Refúgio Ecológico Caiman

Lodge in Southern Pantanal

An ecopioneering lodge 36km north of Miranda and a private Pantanal for a privileged few. There are two lodges: Cordilheiro is the most remote and rustic with a great lookout tower, while Baiazinha is more playful, with a pool deck and position for spotting jaguars. Tours are led by on-site multilingual guides. An environmental charge of R$150 per guests applies.

There are an estimated 40 jaguars and 300 macaws on the property. Prices include meals and numerous activities, from canoeing to horseback riding; there is a three-night minimum in high season.
