Frommers Visits the Pantanal

I just returned from the Pantanal and was greatly impressed by the organization of the tour, and most importantly of all, with the destination itself. Although “site tour” may not be the most accurate name for this trip; it was more like Boot Camp! Up at the crack of dawn (or shortly thereafter), early morning hikes, afternoon hikes, swimming in frigid rivers where piranhas, alligators and anacondas lurk, canoeing, biking and horseback riding….not to mention falling into (very comfortable and cozy) beds by 10 pm. Very unlike my normal more bohemian ways.

Check out what our Craft Travel expert had to say following her visit and inspection of the property.

Featured Destination: Lençois Maranhenses National Park, Brazil

Visiting to the Lençois in the North of Brazil is not a typical thing to do, even for local Brazilians or Brazil "nuts" like ourselves. As such, this means that Lençois Maranhenses National Park is still one of the most astonishingly beautiful and untouched areas of the country. Composed of sand dunes and surrounded by crystal clear water originating from heavy periods of rain during the rainy season. Here's your quick guide to everything you need to know for planning the perfect adventure to Lençóis Maranhenses.
