Accommodations: Serra dos Tucanos - Brazil

Serra dos Tucanos is an excellent small lodge within the Tres Picos State Park, south-east Brazil. This is a great base from which to explore the Atlantic rain forest where over 100 endemic birds occur - around 200 species have been seen in the lodge's grounds! Serra dos Tucanos caters specifically for birdwatchers, but naturalists and nature-lovers of all kinds are very welcome. There are landscaped gardens with two small rivers winding through them and adjacent rain forest where an array of flowering and fruiting trees attract a rich fauna including hummingbirds, tanagers, parrots and toucanets. When it rains many of these birds can be watched close-by at feeders on and near the veranda. Thus this is a great lodge for photographers. The en-suite rooms are pleasant, there is an outdoor swimming pool and traditional meals are prepared on site. All in all, this is a fine birding lodge.
