Somewhere between a luxurious retreat and a true wilderness experience falls the Fazenda Rio Negro. The former filming location of the popular Latin telenovela "Pantanal", the Fazenda Rio Negro was a working cattle ranch that has been reborn for ecotourism and conservation. Ideally located along the Rio Negro and adjacent to thousands of acres of Pantanal swampland, it would be difficult to find a more perfect (and comfortable) place to experience this extraordinary tropical wilderness. One of my favorite aspects of the Pantanal, which the Fazenda grounds epitomize in spades, is the easy access to South American megafauna otherwise difficult to spot in other regions. Many of the iconic Amazonian species are found here - giant anteater, capybara, caiman crocodiles, jaguars, macaws and howler monkeys. Only where in the Amazon, these animals are hidden and elusive, here they walk around in the open, in some species forming great herds and flocks as if in some kind of twisted South American interpretation of the African Savannah. The Fazenda is truly a naturalist's delight outfitted perfectly to also accommodate those seeking a higher standard of comfort and pampering.
