He's a swiss who settled in Brazil some 15 years ago. So he knows English, Portuguese, German and maybe more languages and that really helps.
When you get off the bus from Sao Luis, Michael is there with his speed boat to pick you up at the river front. And then he zips you through the waters to his pousada. That's when it hits you that you made a really wise decision.
Only 2-3 pousadas are located on the other side of the river, so its quite, peaceful and the location works since most of the lagoon tours HAVE to pass by this pousada. So you get picked last which saves a lot of time.
Since we were vegetarians, we were freely allowed to use the kitchen and were given free veggies (neatly chopped) to cook with our indian spices. wow.
They have only 4 rooms so book directly in advance. The breakfast is nice and well laid out with fresh eggs made to order. Michael also arranged a share taxi to Sao Luis Airport for us in the morning apart from arranging the various tours. He totally hands on with everything.
They also baked a yummy cake for my bday on my wife's request for a surprise. touching.
Defi worth a stay.More
