Went on a 2D1N tour (pantanal) + 2D2N tour (bonito) with Amarildo (boss) coordinating (not the actual on-site guide) and had a pleasant experience from the Campo Grande bus terminal and back. Activities need to be decided before hand as most locations has fixed timings and guests, hence necessary research is recommended before reaching the site. Had a slight hiccup...

We did a 3D/2N Pantanal tour with Ecological Expeditions, staying at the Arara Azul hostel. This is a budget option for the Pantanal and overall we enjoyed the trip. We stayed in a four bed shared room. Our room had hot water in the shower but other rooms did not. No one told us if there was WiFi or not...

The hostel is basic: basic room, basic bed, basic shower, basic breakfast... 80 Rs for a private room is acceptable. The WiFi is good! The hostel staff does NOT speak English. You can communicate in English via the owners of Ecological expeditions (Pantanal trekking) Amarildo or Rodrigo. This hostel is fine if you stay one night on your way to...

Before booking trip to Pantanal we were a bit confused, because we read some bad reviews on ecological expeditions company. Despite this, we decided to book with them and we were very happy about that! Everything was very good organised: the guy from company took us from airport to hostel; as we arrived very late, the owner of company (Amarildo)...

Enjoyed our stay at this hostel. Nice location and Douglas has all the information you will need to book your excursions. There are several cats at the property that are SUPER friendly. I would suggest this hostel to anyone heading to Bonito.

The survival tour is expensive but worth every single penny! This place is simple, rustic with delicious fresh food and very experienced guides; most whom have been there for over 20 years and amazing wildlife. Over all the organization pre trip was super & clear! We spoke with Amarildo two times over whatsapp, he was so helpful, knowledgeable & kind....

Ok for an overnight stay, but very basic and noisy as no sound proofing between rooms. Bed was comfy, breakfast basic. Stayed overnight as part of a Pantanal tour which was very poor, would not recommend, no English speaking guides and tour not as promised.
