Welcome to Hotel Fazenda Mato Grosso
When to visit Hotel Fazenda Mato Grosso
Cuiabá is your gateway to the lush Southern Amazon and wild Pantanal. The city serves as a launchpad for SouthWild’s many adventures in the heart of Brazil.
The 50-million-acre Pantanal, including the 250,000 acres that we affectionately call “Jaguarland”, is the perfect place to see Jaguars, Ocelots, Brazilian Tapirs, Giant Otters, Capybaras, Hyacinth Macaws and much, much more. The luxuriant Southern Amazon is home to 600 species of tropical birds, 80 species of mammals, and immense diversity of flowering plants. Notably, it is the best location on Earth to see the majestic Harpy Eagle and its adorable, fluffy, pure-white chicks! As these wild locations are remote, guests first need to fly nonstop from São Paulo or Brasilia to Cuiabá to start their SouthWild adventure in the Pantanal or Southern Amazon.
The best time of year to take a trip to the Pantanal is 1 June through 15 November. During this season, the weather is favorable, and the wildlife is most visible. The Southern Amazon, on the other hand, has no “best” season; it is beautiful and teeming with life year-round and never has noticeable mosquitoes! If you are interested in visiting active Harpy Eagle nests with tiny babies and huge adults, the best months are December through June.

Hotel Fazenda Mato Grosso Activities
With walking trails, swimming pools, sports facilities, and adjacent parks, Hotel Fazenda Mato Grosso is the perfect place for guests who want to keep the adventure going. One of the biggest draws of the hotel is its proximity to Horto Florestal Tote Garcia and Parque Ze Bolo Flor, two nature parks bordering the property. This proximity combined with the fact that the hotel is located on 25 hectares (62 acres) of lush, green gardens means that it is a great place to view wildlife even in the middle of a bustling city like Cuiaba. For our birders, the hotel offers the opportunity to see parrots flying through the trees, hummingbirds quickly flitting between flowers, and a rainbow of songbirds coloring the skies. Plus, you could catch a glimpse of other wildlife that makes Brazil so famous like monkeys, caimans and Capybaras! Hotel Fazenda Mato Grosso is definitely our pick for guests who can’t get enough of nature.
If you’re looking to take a swim, the hotel features two separate pools: a family pool with a pool bar and waterfall and an adults-only pool for those looking for a more quiet and relaxing atmosphere. For active fun, the hotel’s leisure area features a multi-sports court where you can play tennis, pool tables, and a soccer field (so get out there and challenge your friends to a friendly game!)
