Most of landlocked State of Mato Grosso is characterized by a landscape of open pastures, though the region also features swathes of the Amazonian forest in the north and sprawling wetlands in the south. An exploration of these three distinct ecosystems top many State of Mato Grosso itineraries, allowing visitors to see the less-traveled side of Brazil that encompasses sprawling savannahs, large plantations, and rolling hills. A well-rounded State of Mato Grosso holiday also includes a visit to state capital Cuiaba and the region's national park, home to impressive sandstone mountains, deep canyons, and gushing waterfalls.
