      Travel flow around Salvador Nov 10-25

      Brazil Oct 19, 2016 at 7:42 PM

      Flying into SSA around Nov 10 I want to visit the following places with minimal doubling back. How does this look?

      Nov 10 -arrive Salvador for Foz de Iguacu
      3 nights Salvador -
      3 days/2 night side trip Lencois (night bus from Salvador)
      2 night side trip Sao Felix/Cachoreia (from Lencois via Feira de Santana (bus)
      -Salvador via bus from Sao Felix/Cachoreia
      3+ night side trip Morro de Sao Paulo or maybe on to Boipeba (boat/boat) Somewhere with a decent balance of not to busy but not too secluded. a little nightlife is good, no wild parties. I'm 55 :)
      depart Salvador around Nov 25 for Rio

      Thanks in advance

      Pantanal and Bonito in November

      by annalecce Online Now Aug 17, 2016 at 9:55 AM

      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?

    • Pantanal Tour Recommendations?

      by fload Online Now Jan 5, 2016 at 5:27 AM


      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:

      1. What would be the best starting point for a Pantanal tour? We will probably come from Iguazu or Paraty.
      2. Do you have any recommendations which tour agency to take?
      3. 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

      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!

      is it really worth it?

      by travelmama2007 Online Now 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) the pantanal and/or bonito really necessary?

      Pantanal and Bonito Questions

      by smartlass Online Now 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
