With so much to see and explore in this part of Brazil it is perhaps time for you to start planning that vacation.
Cuiaba has a number of attractions for visitors to see in town. In the centre of Cuiaba the Praca de Republica is a good place to start and is where the main roads lead into other parts of the city. In the Avenida Getulio Vargas, one of the more prominent streets, are lots of hotels and restaurants. Many of the restaurants serve meats from the Pantanal region. In Cuiaba there are lots of shops with cowboy gear and other crafts which make wonderful souvenirs from this interesting region. The Basilica de Senor Bom Jesus de Cuiaba is a modern church with art deco features in the centre of the city and very interesting to visit. The riverside port area is a pleasant place to explore and the Museo do Rio Cuiaba and the aquarium are the main attractions here.

Another recommended activity in Cuiaba is to take a guided hike at sunset to the Transpantaneira where nocturnal creatures can be sighted. If you are really lucky you might see a jaguar. Canoeing on the Pantanal is another excellent experience and where giant otters and monkeys are frequently seen. Many people also ride in this area on horseback. One of the best overnight journeys is to Chapada dos Guimarães which are the mountains just north of Cuiaba. Hiking in the canyons and seeing the rock formations as well as the many macaws is a wonderful experience. The cheap flights to Cuiaba open up lots of possibilities for a very diverse vacation.
