“We had a good trip to Refúgio Ecológico Caiman–thank you for arranging it. The variety of animals we saw was impressive–more than on my last trip to the Pantanal. In addition to jaguars, we saw ocelots, anteaters, a tapir, agouti, coatis, capybara, deer, white lipped peccaries and many, many birds.”— Mark Horn, USA
