Pousada Serra Verde is an Ecolodge in Brazil's Atlantic Rainforest. We are surrounded both by natures beauty and by the destruction caused by man - less than 8% of this fragile biosphere remains. We work to educate and make positive impacts through guest interaction and working with local communities. We also plan to start a replanting program this year.
