Is it November a good period to visit Mato Grosso do Sul, or it's too rainy? My husband and I are planning to get there at about November 10 for a week about. We would like to know if it rains all the day long or it is like monsoon, some hours of rain and then comes the sun. And in the zone of Bonito? It is out of this topic, but we want to visit also Minas Gerais during our itinerary. How is the weather like in November there?
My girlfriend and I are travelling to Brazil in May 2016 and we are interested in doing a 3 or 4 day tour in Pantanal:
- What would be the best starting point for a Pantanal tour? We will probably come from Iguazu or Paraty.
- Do you have any recommendations which tour agency to take?
- Should we book in advance or would it be better/cheaper to organize it when we are there? Maybe you think it is better not to do a full tour but go to a hotel or other accommodation and do day trips...?
I tried to find some answers in the forum, but most of them seem a bit dated.
Thanks a lot for your help!
Kind regards, Florian

Is there a bus running from Bonito to Dourados and then from Dourados to Fox do Iguacu overnight?
I will be in Bonito in November and need to get to Iguacu falls on the Brazilian side. Don't want to go all the way back to Campo Grande, if possible?
Which Pousadas can you recommend for a quality experience in the Southern Pantanal, accessible from Campo Grande?
Where would you suggest I take a tour to the Pantanal, Brazil from: Corumba or Campo Grande. I can be at either place in a few days. And are there specific tour companies and hotels that you would highly recommend? Your help will be greatly appreciated.
My friends and I wanted to explore the chapada dos guimarães national park, do we need a tour guide for it? If yes, is it necessary to book one in advance or can we easily get one there at the hostel?

I would like to visit the Lagoa das Araras (macaw lake) near Bom Jardim soon. There is very little information available in English.
Are there any tours from Cuiaba (daytours or over-night in Bom Jardim)? Are there any reliable tour operators who offer visits to Lagoa das Araras? Or can I easily get to the Lagoa das Araras by myself (taxi?, bus?, walking from Bom Jardim?). Are there any Hotels / Lodges near the Lagoa das Araras? How can I contact them? (I only found Pousada Bom Jardim, but they haven't answered my e-mails...)
Thank you very much for your help.
Are there any safety concerns when visiting Cuiaba?

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!!
in a few weeks I would be coming from Bolivia to Brasil via Corumba, I have heard a yellow fever certificate is required. can I aarnge it at the border ? or I have do do it in advance somhow ?
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!
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
I checked with Pantanal trackers - He's booked - who would be the best to check with?
Please and thanks

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 understand that it is possible to take a bus from Iguazu Falls to Campo Grande. Is it indeed possible? Can someone provide a few more details on this please.
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.
