The beautiful and elegant Pousada Santa Esmeralda is located at an ecological paradise only 10.5 miles from the city of Bonito. The pousada's close proximity to the bright waters of the region's Formoso River makes it an ideal location for travelers wishing to experience adventurous Brazil with its beautiful waterfalls, natural pool for swimming, and area for free-diving.

Pousada Santa Esmeralda was designed to respect the local architecture and landscape and prioritizes rustic style, creating a private and peaceful contact with nature. The pousada features 18 suites and guests may choose to either stay in a Premium Suite, Bungalow Suite, or the Chalet.

Premium Suites accommodate up to 5 guests and offer wide rooms, sofa bunk-bed, and balcony with a hammock. The suites are ideal for families or groups of friends. Bungalow Suites feature two independent suites which are not linked to one another. The bungalows are equipped with mezzanine, living room, and balcony with hammock, and are perfect for family groups. The Chalet includes two suites and can accommodate up to 6 guests.

Each of the suite options are modern and very comfortable.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
