spectacular the next day.  Also the Lencois Marahenas was utterly beautiful and quite different to anything else we saw.

    KT, Andover
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Probably seeing river otters at Pousada do Rio Mutum but we really liked the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls too. 

    SS, Teddington
  • Wow, so many it's hard to choose the most memorable aspect. Sunrise on the lake in the Pantanal was just wonderful. The exhilaration of standing at the devil's throat on the Argentinian side of Iguacu falls. Having the Brazilian Iguacu trail all to ourselves at sunset, when the park was closed but we could still stroll out of our hotel and soak up the view. Seeing wild toucans at Iguacu. Having a family of capybaras living outside our hut in the Pantanal and seeing wild macaws and howler monkeys. We had a great time on the plane from Salvador to Morro de Sao Paulo - tiny but brilliant views and very exciting. We also loved our boat trip around the islands and beaches near Paraty. We took a small sailing boat which made it extremely peaceful. The boat trip at Iguacu was also fantastic but be warned you do get completely soaked. Having a hot tub in our living room at Vila dos Orixas!
