Pousada Santa Monica

Saquarema (pronounced sah-kwa-RAY-ma) is one of Brazils surf capitals, situated only 60 miles or a 1.5 hour drive from Rio de Janeiro. Straddling a spit of sand between a gorgeous lagoon and the open Atlantic, Saquarema is a laid-back little town with plenty of beach bars, restaurants, and cultural events.

Situated halfway to Buzios, 50 minutes to Cabo Frio and 1 hour to Arraial do Cabo (diving spot), Saquarema is a go-to destination for cariocas (residents of Rio) looking for relaxation, excellent seafood, perfect waves, amazing beaches and one of the most beautiful sunsets on earth. It is a very safe town and the locals will make you feel so welcome that it will be hard to leave.

Polluting industries are forbidden in the municipality; the waters are clean and fish and shrimp are abundant. The town is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts with unmarred shoreline that attracts sportfishing enthusiasts and sun worshipers. Whether you want to learn to surf, hike to a gorgeous waterfall, have a beer with the locals, or just plain relax on the beach, Saquarema is the place for you.

Plan your trip around your visit to the New York Times' #1 Place to Travel in 2013: Rio de Janeiro --

'With the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics (plus an oil boom) providing the impetus, the tropical city perhaps most famous for its Carnival hedonism is on its way to becoming a more sophisticated cultural hub. Special events also dot the coming year’s calendar, including the Catholic Church’s World Youth Day in July, the biennial Rio Book Fair starting in late August, and September’s Rock in Rio. And, of course, there’s soccer: the finals of the Confederations Cup, considered a dress rehearsal for the World Cup, will be held in a completely overhauled Maracanã Stadium on June 30.'
