The last weekend getaway I was able to do when I was in Brazil just before the pandemic hit, was in the area of Sao Paulo, about two hours away into the mountains towards São Bento do Sapucaí, staying at the gorgeous jungle retreat Pousada Refugio Mantiqueira.
Lovely little huts, plenty of chill out places, a great lounge, a remarkable breakfast, and plenty of waterfall hike trails nearby. You can even get your massage right next to a waterfall, it’s that nice.
I spent a couple of nights there, exploring the area, exploring the jungle, really enjoying this retreat, having no idea that it’s likely to be my last one in Brazil. So very glad I got to experience this, looking forward to more adventures whenever I can finally make it back to Brazil.
