We booked a half day tour here for 880 Reales/boat. Full day would have been 1350Reales or so. The tour was great, we saw 5 jaguars and lots of other wildlife.

Would prefer to wildcamp though. Camping for 40Reales per person is too expensive when there is only one toilet which is disgusting, a shower which is dirty too and wifi that hardly works for anything. The owner was very nice though and the setting is pretty.

We stayed 3 night at the campsite and loved it. Great birdlife around the campsite. There are to big parrots that life there. Monkeys come and visit so don't leave and food out. We arranged a boat trip with them. Full day trip was 120 Pesos for 2 people. You can also do a morning trip from 7 till 11 and a 3 hour afternoon trip for same price. Camping was 40 Pesos per person. Power was on the whole day. At each campsite there are 220 and 110 power. We did not eat in the restaurant. Staff was helpful and friendly but cannot speak English.

Great campsite along the river. Shady sites with mango, papaya, banana trees... like in paradise. A lot of birds, also blue macaws there. Camping is 40 RS ppn. You can have breakfast, lunch or dinner in the restaurant, if you want. We also did a jaguar boat trip, organized by the camp, 1.270 RS. Great tour, really long, from 7 am to 5 pm and we saw so many jaguars that I stopped counting. 100% recommended 👍

Camping on the river as discribed. They offered us a tour (2p small boat) for 700 R 4hours, starting at 7 am next day. We finally agreed on a full day trip for 900 incl lunch, out in the Pantanal. After 4 h the captain returned to the port and terminated the trip. He had some argumenting during the last hour via wireless. After some discussion the boss insisted on the 700 but offered us a free lunch, we finally accepted. There were some new tourists at the place, I expect he could sell a trip for a better price. I cannot recommend this place.

Stayed here 1 nite. We were swamped with mosquitos here. Only place open in town at this time of year. Went on 4 hrs (650reals for 2 inclusive 1 nite camping ) jaguar tour but didn’t see any. Lots of birds Saw hyacinth macaws. Dirty toilet n shower.

One of my few negative experiences - but it doesn’t have to be. Everything about the description is accurate but it’s just a bit worn down and little effort is going into the place. The staff might be the laziest people on the planet - you need to walk into the reception and wake them from the discolored white couch to get anything done. I empathize - really - it’s 38 degrees and humid as hell, but the lack of effort is an effort in itself. We actually booked our boat down the road a bit as these guys simply couldn’t be asked!

The shower was fine and the bathrooms acceptable - it’s more a comment on apathy. If we were to do it again we’d finish the boat at 17:00 and go back to one of the lodges mid-route. The sites are very buggy - again, understandable, but they are not being maintained.

Camping au bord du Rio Cuiaba 40R/p électricité de 12h à 14 h et de 18h à 6h. Les sanitaires ne sont pas bien entretenus mais en faisant soi même le ménage ça va.

Probably the best stay for overlanders. Nice riverside view and a lot of wildlife around. But dirty bathrooms and a lot of trash around, hot showers only when the generator runs the night...
We did a private boat tour to see the jaguars here with them. Ask in the restaurant at the desk. We paid B$ 950.- for 4 persons for a complete day tour, without coming back for lunch and did not have to pay extra gasoil! We saw a lot of wildlife and a lots of Jaguars...

We liked it here. 40rpp to camp. Boat was 750 r for 4 people + extra gas (first 20L Included). So we paid 440R for two people for a full day tour and saw 2 jaguars - then we were very lucky to get invited to another group's boat for free 3 more days for free and saw 13 jaguars in total! If you want to be almost 100% sure to see the jaguar it is important to go for a full day tour. The type of boat didn't really matter - we tried several types. Camping by the river was beautiful, you have a hut with a sink and electricity for yourself and shade under the trees. Bathrooms are not very nice but the only one with a hot shower is clean and the lady's bathroom in the restaurant is also nice. We spent here 6 nights. Many of the other guests are fishermen and the owners are not very friendly but Benicio who manages the place is very friendly. Food is expensive so we didn't eat at the restaurant. Electricity 6pm to 6 am and 12 to 2 pm. Wifi 24h at the restaurant. Several blue macaws live here too. We liked the settings much more than Jaguar Camp that we checked before coming here.

Don't go there. Although a few of the amenities looked almost new they already seem to have stopped cleaning the place. The toilets were all extremely dirty (literally full of s***), the campsite huts were very dirty (leftovers and rubbish) and the guys at the reception could not have cared less... wanted to charge 40 reais pp, we turned around and went to Jaguar Camp, which is a much better option.

Major update of main description is well overdue as the original is way out of date.
Three Blue Macaws visited every day (their nesting hollow is just behind the first camping shelter) and a pair of Giant Otters patrolled past our site several times a day.
Earlier reports of rubbish are obsolete as two workers were constantly on the job, even raking leaves.

We try to check in Porto Joffre possibilities to ship with our car to Corumba, no way. People in this place are just interested by the jaguar business and tourists currency. If you are not decided by paying 1200 BRL (350€) to shot a photo to a poor jaguar pushed to the banks of the river Cuiaba by people radio-linked with the driver boats it is not worthy to go to Porto Joffre : animals and birds are present 70 km on north.

40R per person for the camping, 70R for open buffet dinner and 850R for whole day boat trip. We didn't use any of their services.

Beautiful spot alongside the river. Sanitary facilities are clean, but too much garbage lying around. 25 reais a night (2 persons + car) was too much money considering the facilities. But spotting a jaguar, blue macaws and an iguana made it definitely worth the money. Owner is Oscar.

Price: R$25 per couple + vehicle
