Hidden Paradise
5 Days – 4 Nights

PANTANAL

Known for its biodiversity, Mato Grosso do Sul has an important source of income based on ecological tourism, especially in the Pantanal region. Recognized by Unesco as a World Heritage site, the Pantanal is a plain that floods periodically and is one of the most diverse nature reserves on the planet. The main city in Pantanal is Corumba, whose main activity is fishing. Serra da Bodoquena, where the city of Bonito is located, developed from intense sedimentation and turned into a calcareous rock which extends 220 km from the city of Miranda until Porto Murtinho. The State capital, Campo Grande, is marked by diverse customs and cuisine, and reflects cultural traces left by the Indians, migrants from Brazil and other countries such the Syrian-Lebanese, Japanese, Bolivian and Paraguayan.

BONITO

Considered one of the best ecotourism destinations in Brazil, Bonito is located in the southeast region of Mato Grosso do Sul and has outstanding landscapes. Among the main attractions of the region, there are bathing in waterfalls, hiking trails, boat trips, and observation of aquatic animals in crystal clear waters. Those more venturesome can face the Anhumas Abyss, which has a 72–meter high rappel into a crevasse that gives access to a lake of calm waters where it is possible to dive.
