Fodor's Expert Review Pousada Araras EcoLodge
Km 37, Rodovia Transpantaneira, Pixaim, Mato Grosso, Brazil
Rooms are impeccably clean at this eco-lodge, which has comforts unexpected in an area this remote. All have verandas where you can sit, relax, and enjoy the views. The restaurant serves great Pantanal fish. Environmental education and awareness is the motto here: this pousada goes the extra mile to keep the environmental impact of tourism to a minimum and explains why and how they do it. One highlight is the 3,000-foot wooden walkway over the wetlands. There are two observation towers extending well above the treetops. From there you have a bird's-eye view of the surroundings. There's a two-night minimum stay, which provides you time to join the trekking, canoeing, and horseback riding, all included in the price.
