Old Sheepfold

Very nice wildcamp in front of two old sheepfolds. Lots of space on a grassy field. Tables, benches and trash cans.
Quiet at night, a few trucks at daytime driving to the nearby gravel pit.
Nobody came by. One of my favorites in D.

Aguada Camping

WARNING! At this campsite we were attacked at 4.30am in the morning! While we were sleeping a big stone flew through the passenger window and the robber could grab a jacket and an old bath towel. We screamed, could prevent worse happen and could force him to escape. The requested police said that this area is by fare not the safest and even in the high season such burglaries and attacks happen. Does not seem to be a peaceful neighborhood...

Camping Portal De Paraty

Was a perfect place for us! Not too noisy, even on the Independence Day of Brazil with a lot of people, not too dirty, just ok, nice host, huge grassy area, perfect to visit the city... and by the way, make your own choice and take the right shower ;-), men in the middle!
Paid R$ 30.-pp.
We also checked out the "Canto Caisara" and there was a lot of construction, the restaurant was closed and this beach is not to have a swim...

Canto Caiçara

We visited the place but did not stay. This beach is dirty and not to swim!
Would have been R$ 30.-pp + 10.- for electricitty. They've been contructing a lot on the place and the restaurant was closed too. Prefered the camping Portal Paraty in town to be close to visit the city.

Sugar Loaf

Still a very good place, safe and not too noisy. This was the best option for us. Paid R$ 8.-/day for parking.
There is a coin toilet nearby, it was always open, if not it's R$ 1.-. You can also use the toilets of the cablecar station, open from 8.00am-18.00pm. Also see our tip, we created a seperate place nearby, but the text you got here again.

Rio in 2 days, thats how we did...:
Arriving 16.00 at the parking Sugar Loaf, going directly up the "Pan the Azucar" with the cablecar. Next morning you leave by taxi for R$ 16.- to the Copacabana Beach, from there you take the metro nearby, changing at Botafogo and then strait to Maracana, to see the famous stadium. Entry is R$ 50.- pp. Back with the metro to Largo Do Machada. From there you book the Van-Tour with Paineiras Corcovado to the Cristo Redentor for R$ 61.- pp. Coming back to the Largo Do Machado you got many restaurants around for having dinner... Back with the taxi to your parking at Sugar Loaf for R$ 20.-... Enjoy!

Belisco Camping Mutari Beach

Just beautiful! The host couple is very helpful and friendly. Absolutely clean bathrooms, hot showers and lovely beach!
Nice grassy spots with shadow, good Wifi.
Great restaurant with good food and happy drinks too...
We really recommend!
We paid B$ 36.- for 2p in Van

Balsa Disembarkation point

This place is permanently closed.

Camping Mucugê

Very nice camping, for us one of the nicest we've seen on our trip trough Brazil! Clean, nice located and very friendly hosts!
Paid B$ 25.- pp.

Poço Encantado

Very nice cristal clear pool with blue water and sun beam shining in the morning between 9-12 am.
Very very friendly people. Let us stay the night in the parking lot for free and gave us the key for the bathroom and the shower. Incredible!
Worth visiting!

Gruta Lapa Doce

This cave is ok, but really not spectacular. With B$ 40.- pp totally overpriced, if you could join a group it's 30.-
For us not worth visiting...

Albergue Da Juventude

If we would have an other option we would have stayed an other place in Brasilia... and not save either!
They also have stolen some of our laundry from the clothes line...

Recanto Ecologico Lagoa Azul

One of the nicest campsites we stayed in Brazi. Very clean bathroom, beatiful grassy place to stay, some trees, friendly hosts, could connect to the outlet in a room. All just perfect.
Paid B$ 25.- pp/n
Did also the snorkeling tour in the river nearby, ask at the reception. Paid B$ 75.- pp.

Abandoned Recreation Park by the river

Indeed a nice place to stay. Quiet in the night, some locals fishing in the morning nearby. Recommend!

