The nicest place to stay in Corumbá is the Hotel Gold Fish, Av. Rio Branco 2799 (on the road to Ladario; tel. 067/3231-5106; double room R$120). The hotel is 8km (5 miles) outside of downtown, on the banks of the River Paraguay. Rooms are clean and simple, but the large outdoor pool and children's play area make this hotel worthwhile. The city's top hotel is the Hotel Nacional Palace, Rua America 936 (tel. 067/3234-6000;; double room R$170). Rooms are clean and comfortable, with tile floors, firm single or double beds, and hot showers.

Lodges in the South Pantanal (Corumba) -- The lodges we've listed also regularly arrange transfers from Campo Grande. They also offer both eco-tourism trips and sport-fishing packages. Both lodges are located off the Estrada Parque (Park Rd.) a little-traveled dirt and gravel road crisscrossed by innumerable small watercourses that -- much like the Transpantaneira in the North -- offer tremendous wildlife-viewing opportunities.
