We stayed at a little pousada run by a french guy and his german girlfriend, it was a nice cheap little place and they were very nice. Even gave us lessons on Caprinha making. We made the trip across with a bout 5 others and we all stayed at this place, so it was good.
Morro de Sao Paulo is situated on the edge of quite a large island and has beaches stretching out from the town on two sides. The island has no cars or bikes, just dirt roads with wheelbarrows used as the main form of transport.
The only thing we did the whole time there apart from lazing on the beach was to take a day trip to another small town called Bopeiba around the other side of the island. We jumped in the little boast and took off for the day, again more beaches, food and drink, just a different location. The trip was really good and was topped off, especially for sarah by stopping at a little pontoon on the way back to Morro where they farmed oysters. They pulled them straight out of the water, craked them open and they're ready to eat. Apparently they were magnificant, but i didn't try (not an oyster man), also at 1 real each (60 cent Aus) a bargain.
Disappointing had to leave after about four days here, could have stayed here for weeks.
