Meia Lua is a very special place. The ranch is a family-owned and managed working farm. Neto is an incredible host who missed no opportunities to make our experience special. Our group of 4, two couples, spent 3 nights at Meia Lua. The pousada is lovely, with a nice pool, hammocks, and simple but comfortable rooms. The wildlife was incredible. Numerous toucans and hyacinth macaws live in the trees and are routine visitors around the house, and we saw armadillo, 2 giant ant eaters, and 3 grey foxes without ever leaving the property. The food was unbelievable. Neto's Mom and Grandma made huge quantities of local and regional food, and eating with the family made it a really personal experience. From guiding us for horseback riding, showing us the local spots in town, organising our snorkelling trip to Bonito, guiding us on walks in the jungle on the property, and building great bonfires under the stars, Neto made everything easy and personalised. He is an excellent self-taught English speaker and was also excellent at logistics, like sending us a video showing the subtle turnoff from the main road to make it easy to find. Neto also organised our day trip to the wet Pantanal and accompanied us to make things easy and also get real time feedback on the various activities. If you want a boutique experience, great Pantanal wildlife, and thoughtful service, this is your place. Cannot recommend it enough!!!…
Though our trip was short, we loved the peace and tranquility offered by Meia Lua. The ranch is a beautiful place, with lots of fascinating wildlife, like nothing we had ever seen. Our hosts were incredibly kind and took special care to make sure we had a relaxing stay. The food was delicious, but company even better. We went on a sunset hike around the property and generally enjoyed walking around, feeding the donkey, relaxing in the pool, and getting to know our kind host family and other guests. Really comfortable and nice rooms. Neto was also helpful in setting up a safari with another nearby fazenda. We definitely recommend visiting this special place!
We stayed 5 days at this wonderful ranch. A beautiful place with nice and clean rooms. A great place to relax, but also to do fun activities like safari and horse riding (beautiful experience!). The family is really warm, welcoming and helpful, and make sure you are having a good time. The food is Very Good :-), home cooked and made with local products. Make sure you taste the traditional Brazilian food, the nice cakes and other sweets, not to forget the Brazilian bbq. Certainly one of our highlights in our trip. Absolute recomend it! Thank you for the lovely time!
We have been at the ranch for four days. The Fazenda offers beside the silence and relaxing moments also a lot for families with kids: wildlife, horse riding, fishing and being among the cowboys with their cattle. The owner-family is very friendly and make the stay an experience - they showed and explained a lot. The service is very good, the two maids lovingly take care of the guests, esp. kids. It is also a wonderful place to watch different native birds (e.g. toucans) very close in the middle of the trees.
A small 6 or 8 rooms pouzada in the heart of brasilian Pantanal and Mato Grosso. They also accept rv's motorhomes and campers. The toucans, partots and all kind of birds will wake you up and stay around for the day, even austriches! You can take tours, horseback riding and night walks. The pool is nice and breakfast, lunch and dinner are available. Simple, but good local food.
