Rain is present in the region from October to May, and this is definitely the best time to go to the Pantanal to appreciate it in its most famous landscapes: lots of green, sumptuous rivers and hundreds of animals to observe, such as alligators and storks.

Getting to this paradise is an adventure in the itinerary during these months: it is not uncommon to reach the accommodation only by boat or single-engine plane.

The aquatic plants, such as the water lily, also give a beauty show on their own, which can be contemplated even on horseback or 4×4 rides, with much more adrenaline than in the dry season.
