Its a pretty nice place. A new owner has recently taken it over and they are really trying to improve the place, but it is a little rough around the edges currently (nothing major, just a little worn). The people who run it are really lovely and helpful and I'm sure that once they have had it for a few more months it will look great. The breakfast was incredible - it ran the entire lenght of a pretty big table - loads of stuff.

Painted panels protect possessions of the polite peoples who populate this precinct. A pokerfaced painter paints perfect paintings of planets on plastic while police patrol in plum pastel personas. …
... keen to convince the others it was a crowd of people and plough on, however, I was unable to fool them (& myself as it got louder and louder!) So, we opted to hold fire and wait for trusty locals to catch up with us and follow closely in their footsteps- relying on them for insider knowledge/protection! The screeching was supposedly a group of hog -like creatures who roam the jungle and can be aggressive... so probably a wise decision to ...
... well and truly experienced the Pantanal from all perspectives.
With our bellies full of free Pantanel cuisine we set off for Bonito, the ecological capital of South America. A five hour drive once seemed like a long drive, now, in comparison, that was a short one.
The award winning snorkelling tour in Bonito wasn't an included activity but our leader, rightly so, said it was a must do optional extra. There aren't many places left in the world that a mandatory shower ...
