    Nothing like enjoying the visual da serra River Trail before or after it. We took a day of clean sky ... the look is awesome.

Where to stay in Bom Jardim da Serra

The outdoorsy spirit of the town has been nicely reflected in some of the more popular accommodations located here, with rustic and character-filled lodges, homely and humble pousadas (guesthouses), and ecologically-aware resorts. Following the main arterial road west or east reveals the most popular hideaways, with many accommodations occupying secluded areas within the hills and valleys of the region. During peak season, pre-booking for the duration of your stay is essential.
