Posted on October 18, 2011, the report written by Seth Kugel for the tourism section of The New York Times talks about the Brazilian Pantanal. The reporter tells how was his time in the Pantanal region.
"The Transpantaneira Highway, despite its grand name, is an unfinished dirt road running 90 or so miles from the Brazilian town of Poconé into the Pantanal, a vast wetlands many consider South America`s finest destination for animal viewing", says the journalist.
During his stay in the Pantanal region, the reporter observed several species of the fauna of Pantanal such as alligators, giant anteater, macaws, capybaras and coatis.
Kugel compared the Pantanal to the Amazon, saying that the Pantanal lives in the shadow of the "mammoth neighbor to the north". The reporter said that despite love Amazon for its rivers, villages, exotic fruits and vastness, the accomodations are more expensive in the region and more distant of the cities and airports, in addition to being difficult to spot animals.
"In the Pantanal, the jaguars may be evasive, but the capybaras, the hyacinth macaws, the giant anteaters and the ring-tailed coatis will practically pose for you if you approach quietly", says the journalist of the North-American publication.
