Where to stay in Morro de Sao Paulo

A good set of pousadas (guesthouses) and small hotels nestle up as close as they can to Morro de Sao Paulo's main beach areas, offering rooms to suit a variety of budgets and tastes. Some enjoy additional facilities, such as outdoor pools, bars, and restaurants, and one of the primary concerns for visitors is securing a sea view. However, if you're looking to spend more time outside than in, you'll find plenty of affordable rooms throughout the atmospheric little village. Come peak season (December to March), however, big crowds mean that free rooms are scarce, so book ahead.

  • You cannot walk to the ruinas as of November 2016. The road leading to it is under reconstruction. Unknown when it will reopen.  more »
  • For sure, the Goverment in 2010 promissed a MUSEUM and the place is still a ruin of a ruin?! The most beautiful sundown of Bahia, go to see and imagine and ASK about the museum...  more »
  • Is a historical and cultural treasure of Morro. A shame to be closed for restoration when we visited (Aug/2016). Want waaaay have known. Looks good on the Hill (to the left of the Portal).
