I stayed a day in Cuiaba before embarking on a tour to the Pantanal. My plan to visit the chapada dos Guimaraes park was thwarted because of fires raging there, so I decided to stay in Cuiaba. Since I stayed close to this park, I visited it three times. The first time was around 15.00 at the day of my arrival, and I was pleasantly surprised first by seeing a nunbird, then a trogon, then some bare-faced ibises, then some lizzards, again a trogon, an antwren (I think) and finally some agoutis. The next morning I visited around 7.00. This time I noticed mainly the monkeys, and also a cuckoo I think, and some bluish tanagers drinking at a central spot in the park. Many people jogging at this time, which may make the morning a less ideal time to see wildlife. My last visit around 16.00 didn't yield anything new. I just saw agoutis and monkeys again, and noticed the ibises in a tree in the distance. Generally a very good place to see birds and other wildlife. The park is mostly used by joggers. Pets and cycling are understandably forbidden. There are mopeds in the park though and I think cars are allowed too, as long as they stay under the 10 km speed limit. I think it is a pity that the many trails have all been asphalted. Maybe this is to minimize the risk of joggers falling, but this does not weigh up against keeping the space natural. I also think there are plenty of instruments for exercises around the park - hope they don't put more there.

Fizemos alguns passeios, entre eles a caverna Aroe-Jari, a Ponte de Pedra entre outros, com o Guía Pablo Peres, Cel: 65-992950665. O Pablo é um guía sensacional, muito culto, profundo conhecedor de botânica, arqueologia e de cada cantinho que visitamos. Além de tudo, ele é bem-humorado, paciente e muito preocupado com a segurança de seus clientes. Recomendo fortemente o Pablo como guía para toda a região da Chapada dos Guimarães. We did some tours, among them the Aroe-Jari cave, Ponte de Pedra, among others, with the guide Pablo Peres, mobile: 55 65-992950665. Pablo is a sensational guide, very cultured, with a deep knowledge of botany, archeology and every little corner that we visited. Besides that, he is good-natured, patient and very concerned with the safety of his clients. I strongly recommend Pablo as a guide for the entire Chapada dos Guimarães region. Besides Portuguese, he speaks English, German and other languages. I am positive he will make your tour a great moment.

Me and my girlfriend went on two hikes here, a shorter waterfall hike with 8km walk and a longer 21km hike up Morro sao Jeronimo where the views were incredible. Rodrigo was a great guide, was very knowledgable and spoke excellent English. We would recommend to all visitors.

Beautiful waterfall at the end of the valley. Viewing platform overlooking the valley and waterfall, where you will also see plenty of wildlife. Very peaceful, no crowds.
