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! Chen
I checked with Pantanal trackers - He's booked - who would be the best to check with? Please and thanks
We are a family of 6 (4 adventuresome boys ages 12, 10, 8 & 2 1/2)looking to explore the pantanal out of Cuiaba in June or July 2010. Any recommendations on tour guides/organizations that are good or to be avoided? We are on a budget so looking for something reasonably cost as well.
Hi Im thinking of getting a tour of the Pantanales, can anyone give me an Idea of how much they cost, they withhold all that info on their sites and i just want a general idea. Thanks a mill

I'm going to be traveling to Rio in late August and we were thinking of doing a side trip to Pantanal and Iguaca as well. Are those areas worth visiting in August?
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?
We are travelling from Corumba to Bonito on a Sunday and the direct bus only runs Mon to Sat. Is there other buses we could get? Can we get a bus from Corumba to Miranda, then from Miranda to Bonito? Does anyone know which companies operate this route.
Hello there, I am not being idle i have searched the site, but nobody actually says, yes i went with this company and they were fantastic. So is there a company who does wonderful tours to the pantanal. If so please share. Jason
Hello! does anyone know of a reliable and cheap! tour company which does 4/5 day tours leaving from Corumba? or is there a cheaper way to see the pantanal? i'll probably be travelling on my own and havea pretty tight budget! (im just a lowly backpacker!) Have been looking at Ecological Expeditions, they look good but have no prices on their site! Has anyone taken a tour with them recently? What did you think? Thank you!
If i am going for approximately 5 days to see the pantanal, where should i fly into to get the best experience? Thank you,
Hi All What’s the temperature in Pantanal in winter? Especially, is it possible to camp in the area of Chapada dos Guimares at night without turning into a block of ice? Is Chapada considered much colder than the other parts of Pantanal? Thanks
Are there any flights from Foz(Brazilian side) to one of the cities in/around Pantanal where the tours starts?
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
Does anyone know where the Pantanal is located, like the lattitude and longitude?
Hello All Just wondering if anyone know how long the bus journey takes from Foz do Iguacu to Campo Grande?

3 of us will be travelling all over Brazil during August & September, using an airpass. We want to see the pantanal, so we have booked a flight into Campo Grande and we leave 5 days later. Will it be easy to book a 3 or 4 day tour/trip into the pantanal, once we arrive in Campo Grande? Are there any good companies that we should look for, or bad ones we should avoid? How much will a trip into the pantanal cost? Thanks for your help Jameel
hi everibody. I need help! I'm going to brasil in 3 days and I absolutely want to see the pantanal. I haven't yet decided which town is the best to arrive and make a nice tour, considering that I only have 4 days to stay there and that I would prefer not to sleep in a camp. can anybody help me please? do you think I can book directly when I am there or do I need to make a reservation before leaving? thanks a lot!!! silvia
