Campo Grande

Choose another destination:
Campo Grande is the main starting point for those who want to see the Southern Pantanal or Bonito. Nicknamed Cidade Morena, because of its chestnut-coloured earth, Campo Grande has in less than fifty years been transformed from an insignificant settlement into a buzzing metropolis with a population of 650,000 and an annual growth of 3%. Founded in 1889, the city was only made the capital of the new state of Mato Grosso do Sul in the late 1970s, since when it has almost doubled in size, though it retains a distinctly rural flavour: its downtown area manages to combine skyscraping banks and apartment buildings with ranchers general stores and poky little shops selling strange forest herbs and Catholic ex votos. Campo Grande is a relatively salubrious market centre for an enormous cattle-ranching region; it is also an important centre of South American trade routes from Paraguay, Bolivia, Argentina and the south of Brazil.
