OUR OPINION: Fazenda Caeira is an excellent choice in Morro de São Paulo. Its location was precisely what we were looking for, on the quieter part of Morro but close to everything. If you want to be bang in the middle of where the action is (night life, in particular), then Fazenda Caeira is not the best option. But its location is excellent if you are looking for peace and quiet while at the same time want to be able to reach the village in a few minutes. If you fly to Morro you have to take the Addey plane, it will land at the pousada’s landstrip.
