History of this Location:
Caiçara Pousada, located directly on the beach, was opened in January of 2006. Pousada is the local definition of a guest house and are historically small and homey, this one having only 9 rooms. The pousada was given the name “Caiçara” for the regions natives and to honor the owner’s family, who were born in Ilha Grande, including her grandmother who still lives directly behind the pousada and whose property provides the water used there.

Sustainable Features:
Since its opening in 2006, Caiçara Pousada has been working to improve their sustainability practices. In 2006 the pousada began a 3 year project to build solar panels for the pousada. Since 2009 the Caiçara Pousada has been using solar panels as their only source of hot water. The water flows to the pousada from a local source, is heated by the solar panels, and is used for showers, cooking etc. In order to conserve electricity, the lights in the pousada are never turned on until about 7pm and the staff uses candles whenever possible. The pousada also separates recyclables out of their waste and hires only local people onto their staff and do not employee school aged children during school time.

Caicara Pousada, built in 2006 is one of the newer pousadas in Ilha Grande. This is a great place to stay for individuals and small groups that are visiting Ilha Grande. This place is small and cozy. It is also in a good location, right on the beach.

This was a really nice pousada, welcoming and right off the beach. It had a really nice tropical feeling to it. The staff was really friendly and helpful which is always nice when visiting a different country. Sandy

This was the perfect Pousada for a group of 23 of us to stay in. The staff was very welcoming and was right off the beach. The Pousada itself was intimate and homey. It had a small pool, game room and steam room. The rooms itself were decently sized and cozy. I would recommend this Pousada for those who want to relax and have a comfortable stay while on Ilha Grande! - Allison T

The front view of the beach every morning at the complimentary breakfast was amazing. The staff is very friendly and helpful if you need to grab a beach towel, leave your key, or just hang out by the lobby. The pousada had a nice local apartment feel to it, with very good amenities. There is a sauna, pool, and game area that made relaxing that much easier. It is also write on the beach so if you want to hang by the sand, get on a boat, or visit numerous shops, it's a great place to stay! - Christian V

This was a beautiful, cozy pousada. The owner Olive, is tied to this island through her family and cares very much about its preservation. Olive is dedicated to creating a sustainable business and loves the people who pass through her pousada. In addition to being environmentally friendly the pousada provides comfortable rooms and serves a delicious breakfast every morning in their small breakfast nook that looks right out into the ocean. What a great way to start the day!

I had a greta time staying at Caicara Pousada, with the water facing you as you step out of the hotel, you can never go wrong. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. This Pousada is located in the center of everything, with restaurants to your left and shops to your right I didn't feel like I missed a thing. Exciting enough for the night but still quiet enough after an exhausting day, this place is a definite recommendation. With sustainable environment awareness in their daily works and efficiency all around, Caicara Pousada will definitely be seeing me again soon.
