Fodor's Expert Review Refúgio da Ilha
Miranda, Mato Grosso do Sul, 79380-000, Brazil
This pousada is nestled on a 2,000-acre island in the Rio Salobra delta. Connected by a bridge to the mainland, it can be reached even during the high waters of the rainy season. The lodge, once a farmhouse, has comfortable apartments with tiled floors and pastel color schemes. Among the activities offered, snorkeling on the river and bird-watching are most popular. Large wildlife (especially mammals) are best seen on an evening or dawn tour in a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
