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.

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 ...
... well as to certify that these companies are going above the minimum to avoid and minimize their impacts on the environment to preserve biodiversity and environmental corridors. They hope to have the certification requirements ready by later this year. I am hoping that this effort really succeeds and spreads around the world. The real results remain to be seen, once implementation begins, and I will be checking up ...

... chicken wings, grilled mozzerella, giant beef ribs. If it moves, cut it up, grill it, send it out skewered on a metal rod, and the waiters will slice off the cut that I want. Want that well done, medium, or still mooing?? Just ask for a slice from the different parts of the skewer. Starting to feel the belly extend. Wishing I had elastic waistband pants right about now. Slowing down. Saying ...
