Caiman Ecological Refuge

Caiman Ecological Refuge (Old Farmers House)

Caiman Ecological Refuge is situated in Brazil’s southern Pantanal region. The unique property combines a functioning cattle ranch with upscale accommodation and eco-tourism. The refuge is home to many wild species, diverse landscapes, as well as two small lodges. The ranch-style lodges have swimming pools, air-conditioned rooms and excellent food. To show off their fine produce, a traditional barbecue is held twice weekly, allowing guests to come together and enjoy local specialities.

Hotel Santa Teresa

Hotel Santa Teresa

Hotel Santa Teresa is a recently renovated property in the Santa Teresa district of Rio de Janeiro. The neo-colonial style building sits close to the local bars, restaurants, artisan shops, and is just 20 minutes from the famous Copacabana beach. This urban style retreat has maintained a strong link to the past with Portuguese tiles and reclaimed wooden floors which all give the hotel a traditional feel. Rooms are decorated with indigenous art, the sacred art of Rio de Janeiro’s baroque period and traditional handicrafts. The hotel also has an outdoor pool overlooking Guanabara Bay.

What people are saying

“We recently travelled to Barcelona and Mallorca with the expert help of Oroko and will never book a holiday any other way again! The staff were so friendly and knowledgable and made the process of booking extremely easy. The travel pack was very impressive with our luggage tags, complimentary treats for the airport, and comprehensive guide to both areas with recommended restaurants which didn’t disappoint. I couldn’t speak highly enough of our experience with this company and would highly recommend to friends.”
