What a great getaway to the Pantanal. My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights at the Araras Ecolodge and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The lodge was very comfortable. The air conditioner was a must--and worked great by the way! And the animals were amazing to see...and were right outside our door. We especially loved the food! Every evening was a gourmet... More

The lodge is very comfortable, room are nice and clean, the food very good! Moreover you will see so many animals: lots of birds surrounding the place and sometimes getting very close (of course also the famous araras), caimans, capibara. Nice excursions both on foot or horse back ridings will let you know better the place. The owners are very... More

We've had a great experience in the pantanal. As the other reviews say, the place clean, the food is nice and the whole trip is organized well. During the trip you are assigned to a group of people that speaks the same language. In our case this really made our trip! We have had a lot of fun with our... More

My wife and I spent three nights at Araras in November, 2013. In reading the lower rated reviews, it seems that most of them are quite dated - at least one or two from as early as 2007. Could it be that things have improved since then? From our experience, if the staff, cleanliness, food quality, etc., were issues for... More

The main reason of going to the Pantanal is to observe the animals and of those there are plenty around the Araras Eco Lodge. I find it pitiful as well as ridiculous when certain people give a poor review of the hotel, because they can't manage with the frogs or the bats. Do me a favour. Stay back home in... More

We spent 4 nights at Araras - the final section of our S.American holiday. What a way to finish. Great hosts. Wonderful freshly cooked proper food. Saw Cayman alligators all around the property - they are not interested in humans! On night safari saw Jaguar and Tapir with baby. Caught a yellow piranha while fishing on the river.
