The Pantanal was a great area, but hotel Baiazinha was the best. You could see the alligators sun-bathe at the Rio Paraguai. You could catch piranhas and eat them. And you could see the sunset above the river and also the sunrise. You had to travel for 3 hours by speedboar, while seeing the monkeys in the trees and the giant water lilies, a real experience. Dancing on Brazilian guitar music, lovely meals and a fantastic service, good clean rooms with everything in them we needed. A lot of entertainment. I really recommend it! If you're in the neighbourhood, then let a good English speaking guide guide you.
