Home Base to Exploring Southern Pantanal

Exploring the beauty of Southern Pantanal, one of the top ecotourism and adventure travel destinations in Brazil, and experiencing the authentic cultura pantaneira is easy with a home base such as Pantanal Ranch Meia Lua ("Half Moon Pantanal Ranch").

The ranch in Miranda, a gateway town to Pantanal Sulmatogrossense situated about halfway between  Campo Grande and Corumbá (with the nearest airport about in Campo Grande, 124 miles), offers guests the opportunity to observe the variegated wildlife of the wetlands, such as yellow throated caiman, great egrets, and capybaras, and enjoy a bit of the routine lived by the local peões, or cowboys.

A lot can be done without leaving the ranch: horseback riding, fishing, night safari walks, regional culinary lessons, and birding (including bird identification lessons).  

Beyond the ranch, expert guides can take you on explorations of Bonito - Brazil's famously organized sustainable tourist destination;  the Bodequena Mountain Range trails and waterfalls; or a road-and-boat tour of Estrada Parque (the Park Road) and the Miranda River.

Seven suites with bathrooms, a swimming pool, a panoramic tower, a lake and gardens are among the amenities. WiFi is available throughout the property and several languages are spoken at this ranch with visitors from many countries.

The pousada is listed as a Good Choice by Hidden Pousadas Brazil, Alison McGowan's collection of great places to stay and top destinations to explore in Brazil . Read more about it (and book direct).