Pousada / Camping Porto Jofre

Probably the best stay for overlanders. Nice riverside view and a lot of wildlife around. But dirty bathrooms and a lot of trash around, hot showers only when the generator runs the night...
We did a private boat tour to see the jaguars here with them. Ask in the restaurant at the desk. We paid B$ 950.- for 4 persons for a complete day tour, without coming back for lunch and did not have to pay extra gasoil! We saw a lot of wildlife and a lots of Jaguars...

Porto Jofre-Corumba

We took the boat in Corumba to come here to Porto Jofre and booked directly with Evaldo Pinheiro [email protected], whatsapp: +679 9987 3077, he is the owner of the transport company.
The boat should leave friday evening, but we finally left sunday morning and arrived thuesday at about 4pm.
We paid B$ 4'500 for two cars, a Landrover and a VW T3 Kombi.
It was a very nice boat trip and experience. We would do it again, much better than driving all around to get to the northern Pantanal!

Pousada do Cachimbo / Corumba

Paid B$ 40.- pp/n.
Not a real campsite, but we don't know if there is a better one around Corumba. We parked the car between some trees in the garden. Had to use the cold shower of in a hotel room. Electricity is far away, you need a long cable. Place was run down and a lot of dust and dirt around...
The host is friendly and helpful

Pousada Aguapé

This is not the place to camp, but here you do the check in for the campground nearby. They also got pretty good Wifi and a pool, a restaurant and rooms to rent.
We put a new point for the place where you'll find the campground after check in.

Camping Aguapé

Camping usally used by local fishermen. Not very clean, bathroom run down, but very nice located at the riverside! Nice and friendly host family. The fishermen been nice to us too, invited us for a boat tour and gave us fresh Piranha fish every day... We liked the place.
Every campsite has a shelter and there's mostely a plug for electricity too.
You could only ask about the nice ocelot and other animals like wolves coming the night to get the fish trash...

Toco Toucan birds

Here you can see hunderds of Toco Toucan flying from one tree to the other! We never saw more Toucans in the whole Pantanal than here...
They love this kind of trees here and porbably you could see them here all year long!

Wild Camp viaje

Ok wild camp for the night. Totally quit, even if at the side of the road. You could be seen from the road here, but ok for one night

Juanita

Very good Pacu fish eating here, really liked it and went twice!

Pousada do Peralta

Probably the best place in Bonito. We really liked it... Some green-and-red macaws getting food flying by... and a giant anteater visiting the night!
Paid B$ 25.- pp/n

Seu Assis

Really liked this place! Beautiful camp, nice river and a lots of birds around, also some campibaras and much more. Wifi was almost not working when we've been there.
Paid B$ 30.- pp/n.

Buraco das Araras (parrot araras place)

This place is awesome, especially if you like birds and even if you've already seen a lot before...
Did the private guided photographer bird tour for B$ 170.- pp starting 7.30 am, 4 hours, and saw so many red-and-green macaws, a amazonian motmot and also amardillos... Worth visiting!

Hostel Natura

Very nice place, friendly owner, very quite, all ok, really liked it!
Paid R$ 32.- pp/n.

La Chacra Holandesa

This is probably our favorite place in Uruguay. Quiet, rural and just great to relax and chill...
We even visited Buenos Aires from there, just left the van there.
The place is cheap, the airport or the shipping is also nearby. Marieke and Jan are incredibly nice and helpful, sometimes organise BBQ's, help you with the transport for shopping and with everything else. We will be back!

Mechanic Alberto

After another transaxle breakdown (rebuilt at this place), now after only 12'600 km, we contacted them again and asked for help or also for reimbursement of the last repair costs.
But that did not interest them at all, they did not take any responsibility for their catastrophic work and did not want to help us in any way. Unfortunately our worst experience with a mechanic on 5 years journey. Not recommendable, avoid!

Acclimatization Camp CHL

Good and nice wild camp on 3040 masl, ideal for acclimatization coming from the chilenean side!
