Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean Pantanal in December?

Hi Members,

Im Currently in Rio and i am heading south and thinking of going up to the Pantanal and then on to Corumba to Bolivia.

I have heard that it is the wet season in the Pantanal at the moment
and all the animals in the south migrate to the higher plains of the north, but i also heard from another guy that it is too hot and humid and there is not many animals to see at this time, and that the Argentinian Pantanal in the north west of the country is a better option.

Has any body any recomendations or has anyone just come from there?

comments would be greatly appreciated..


Rory :)

The argentinian north is truly beautiful in this time a year (their Pantanal is mid-north, and not north-west, as far as I know). Hot, very hot, but beautiful. Also, consider the north-east, lots and lots of birds right now.

Thanks Neils for the info but have you any advice on the pantanal in Brazil as well for this time of the year, or am i better of heading to Argentinian or paraguayan Pantanal?

Also any suggestions on Paraguay?

For suggestions on Paraguay, better ask Susanna (Snatterand); she travelled there a lot more than I did. The little I know is that the Chaco in this season is hotter than is good for you.

Haven't been to Brazilian pantanal, so I'm afraid I cannot help there...
