The Hotel Baiazinha is located on the banks of the Paraguay River, close to the Taiama Ecological Reserve - one of the best areas for spotting jaguar and the rest of the Pantanal’s wildlife.
With its own private jetty and a small fleet of specialist boats, the Hotel Baiazinha is the perfect place to stay when exploring the various waterways of the Northern Pantanal and enjoying the abundant wildlife. The 15 rooms are all en suite and fitted with air conditioning, as well as all the other amenities you need for a comfortable stay. There is a restaurant on site and even Wi-Fi is available. The hotel also has a network of trails and can also organise fishing and horse-riding excursions.
Taiama Ecological Reserve is a huge island in the Paraguay River and is extremely remote. No development is allowed within the reserve, so the Hotel Baiazinha provides the ideal solution; it is the closest you can get to the reserve, which can only maximise the wildlife watching opportunities.
