History of this Location

Pousada Coxixo is a pioneer in the development of tourism in Paraty as it was the first pousada and was built before 1974, when the road to Cunha was the only way to reach Paraty. Maria Della Costa, a famous Brazilian model and star of stage and screen, and her husband, also an actor, planned this pousada and progressively built it over the years. Today, Maria plays a very important role in the character of this inviting pousada. In her many travels around the world, she found that friendliness and warmth are often missing from the hospitality experience. Her goal is to have her guests feel welcome and at home in her pousada and she takes real steps to assure that this happens. She also takes great pride in being a gardener, growing much of the lush vegetation in the courtyard of Pousada Coxixo. Maria is an energetic, dynamic, and glamorous women who delights in welcoming guests. She believes in ‘boca a boca’ or ‘word of mouth’ as a marketing force.
