Today we have a special guest appearance in our social medias.

Elder Key Tateishi is part of our Operations team and a real expert when it comes to exploring Chapada dos Veadeiros, one of our country’s most amazing landscapes!

Thanks Key, we loved your destination tips. :)

a

“It’s not a secret that Brazil has rich biodiversity, unexplored caves, surreal waterfalls… but can you imagine reaching them all in the same place?

Trust us: at Chapada dos Veadeiros everything is possible!

Very close to the Brazilian capital (Brasília), the picturesque village of São Jorge is the gateway to the Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park.

c

The natural beauty of the place is already worth the visit in itsel, but combined with the instantaneous sense of well being, lots of inspiration and a twist of mysticism, makes the atmosphere even more  interesting.

The scenery is so breathtaking that you’ll find yourself in the middle of a savannah or even stepping into a rocky formation that looks exactly like the ground of the Moon.

b

With over 80 catalogued waterfalls in the region, there are many trail options, allowing people of all ages and physical conditions to enjoy it.

And the best part is that Matueté offers an unique experience over there: the possibility of staying in a beautiful Villla with all the perks and privacy, as well as full activities program, such as yoga classes, massage, meditation and many more adventures.”

Are you in the mood to reactivate your explorer side and spend more time in contact with nature? We bet so!

Since last week, when we received Cristalino’s Lodge staff in our office, to recycle what we already know about this natural sanctuary in the south of Brazilian Amazon, we cannot think of anything else… The result of this Amazon with a little taste of Pantanal? You got all the exuberance of the jungle, with a much better chance for sighting animals! More than 11,000 hectares of ecological reserve in a rich and balanced ecosystem throughout the year.

Access may sound complicated, but it is not! Just fly to Alta Floresta (MT) and upon arrival, a short car shuttle followed by 30 minute boat ride across the river, will take you there.

Worth to mention: the Lodge was named one of the top 25 Eco Lodges in the world, by National Geographic Traveler. We know why: expert guides that give more sense to interaction with nature, a modern sophisticated (yet very cozy) architecture, and impeccable service.

The highlight? Charming accommodations, full of perks and possibilities, like relaxing in a bathtub having the Amazon rainforest and a huge starry sky as a backdrop

There is so much to do there, so it’s worth to stay as many nights as possible! Several types and levels of trails, canoeing and bird watching, monkeys, plants and even large mammals.

How about enjoying sunrise at a high 50 meters tower? Explore biodiversity, embrace an ancient chestnut and end the day chatting around the campfire?

We do know some indigenous tribes that can do the rain dance to help our travelers have the perfect trip, but unfortunately that doesn´t seems to be working on the last couple of months… This year the abundant rain – or the lack of it – is getting on the way of those whiling to travel to some of the most incredible destinations in Brazil.

At the Amazon, Saint Pedro (for Catholics, the god that controls weather) has been too generous – maybe even too much. It has been raining much more than what it used to, and the Rio Negro River’s level is much higher than usual. The river is still perfectly navigable, in the case you are planning to travel in one of your yachts in the next few months – but what gets on the way is that most of its beaches are submersed, and as you can imagine, lots of riverside communities have been seriously damaged.

On the other hand, if you are planning to visit the pristine dunes and lagoons of the Lençóis Maranhenses on the next couple of months, we would advise you to take a look at other great places to go in Brazil, since there hasn’t been raining around the region. And if there is no rain, there are only a few of the biggest lagoons remaining. What is still a great view, but definitely not as impressive as it can be. But don´t lose hope! We were told that it rained yesterday, so we will keep you posted in case the situation changes!

But if you like to wait or take this weather risks, why don´t you head to the Southwest region of Brazil and check out the wetlands of the Pantanal and Bonito? Weather is perfect by now and there is a lot adventure and wildlife to be discovered. Liked the idea? Check for more info at http://matuete.com/wpmatuete/places-to-visit/pantanall

Have nice trip :)

Your home away from home in the Pantanal

The most exclusive way to experience the richest fauna and flora in Brazil with your family or friends is by taking a private villa in the wilderness of the Pantanal and forgetting what lies beyond its sun-tinted and flooded horizons. Read the rest of this entry »
