Pousada Lagoa do Cassange

Pousada Lagoa do Cassange occupies a narrow strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and a calm, shallow freshwater lake, in a beautiful unspoilt landscape characterised by pristine, palm-fringed sandy beaches, Atlantic rainforest, traditional communities and coconut groves.

Constructed along environmentally sensitive principles, Pousada Lagoa do Cassange offers comfortable detached bungalows and a family guesthouse, all having private bathrooms with solar heated showers, CD player, minibar, ceiling fan, air cooler, and verandah with hammocks. To the front is a wild golden-sand beach and behind is a calm freshwater lagoon offering safe swimming and kayaking when water levels permit.

Delicious food is a particular feature of the pousada – breakfast and dinner are included and cooked with fresh ingredients sourced from local fishermen and a nearby organic farm.
A range of activities are offered, from boat trips and 4×4 excursions to swimming, snorkelling and kayaking.

Those looking for an all-inclusive resort experience should not choose Pousada Lagoa do Cassange. However, for travellers seeking pristine beaches well away from the crowds that are found further north, great food and an insight in to traditional coastal life, Pousada Lagoa do Cassange is hard to beat!

The experience at the Pantanal Wildlife Centre & Jaguar Research Centre was outstanding. Our guide Benedicto was first class – he knew all the fauna, especially the birds and clearly loved them and could not wait to show us everything he knew. We saw the Tapirs at the mango tree (twice), coati, too many birds to list all, at pace which was perfect. At the Jaguar Research Centre the staff did an outstanding job and, OK the camp was not luxurious but WHO CARES? when you have a chance to see the jaguar, and we in fact saw seven. ALL of which were fantastic views, not just a blip in the distance.
