A most comfortable lodge in a splendid location. The view from the lodge looks over the stunning mountains clothed in forests many planted by the conservation project that operates here. The large pretentious canopy hide does distract from the view but does provide excellent views over the reclaimed wetland. Staff are friendly and the food excellent, all local and fresh....

The Guapi Assu Bird Lodge is a great place to stay. Run by Nicholas and Raquel, this couple has done so much to help conserve this stunning area of Atlantic Rainforest. The lodge itself is not too large and is comfortable and welcoming. The views from the lodge across to the forest covered hills are lovely. The food was excellent...

This is an excellent example of eco-tourism with revenue from guests at the lodge contributing to the running of a fantastic rain forest project. Under the leadership of manager, Nicholas, 160,000 trees have been planted here over the past 10 years restoring former farmland to valuable rain forest and wetland. The wetland is very close to the lodge and there...

This is a fantastic place and very easy to access from Rio. We stayed for 5 nights in June and could have stayed much longer. Whilst I think many people go in Sep/Oct, June was great for us as it was really quiet- we were the only people there for two nights and it really felt like we had the...

I just returned from a whirlwind tour of several eco-lodges in Brazil and Guapi Assu, our first and most luxurious stop, was such an amazing place to visit. Nicholas and Raquel are warm, wonderful hosts who are so inspirational in their commitment to conservation. They have created something really special at the lodge which is staffed by friendly, hard-working, lovely...

Recently went there with my 5 year old daughter. We loved wandering the trails and paths, it is an amazing Garden of Eden! Saw so many birds, frogs, bugs, butterflies, a sleeping sloth, a porcupine, and more. The house and rooms is lovely and well kept, the hosts and staff very warm and caring. I recommend it for non-professional bird...

We just returned from 7 days in paradise at Guapi Assu. Fantastic hosts in Nicholas and Rachel and wonderful accomodation. Loved the Caipihrainias at the end of a long birding day. Leo our guide was tremendous, knowing every little peep and calling in some great birds. The sunrises were spectacular and every day was packed with more and more birds,...

Regua is one for the bucket list. We only spent three days there but could have spent weeks, and will definitely go back. The charm of Regua is that it offers so much: incredible birding, hiking into the mountains in search of the woolly spider monkey (one of the world’s rarest primates), leisurely walks around the wetlands and into the...

Hosted by the knowledgeable and charismatic Nicholas Locke, and his wife Racquel, the bird lodge stands in one of the few areas of Atlantic Rainforest. AREGUA are striving to preserve the existing stands of primary forest and to restore deforested and wetland areas. Accommodation was clean and comfortable and set in a well maintained garden with swimming pool and views...

A great place to stay and wonderful project to restore the wetlands behind the lodge. Food good and plentiful, lots of variety. Friendly staff, rooms air conditioned and clean and comfortable. Skilled birding guides and helpful generous owners and operators. Swimming in the pool while listening to Tawny- browed Owls calling at night!
