9. Accommodation

There are numerous inns (pousadas) and rooms-to-let in the village near the Casa, and in the main part of town across the highway. At the date of this writing, you can arrive in Abadiânia without reservations and easily find lodging. If you prefer the convenience of reservations, see Resources for pousada telephone/fax numbers and mailing addresses. The pousadas are simple, clean and safe, and offer single, double, and dormitory-style accommodations. Most rooms have private baths, and all include a light breakfast. Most serve lunches and dinners in their dining rooms, but some offer meals only when there are ten or more guests. Full board is inexpensive, however, meals are readily available elsewhere (see 10).
