  • Description


    Located in the best spot of Itaguá Bay , this is a mini hostel (16 beds) built in a restored fishermen 1950's house.

    Only 30 meters away from the Itagua beach, travellers can walk to another 5 different beaches (trendy, calm, surfing, relaxed and native style), to the services area and to the gastronimal/night life zone.

    We are a laid back hostel meant for those wanting to have a cozy but comfortable stay in one of the most beautiful natural resorts that is Ubatuba. The hostel is nammed after the Fire bird, the red colored species typical of the rain forest ecosystem hosting the city. Our hostel is always sheltering them during summer!

    Ubatuba is a 3% remaining of what is left from Rain Forest ecosystem. Ecological lifestyle, unique flora and fauna are to be preserved. Volunteers will have the chance to be part of this environment, interacting with locals, including local fishermen and even local indigenous population. Our lifestyle, traditions and cultural manifestations are to be shared. Tupi language is among the words that name our beaches, waterfalls and forests. Ubatuba hosts several ecological projects such as Tamar (turtles protection) and the Argonauts (sea animals protection). Volunteers will have the opportunity to visit some of them and learn how we act to live in harmony with this little peace of nature. Besides that, surfing, sailing, driving and several ocean side activities are to be enjoyed.
