Mato Grosso do Sul is one of Brazil's 27 Federative Units

Known for its biodiversity, Mato Grosso do Sul has an important source of income based on ecological tourism, especially in the Pantanal region.

Recognized by Unesco as a World Heritage site, the Pantanal is a plain that floods periodically and is one of the most diverse nature reserves on the planet. The main city in Pantanal is Corumba, whose main activity is fishing .

Serra da Bodoquena, where the city of Bonito is located, developed from intense sedimentation and turned into a calcareous rock which extends 220 km from the city of Miranda until Porto Murtinho.

The State capital, Campo Grande, is marked by diverse customs and cuisine, and reflects cultural traces left by the Indians, migrants from Brazil and other countries such the Syrian-Lebanese, Japanese, Bolivian and Paraguayan.
