Do not go on a tour with the so-called Jaguar Ecological Reserve. There is nothing “ecological” about them. Their guides do not speak English and they use a loud, smelly 2-stroke engine while aggressively pursuing jaguars in the Porto Jofre area. There are plenty of other choices with good guides and quiet, much more environmentally friendly 4-stroke engines.

I have noticed that a lot of reviews on this place refer to their Pantanal trip as a whole rather than reviewing this lodge and my review is of the lodge not of the river trip from Porto Jofre. I also note that Eduardo was mentioned but he made himself very scarce when I visited and he certainly never introduced...

I stayed in this excuse of an eco lodge as part of a photographic group, overall my experience was a disaster. Lets start with the accommodation, basic at best with poor decor and a bathroom that is just short of shabby. No hot water for 4 days as inclement weather failed to charge the solar panels. The water supplied for...

We arrived there in the middle of torrential rain just after dark. My room had no windows you could use as both had wooden shutters. One was nailed shut, the other could have been opened but there was no netting on the window to stop the bugs from coming in. It also had apertures in it through which insects could...

Highly recommend to use them for a trip for Porto Jofre as a) reasonably priced b) their boat has a canopy, crucial for a long hot day on the water and c) very knowledgable about Jaguars and super friendly. Book early as we were very lucky that they were available.

I'm a wildlife photographer and I stayed for 3 days in July 2016. I chose this lodge specifically for the chance to photograph jaguars and giant river otters and in that respect it certainly didn't disappoint. The accommodation was basic but comfortable with good local food. The grounds were very small but with lots of bird-life and a little trail...

This "lodge" is nothing like the photos on their web site. The photos must have been taken about 10 years ago. The wiring for the fans and electronics for the A/C units have been eaten away by rodents and roaches. There's trash piled out back. The beds were mildewed. Screen are gapping at the edges to let all the little...

Our Brazil experience was exciting and all we hoped it would be with the exception of this so called ecolodge. Our first and third lodges were great... great food, hospitality, accommodations and overall atmosphere. We had the best guide ever throughout our trip! The wildlife was sensational!!! In the middle of our adventure we spent 3 nights at this lodge...

I will never forgot this lodge. We arrived and two blue hyacinth macaws flew over head. If you want nature, a clean room, a comfortable bed and friendly staff, go here. This is where you go to see animals in their natural environment. The wildlife was spectacular and we really appreciated the depth of knowledge of our guide, Eduardo. On...
