Miranda is in Mato Grosso do Sul in Brazil.

Contents

Understand

This little farming town built around a now disused mill and a railway station lies some 200 km west of Campo Grande at the turn-off to Bonito. It has long been overlooked as a gateway to the Pantanal and Bonito, but is actually far closer to both than either Corumbá or Campo Grande.

Miranda is also a real town, preoccupied more with its own local economy and culture than with tourism. It lies in the heart of indigenous Terena land and the communities have a large cultural and arts centre, with panels on Terena history and arts and crafts for sale.

Every October Miranda throws the spectacular Festa do Homem Pantaneiro: four days of rodeos, lassoing and general revelry that combine well with the water festival in Corumbá.

The crystal-clear river Salobrinho just outside town has great birdlife and a community of giant otters. There is a wonderful British girder bridge just west of town given as a gift to Brazil by King George V.

Get in

The Campo Grande-Corumbá road crosses the Rio Miranda bridge (two service stations before it), then continues paved all the way to cross the Rio Paraguai. Miranda is served by numerous daily buses from Corumbá, Campo Grande and Bonito. There is a tourist booth just outside the rodoviária, opposite the Zero Hora bakery and supermarket.
