All accommodations in the Pantanal offer meals; rates are mostly full-board.
Pantaneiros – the local Pantanal folks – make good use of regional ingredients in preparing their delicacies. You’ll find lots of restaurants with regional specialties on your travels in the area – stop in and try some. Fish is a speciality, while on farms cattle and grains come to the fore. Popular Pantanal desserts include furrundu – a mixture of papaya trunk (not the fruit), sugarcane juice and coconut – and ice cream made from bocaiúva, a local palm fruit.
