A fantastic place to stay in order to experience the wildlife of the Pantanal. A team from the hotel met us at the airport and the wildlife spotting began on the journey to the hotel. After a welcome drink we were shown to our bungalow surrounded by trees and plenty of birds. All the staff were so helpful, nothing was... More

Great place to view the wildlife of the Pantanal. Excellent guides and exciting trips all included. The room in a bungalow in the grounds was basic but very clean - remember where you are! Food was only average and the fruit selection was poor given the location. The pool is excellent and much enjoyed by the children in our party.... More

Spent 3 nights here back in June during a trip to Brazil to enjoy the football world cup! We were picked up from our hotel and transferred to the resort via mini bus and motor boat. The resort is situated in wetlands so inaccessible by road. The resort itself is guarded by alligators (although they are very small) as you... More

From the moment we were collected at the airport in Cuiaba to being dropped off 5 days later this was a truly wonderful experience. The location is magnificent with access to a wildlife paradise,particularly the bird life, but what really made it special for us was the people at Mutum...all of whom were friendly and informative. The guides in particular... More

We came with our 2 boys age 6&8. Given that place quite far from civilisation we were a bit concerned if things will work out and boys will have activities they could take part in. We needn't have worried. Wildlife on the doorstep, lovely guide that kept boys excited with their eyes wide open, eager to spot yet another bird... More

This resort was the perfect pantanal experience. Loved it. Would recommend it to anyone looking to experience the jungles and rivers of the pantanal region. The river and lake system is incredible and the serenity is very peaceful!

Everything worked out well,the accommodations,the area,the jungle treks,and of course the horse riding on very tame horses.The food was tasty and interesting,and the canoe rides were delightful. Also don't omit the great hammock on each cottage porch.

We visited the Pousada do Rio Mutum during the World Cup. They organized everything from picking us up in the airport at Cuiaba to delivering us back for our return flight. We had very good English speaking guides. During our visit we saw more than a hundred types of birds, caymans, caipivaras, and three types of monkeys. We had wonderful... More

I was very well received by the staff. They are super genuinelly kind and made my 3 day experience memorable. There are a bunch of different tours one can take. I specially recommend the piranha fishing and the horse ride. The night spotting was not so interesting, besides the fact that one can see the eyes of the aligators going... More
