The Pantanal in detail

Health & insurance

There is no malaria in the Pantanal, but dengue fever occasionally breaks out. Preventative measures are usually rapidly taken by authorities and the vector mosquito is, regardless, generally associated with urban areas and not the countryside. If you’re concerned, consult a travel-health expert for the latest information before you leave home.

There are medical services available in Cuiabá, Corumbá and Campo Grande.
