Description:

The Pousada do Rio Mutum is located in Barão de Melgaço city, in one of the most beautiful regions of the Pantanal. With an extension of approximately 11,000 square kilometers, only 3% of this area is made up of dry land.

The Pousada do Rio Mutum also has the proximity of the famous Bays of Siá Mariana and Chacororé, is more than 15 kilometers long (almost twice the Bay of Guanabara in Rio de Janeiro) is best known for the legends and myths created by the population riverbank that inhabits the banks of the Cuiabá River.

This is a privileged region, because it concentrates all kinds of landscape that make up the Pantanal ecosystem. The natural beauty and the rich biodiversity of this part of the Pantanal form a set differentiated by the singularity of its landscapes formed by hills, savannas, rivers, corixos, and huge flooded areas, some temporary and others permanent. What is most striking about this wonderful scenario is that the preservation of all existing species of life depends directly on the cycle and rhythm of the waters.

The Pantanal has two distinct seasons, dry and wet. During the wet season (November-April) guests will find the region in bloom, with lush vegetation and flowers, however the rains can make some areas tricky to reach, it is very hot and humid and some lodges do close at this time. We feel the best time to visit is during the dry season (May - October), which is the peak season for viewing wildlife, when rare species of birds and other animals seek shelter along the riverbanks and can be observed more easily.

The nearest airport is Marechal Rondon Airport, 82.1 km from the property.
