The staff here are keen to help out and by and large this was a great experience acknowledging that it is doing it all a bit rough. The fod was good. The bar caters for basic needs. the piraña fishing and eating was fantastic! The Lodge sells itself as an ecological establishment and they really seem to try. However , we saw some plastic bags get thrown in the river by staff and one of the staff stood purposefully on two frogs. The staff assured us this would not happen again, so we give them the benefit of the doubt. There is no ! I mean NO contact with the wider world as the management apparently believes this will interfere with the whole Pantanal experience... Just bad, old fashioned business in my opinion. No internet, no WiFi, no mobiles, no phones except for local calls. Should be advertised as such in their brochures. But if you want a few days with the Brazilian wildlife, this has been a pretty cool start point. Yes! We did see a jaguar!!! Very rare apparently.

... to see a caiman up on the road and also what we think were monkeys crossing the road that was a bit far ahead of us, but other than that, not much. At 1500 the group went out to go piranha fishing using very high tech fishing technology, a bamboo stick with some line attached. It didn't work. Unless you were a pro like the guides, you didn't have chance. How they think you can snag these tiny fish who nibble and shred the bait off with these massive hooks and bait chunks was beyond ...
After a few days in Bonito we opted to pay a little extra and spend our last few days before heading towards the coast on an optional excursion in the Pantanal. The Pantanal is a large region on the western border of Brazil located in the Motto Grosso de sul province. It is a swampy jungle land that floods in the rainy season leaving most of the land under 2 meters of water. When the waters recede it leaves lots of small ponds and swamps that are packed full of animals. This ...
... had such a wonderful time and I'm sad to leave. I will see them again before I return home - perhaps I will know a bit more Portuguese to be able to communicate better with Cacilda.....They are so sweet. They said I was welcome back any time and they would keep my room reserved for me....I'm not sure if they realize I'm the type of person to take someone up on an offer like that should it be given to me. =) I invited ...
After a 18h busride from Asuncion, I arrived in Curitiba, at 6 am. After the check in in the hotel I took the famous scenic railway tot Morretes, only on weekends it goes all the way to Panagua. Was it that I didnt have enough sleep in the bus or was the first hour (in total 3h) ...
Ok so I didnt really explain what makes Curitiba posh.. The people here are all quite well off and although begging and prostitution is still visible on the street you can really feel that the average citizen is quite well off. They love shopping here and there is more than one huge mall near to the hostel. The people here are very closed for Brazilians, they are much less willing to talk to you than people I met in Rio or Sau Paulo. It feels more like home where it ...
