      Foz do Iguazu to Bonito and Pantanal Tour

      Bonito Sep 26, 2012 at 12:33 PM

      Hi,

      I am hoping you can help me out.

      I am traveling in Brazil. I originally was planning on taking a Pantanal tour from Campo Grande.
      However I have heard from many Brazilians that Bonito is really beautiful.
      I will be arriving from Foz de Iguazu. I have not been able to find if there is a direct bus from Foz Iguazu to Bonito.
      Is there a direct bus? If so, what time does it leave Foz de Iguazu.
      I also read that there are pantanal tours from Bonito. I am wondering if its as good as if I took from Campo Grande. Then maybe I won't need to go all the way to Campo Grande.
      Any information would be greatly appreciated.

      Have a great day!!
      Limor

    • Pantanal eco tour -----is Pousada Santa Clara good?

      Pantanal Apr 14, 2011 at 12:11 AM

      Hi! Guys


      I have done a lot of researches try to find a good Pantanal eco tour.




      Has anyone heard about Pousada Santa Clara ? this agency is extremely cheap (05 days / 04 nights for R$ 460,00 ). I know we should not trust cheap one but my budget is really limited, and where I heard about this agency was from a guy has been to the Pantanal. I just hope to hear more opinions




      Thanks in advance!

      Can someone help me with my Pantanal tour quote I just received please

      Estado de Mato Grosso Jul 5, 2010 at 7:24 AM

      Hi there,
      I'm hoping someone can confirm or deny that the quote I was given is either too high or is the going rate in the high season.
      6 nights / 7 days(Aug 16th to Aug 22nd) on a pantanal tour out of Cuiaba1380.00US per person for a double room with air cond.1620.00US for a single with air cond.
      I asked for mid-range lodging.
      I realize it's the high season but all the quotes I was seeing in the forums looked to be approx. 200 reais/ day which is nowhere near this quote.
      I just want to make sure I'm not getting taken for a ride is all. If that's what it is, that's what it is and I'll book it.
      thank you in advance

      is it really worth it?

      Pantanal Jan 28, 2007 at 9:34 PM

      I'm planning a trip to brazil and I'm finding that I don't have enough time to fit all of my top spots in. I love nature, animals, etc... So I've always wanted to see the amazon, the pantanal, and iguazu. But now I want to add on Bonito and of course there's rio. Since I just had a baby recently, I no longer have the luxury to go for very long. So I'm thinking of skipping Pantanal and Bonito. The pantanal looks as if it might be kinda drab with just lots of birds (I'm not into birding) and the super cool animals are not regularly seen (i've seen coatamundi, crocs/alligators, deer, etc.) And bonito may be similar to spring diving in Florida with the large tarpon and manatees. If anyone's been to these places, I'd greatly appreciate your opinions. If I have only around 10 days or so (and even those laden with my feeling guilty)...is the pantanal and/or bonito really necessary?

      Getting from La Paz to Corumba

      Hi,

      a friend and I wish to travel from La Paz in Bolivia to Corumba on the western edge of the Pantanal (and then onwards to Iguazu Falls). Can anyone tell me if there is a decent route with some form of public transport for this journey? Would it need to be booked in advance or turn up on the day? Approximate costs would be much appreciated too if possible.

      Many thanks

      Pantanal and Bonito Questions

      Pantanal Jun 18, 2005 at 10:17 AM

      I am planning on visiting the Pantanal and Bonito in August and have a few questions.

      Many of the pantanal tours advertise horseback rides as part of the tour. I don't really like horses and I exceed the weight limit for most horses, so I don't think that's an option for me. If I can't ride the horses, will there be other options on the tour (boat ride, hike, etc.) while the rest of the group is on horses, or will I be stuck at the camp/pousada/fazenda while they are out?

      I noticed that many of the tours in Bonito require a wetsuit. I'm worried that they may not have one large enough to fit me, so would like to find options that wouldn't require me to wear one.
      How cold is the water in August?
      Are there tours (hikes, rafting, snorkeling) that do not require a wetsuit?

      Thanks for your help
