By Car

Take Highway BR-262 out of Campo Grande towards Corumba. At the cloverleaf interchange in Miranda take a right, an asphalt road will take you to the city Agachi. There you will see signs indicating the way to the Caiman Ecological Refuge.

Around 300 meters ahead take a left on a dirt road. Continue for 36 km and you will see the entrance to the Caiman Ranch on your right, where a guard will greet you and ask for ID. Once in Caiman, continue ahead and take a left at the first junction. You will pass over the “Ponte do Paizinho” and arrive at the Caiman Ecological Refuge’s reception.

By Plane

Caiman has a private grass landing strip 1400 meters long, well suited for smaller single and dual engine private planes. We do not offer taxi service. This should be arranged through a third party.
