I visited Pousada Rio Claro in November 2016 for two nights on a tour with Bergman Nature Tours. The rooms were nice and comfortable with AC. The food was a buffet style and offered a variety of good dishes. They took special care of me since I am gluten intolerant, there were no problem for me to get special food....

This posada was very pleasant; located not far from Pocone, on the river. The accommodation is simple, spacious, very clean and comfortable. Each room has a hammock outside. There is air conditioning and also a fridge; very useful for keeping water in, amongst other things. Strongly recommend that guests purchase large bottles of water in supermarket in Pocone as this...

We stayed here for three nights as individual travellers. The pousada is very pleasant and well maintained. We did the boat trip and repeated this twice in the early morning. An abundance of birds, including some that we have bent over backwards to see elsewhere and here they were literally at our doorstep, like piping guans and curassows. Otters fishing...

The Rio Claro lodge was the first stop along the Transpantaneira Highway on our two week photographic tour of the Pantanal with Trogon Tours. Our trip was arranged with Wild Pantanal Expeditions, who provided a van, drivers, and a guide during our stay. The lodge is a working ranch, with cattle and horses roaming the property, which is somewhat in...

We spent a full day at the pousada rio claro, hiking, boat riding, looking at the animals and plants. It was very pleasant and interesting! The staff are well prepared and make you fell confortable. The pousada has a good restaurant and a pool, and hammocks to rest after lunch. We recommend the experience

Pousada Rio Claro is a very basic lodge with very friendly staff--a big "obrigada" to Gizelle in Reception & Javier in the dining hall! Pygmy owls & macaws on the grounds as well as a friendly pooch or two -- very "family" feel! Would strongly recommend to any Pantanal travelers!

We had a great fun packed stay here, our guide was Fernando and he was very knowledgeable. We had a problem with the aircon in our first room but they quickly came to fix it and ended up moving us to another comfortable room. It was nice that our room was close to the pool for those quick cool downs...

Amazing surrounding and staff especially Walter was amazing. We do not speak Portuguese but he was helpful and you can see he is good and honest person.

This was an economy lodge but felt like much more, and was an amazing place to stay. The rooms were fairly basic but clean and comfortable. The staff even made capybara shapes out of the towels that greeted us on our beds. Rooms and bathrooms were cleaned daily. The setting was beautiful, with a small pool and hammocks perfect for...
