There’s a small swimming pool shaded by palm trees and a good restaurant with breezy patio seating, a lovely spot to enjoy an al fresco Brazilian-style breakfast before heading out to explore the city and the beautiful beaches nearby. While eating out on the terrace in the open, be it in the morning or in the evening, surrounded by the gardens full of bright Brazilian flowers feels like dining in paradise – truly romantic.
Why staying here: Pousada do Amparo is a colonial hotel and a charming little place with great decor and settings. It’s well-situated to explore the old town, and there’s a super Bodega de Veio across the cobbled street where you can enjoy a chilled beer, some great music.
