Caiman Ecological Refuge (“superior” category room at Baiazinha lodge)

  • Caiman Refuge’s “Baiazinha” lodge sits next to a permanent lake

Caiman Lodge was established in 1987 and was the first ecotourism operation in the Southern Pantanal. It is located on a 131,000-acre (53,000-hectare) ranch 23 miles (36 kilometers) from the small town of Miranda, in the Pantanal wetlands in the State of Mato Grosso do Sul.

It has 2 complexes some distance apart from each other, which don’t share any common spaces: Baiazinha, and Cordilheira.

Baiazinha Lodge has 6 rooms and is located on the shores of a permanent lake (i.e. never dries up) with crystal-clear waters. Cordilheira Lodge has 5 suites and sits between a seasonal lake and a wooded hillside.

Our Lodging Categorization Standards

Why have we devised our own lodging classification standards?

Argentinean hotels are often categorized using stars, but with different criteria from those used internationally. These criteria are sometimes abused or outdated and therefore they don't accurately represent neither reality nor international standards.

COMFORT CATEGORY LODGING*

Nice hotels in good locations, with comfortable rooms including private bathroom, cable TV, phone in room and in most cases also mini bar and internet access. In some destinations, also a small gym.

DELUXE CATEGORY LODGING*

A perfect choice for travelers who are looking for accommodations with more facilities and room amenities. Deluxe category lodging sometimes has spa facilities and a more luxurious decorative style.
