CUIABÁ

CUIABÁ, the capital of the State of Mato Grosso is situated in the geographic center of South America.

A former frontier boom town during the 18th. century gold rush, it is now again a lively place, one of Brazil’s fastest growing cities. Cuiabá is a good starting point for ecotourism excursions since it is located in the center of three spectacular biomas: the Pantanal, the Cerrado and the Amazon Forest. The Centro Cultural Brasil-USA da Florida invites you to discover and explore this 2014 FIFA World Cup Host City and its distinctive culture based on European and indigenous influences.
