The vast humid plain of the Mato Grosso, on the Bolivian border, houses an ecosystem which is unique in the world. 

My suggestion:
Avoid visiting the north of the Pantanal during the rainy season (from December to March), there are so many mosquitoes that your dream vacation may turn into a nightmare... 
My review

For those who like to observe wildlife, it would be possible to create a competition Amazonia vs the Pantanal. It's true, the very mention of ’Amazonia awakens our spirit of adventure and longings for discovery. Except that the Pantanal, in addition to being the most beautiful wildlife reserve in Brazil (incredible, but true), is also virtually unknown and so the antithesis of those places where tourism equals crowds. That's just perfect for people like me who are looking for a travel experience that's off the beaten track! 

Here there are tropical wetlands as far as the eye can see, an ochre land, amazing flora and fauna...Yes, that's right, the Pantanal is the kingdom of biodiversity. We can also add to the recipe the unbeatable welcome which is so typical of Brazil, and there you have it - another great place to add to your travel plans.

From the activity point of view, there are visits to waterfalls, caves, hiking and horseback riding, boat trips, and, of course, all the wildlife in the water, on the land, and in the air...I'd also like to mention Bonito and its crystal clear waters. Bonito is not a surprise, it must be the best known city in the area. But it is just so beautiful...
