Aquario Pousada - Hostel Ilha Grande Reviews
Hidden Gem Sep 03, 2008
I would have never know this place existed if I hadn't read about it in my Lonely Planet travel book. When you get off the boat dock turn left and walk down the beach, across the stream, to the end of the beach, up a path, then arrive at the Aquario.
They have a "natural" pool, hammocks, bar with great tropical drinks, complimentary breakfast, and very sweet staff.
When we arrived there I thought it was a little pricey, but once we went to a few places to price check, this was by far the best deal around. Luckily we knew exactly where it was and made it back before the rest of the people from the boat made their way down to it. We got the last room available, the CAPITAN room!
The staff way very friendly and even came up to our room at night to capture a giant insect, which turned out to be a firefly, which let me tell you, looks NOTHING like a fly!
They also have connections with people to take you to the white sand beach on the other side of the island.
