Had two nights here with our Teenage Sons. The accommodation was basic but clean and comfortable so provided all we needed. Complimentary water was very welcomed, the food was good and the staff great. This is a small friendly lodge with only 6 rooms so quite boutique. Had a day and a half on the water looking for jaguar and... More

Its rustic, but you expect that being this far off and honestly for where it is its actually quite good (air conditioning, tile floors, etc). But where this goes downhill is that when the owner is gone things run poorly. The food is poor, the doors are locked to limit access to water, and everyone working at the camp avoids... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our Pantanal tour. We came with our private guide. The accommodations are basic due to the nature of the place. The camp is very clean, food was good, the cook baked a cake every day. Staff was nice and friendly.

The Lodge offers fairly basic (but clean + comfortable) accommodation. Breakfast and dinners were of a good standard and tasty (especially freshly cooked cake in the morning). There were resident hyacinth macaws seen every the morning along with other birdlife. The location is a bit strange, seemingly in the middle of nowhere - but the hour or more drive to... More

This is a fabulous animal-viewing location, in the heart of the pantanal. Our visit was in July, during the dry season, but we traveled every day by boat through a maze of waterways to see jaguar, giant river otters, capybara, and birds, birds, birds! Mr. Lara is a wonderful guide, with outstanding knowledge and skills concerning the local wildlife. He... More

This is a wonderful set up - our guide, Juan, was incredibly knowledgeable about the animals and birds of the Pantanal and each day we went out by boat exploring literally from sunrise to sunset. All meals are included and for such a remote location are good. Very friendly set up with 8 tents that are comfortable enough, although not... More

Tents on platforms...a wonderful thing. The raised beds inside the tents were clean and comfortable and included mosquito nets which is just what is needed to rest well in the natural surroundings filled with native species of all sorts. The other things in the tent were a table and chairs and a coat rack. Tents offer the wonderful opportunity to... More
