If you are more of a sedentary person, not quite up for abseils and snorkellings, there are still many cave tours to join. The options are all available from the hostel so you can flip through the selection and find one that suits you.The cave I visited was Gruta Lago Azul (Blue Lake Cave). At first, from afar, the water did not blue at all. But as...more

For this, you would be tethered to a rope and you have to descend 72m down into a cavern. Surrounded by stalactities of various formations, blahblahblah.Once you have landed on the pontoon, you change into a wetsuit and jump into the subterranean lake. What you see would be utterly out-of the-world!! The silence, the strange cones that come out...more

It's horrible! You have to know which bus number to pick or ask a local. There is not a map with all the connections. Buses don't have a travel scheme, it's always a surprise. Bus transport is cheap though. R$ 1,60 for a single trip, no matter how long you stay in the bus. But make sure you have the right bus. Not many people speak English.....more
One of the entries into Brazil when coming from Bolivia is Corumbá. It is only a few km from the Bolivian city Puerto Suarez from where you reach Corumbá by bus. The immigration office (migracao) is at the bus station. Sometimes you may need this office even when arriving by plane from Bolivia and the immigration officer at the airport is not there. This might be a problem if you are not a citizen of either Brazil or Bolivia because you may get troubles when you leave Brazil without an entry stamp in your passport. So if you arrive at Corumbá airport without seeing any traces of officers of the migracao just take the bus - if available - or a taxi to the Rodoviaria, the central bus station of Corumbá and go to the migracao there. If you find the office closed (which might happen if no buses to/from Bolivia are leaving/arriving) try your luck at the bar and ask for the responsible of the migracao. If you are lucky he is there having a drink and he will go with you to his office, open it and check your documents (from Bolivia also the Vaccination Certificate for Yellow Fever) and stamp your passport.

On the outskirts of the City of Chapada dos Guimaraes -- in a newly developed area -- sit some of the most interesting homes I've seen anywhere. Some are lived in year 'round; others are vacation homes, mostly for people from Cuiaba.The attractive homes incorporate water towers -- in the center of each house -- in imaginative ways.This house...more
Great place to hang with the locals. There are plenty of large screen tv's to watch the soccer match. The beer is cold and plenty. They do have a menu. We had the french fries with cheese sauce. Yummy. Jukebox pumping top 40 to local tunes. People here are very freindly. Small outdoor patio and yes you can dance.
