Pousada Xaraes is a comfortable lodge on a commercial ranch, just metres from the Aboral River. The décor is rustic, and the atmosphere welcoming.

Its 17 rooms, all of which have en suite bathrooms with hot water, air-conditioning, minibar and telephone, are distributed across three buildings - with capacity for 46 people. Facilities include a sitting and dining room, bar, swimming pool, and games areas. 

Hammocks on the verandah provide opportunities to listen to the morning birdsong around the lodge, interspersed with the roar of howler monkeys in the trees along the riverbank. Activities include canoe and boat trips, walks, drives and horse riding.
