*Fazenda Barranco Alto Eco Lodge
Pantanal, Mato Grosso do Sul
Marina and Lucas Leuzinger are the perfect hosts at this working ranch with a small well appointed lodge. Wild life (600 species of birds) is some of the best in South America. I think this is a place serious birders should visit at least once.
You can drive to the fazenda in season from Campo Grande (14 hours drive) or fly (about one hour). Knud Rasmussen, Birdingpal

Pousada Piuval
Poconé, Mato Grosso
They have huge grounds with Hyacinth Macaws, Greater Rheas and Red-legged Seriemas, several trails, a couple of observation towers plus boat trips on the marsh to get closer to the waterbirds. Birdingpal Stephen Boddington
Pouso Alegre
Transpantaneira Road KM33, Poconé
The wonderful owner guides visitors around the different habitats on his 'ranch'. He is a naturalist rather than a hard-core birder, but he knows his local birds and ecology very well. The rooms and food are very good. Birdingpal J Duerr, Ohio
Cristalino Jungle Lodge
Alta Floresta, Mato Grosso
Fazenda das Minhocas
Horizonte, Minas Gerais
Pousada Horizonte
Serra da Canastra, Minas Gerais
Guapi Assu Bird Lodge
REGUA (Reserva Ecológica de Guapiaçu)/Rio de Janeiro
Guapi Assu Bird Lodge is a birder-centric lodge one hour from Rio. It has amazing bird guides, lots of SE Brazil specialties in the forests owned by the lodge, day trips for special birds, and very nice accommodations with good food served overlooking their many bird feeders. The multilingual owner works diligently to include local communities in his conservation efforts. Birdingpal J Duerr, Ohio
Serra dos Tucanos Lodge
Tres Picos State Park South/East Brazil
