INTRODUCING CAMPO GRANDE
Known as the Cidade Morena not for its beautiful women but rather its red earth, Campo Grande is the capital of Mato Grosso do Sul, a modern city that is the major gateway to the southern Pantanal. Soya and cattle are the traditional sources of its wealth, while education (there are four universities in the city), commerce and tourism are growing industries. Campo Grande lies 716km south of Cuiabá and 403km southeast of Corumbá. Founded around 1875 as the village of Santo Antônio de Campo Grande, Campo Grande really began to grow when the railway came through in 1914. The city was declared the capital of Mato Grosso do Sul by decree of military president Ernesto Giesel in 1977.
THINGS TO DO IN CAMPO GRANDE
BUS STATION FOR INTER-CITY SERVICES
Campo Grande’s plush new bus station is 6km outside the centre on the road to São Paulo. Local buses 061, 085, 087, 162, 165 and 189 run from here to the centre, or a taxi will cost you around R$20. There are frequent buses to Corumbá (R$72, six hours, 11 daily), but only one is direct.
CAMPO GRANDE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - CGR
Aeroporto Internacional de Campo Grande is 7km from town; to get there, take the Indubrasil bus from the bus station (R$2.10, every 30 minutes). To get a bus to the centre from the airport, walk out of the airport to the bus stop on the main road. A taxi costs R$22.
MUSEUMS & GALLERIES
Museu das Culturas Dom Bosco
Relocated to a R$2 million building designed by Italian architect Massimo Chiappetta in the Parque das Nações Indígenas, this 3400-sq-meter expansion houses an excellent collection of over 10,000 insects and a beautiful exhibit of indigenous bororo headdresses and other artifacts from the indigenous moro, karajá and xavante groups.
Aquario do Pantanal
Due for completion in November 2014, this ambitious aquarium/research centre promises to become the city´s number-one attraction for kids, teens and the family in a very short time. It will house 263 species of Pantanal fish and other native wildlife in gigantic walk-through tanks holding an incredible 6.6 million litres of water.
MARKETS & STREETS
A great market worth a stroll is the Feira Central, a massive open-air food and shopping court lined with Japanese sobá -noodle joints and other food and merchandise stalls. It’s packed with revelers on weekends.
Samba, over 100 kinds of cachaça (sugarcane alcohol) and live futebol make this Campo Grande’s in place for a crowd of all ages. With a bamboo beach-bar atmosphere, gigantic menu of food and drink, pool tables and live music every night, there is a little bit of something for everybody here.
A beautiful candlelit bar in a restored house, full of local art. The intimate space attracts an artistic crowd, which comes for the live jazz and MPB nightly and upscale tereré (drinking).
Nature & Wildlife
Muito Bonito Hotel & Tour Office
A nice travel agency working with Bonito, Pantanal and Pousada Passo do Lontra that has worked hard to maintain its excellent reputation in providing ecological expeditions. Caters for low- to mid-range tourist budgets, including hostel facilities for backpackersbut offers professional and reliable package tours.
The best dishes at this regional institution require an advance order, such as the galinhada (chicken stew, six hours, R$61) or pacu recheado (a tasty fish stuffed with manioc and spices, three hours, R$65). It’s pricey, but as the only restaurant in the city with culinary stars, it’s worth it.
Shock-value old school Italian cantina and pizzeria. Attentive service, mega portions and authentic surroundings to pig out in. Try the tagliarini alla cacciatora for two (R$35).
If you like the all-you-can-eat experience but don’t have a wallet as big as your stomach, give this central cheapie a go. It has the added bonus of being open on a Sunday, too.
