Tangará is a small oasis of tranquility in Trancoso, Bahia. True to the Brazilian expression, “pé na area” meaning foot in the sand, we are a beachfront pousada nestled among swaying palms within a beautiful garden. Two footbridges crossing our small lagoon lead directly to the ocean and Trancoso’s famous Quadrado is a 5 minute drive up the hill. Home to a variety of birds, native animals and insects, you will awaken to birdsong and the sounds of the ocean waves just beyond our garden. During the day, our ambiance is designed for complete relaxation and comfort. From our outdoor restaurant overlooking the garden, the adjacent lounge with board games and selection of books and CDs, to our beachfront bar and lounges facing the spectacular ocean, Tangará’s spacious common areas allow our guests to enjoy both private quiet time and mingling with other guests. Need to be connected? Working from our little paradise can kick off their shoes, grab a pillow or two and get comfortable on our giant daybeds at either one of Tangará’s sheltered covered beach lounges. TUPI or not TUPI serves agua de coco and caipirinhas to delicious hot and cold ! Sunset is the perfect time to have one more caipirinha while waiting for the moon to rise over the ocean or take in the brilliant stars while listening to nature’s orchestra of frogs, crickets and lizards as they welcome the night.
